COMMON REASONS FOR FROZEN WATER AND SEPTIC SYSTEMS

Lack of Snow Cover:

Snow serves as an insulating blanket overunderground water lines and septic tanks. Snow helps keep the heat of the sewage and the geothermal heat from deep soil layers from freezing. Lack of snow allows frost to go deeper into the ground, potentially freezing your system.

Compacted Snow:

Compacted snow will not insulate as well as uncompacted snow. Driving any type of equipment over the system compacts snow and sends the frost down deeper. Automobiles, snowmobiles, ATV's, foot-traffic, and livestock should stay off the system all year long but especially in the winter. Any time traffic over a sewer pipe, septic tank, or soil treatment area is anticipated, insulated pipe should be used.

Compacted Soils:

Areas that have compacted soils such as driveways, paths or livestock enclosures tend to freeze deeper, affecting septic system components that may be in the area.

Lack of Plant Cover:

This often occurs in new systems installed late in the year where a vegetative cover could not be established before winter. The vegetative cover insulates the system and helps hold snow.  Utilizing Andy’s seeder systems ensures a good vegetative surface over your systems.
