    Very good post, Some Garbage disposers inject an enzyme to help the septic tank.

        I'm just now seeing this thread. From my past experience building house with my FIL, a septic tank properly installed will never be a problem unless something else impacts it. My dad's house just sold last year (2020) and at the time it was 57 y/o. There has never been an issue with the tank and field lines and Mom and Dad raised 4 boys. We always threw the toilet paper in and flushed it too. My house is 20 years old and there are some problems with the field lines but that is because a stupid woman had come to the house and when turning around she drove out into my yard and sank in the field lines. Had that not happened I'm sure there would be no issues now.

              Daughter was asking for a photo and I came across this from two years ago. Not to brag but it is impressive. The only thing I can compare it to was our 65 year old tank. It was pretty crappy. :lol:

              1st, I said a "stupid woman" which you definitely are NOT.
              2nd, the aforementioned stupid woman had plenty of space in front of our garage which is wide enough to park 3 cars in with which she could have turned around.

              The sad part is that she told me when I was trying to pull her car out of my yard with my 4X4 truck, "I'm from up north and I know that when you get into snow you just keep moving as long as you can. Since I had already gone out into the yard I thought I could just circle around and drive out." The idiot was actually lucky because if she had been about 20 feet to the right she would have slipped off the septic pad and into the woods. My truck wouldn't have pulled her out of that...

              But your truck could have pushed her down farther...
