In South Texas we don’t have to worry much about freezing septic systems — we consider ourselves lucky if we get a few weeks of “winter” weather every year. However, since it’s “better safe than sorry,” there are a couple things you might want to consider during the winter months to keep your system functioning properly.
For conventional/standard septic systems, it is extremely rare in our area for the system components to freeze or bust. However, we find it slightly more common with the spray lines in aerobic systems, since they are usually buried closer to the surface.
If you experience any signs of a septic system backup — like bad smells or standing water in your yard — call a septic maintenance provider to schedule an inspection.
