When temperatures fall below freezing, the bacteria in your system will become dormant and cease to function properly. This means your system will not be able to breakdown organic matter and waste efficiently.  As a result, your system may over fill or even freeze up completely.  Fortunately, there are steps you can take to insure your system is prepared for colder weather.

  • Use water—the warmer the better—if you’re worried your spray heads are beginning to freeze.  Simply poor the water around your heads.

  • Spread out your laundry schedule so that you run one warm/hot load a day. 

  • Going away for an extended period? Have someone use warm water in your home regularly.

  • Fix any leaky plumbing fixtures and appliances in your home. This will help prevent freezing.

  • Keep an eye on your system. If any seeping or ponding occurs, as this may indicate a broken line.  Contact your Provider immediately.

  • Use caution when dripping your faucets, as this may lead to a flooded system.  

  • Do not add antifreeze to your system, as it can harm the bacteria.
