In the midst of the COVID-19 epidemic, many people are taking action to combat the spread and keep themselves healthy. Due to the ease with which coronavirus can spread around, it’s important that along with being safe in public you minimize exposure in your home as well. Along with spreading through the air, there’s also a fear of getting exposed through things such as water. You may be wondering, “will my septic tank treat COVID?” Here’s what you need to know.
Can Covid Transfer Through Water?
To this day, there has been no concrete evidence that COVID spreads or transfers through the water. Counterpoints have been made because of things such as swimming pools appearing to transfer it. However, this is better attributed to the crowd of people gathered there as opposed to the water itself.
If you’re worried about the spread of COVID-19 through water, you should take as many precautions as you need to feel safe and comfortable. However, tests and studies have not revealed any evidence that this is something to worry about.
Do Septic Tanks Filter Viruses?
Even if corona did transfer through water there would still be nothing to fear. Septic tanks break down and keep germs out of your home meaning that no matter the virus you can rest assured knowing that a properly maintained septic tank will treat COVID no different than any other virus.
However, to help your septic system works as it should and breaks down bacteria, make sure you operate routine maintenance on your septic system so that it continues to run and operate as it should.
Make Sure Your Septic Tank is Running Properly
If you have any doubts at all about your septic system then take the measures to ensure it’s running properly. You can accomplish this by annually pumping it and avoiding flushing any foreign objects or chemicals down the drain. Keeping the pipes free-flowing and healthy is a surefire way of keeping both your home and you healthy.
