According to the manufacturer, to ensure your effluent filter is functioning properly, it should be inspected every year. Under normal conditions, your effluent filter will function for several years before cleaning is necessary.
Most people prefer to pay a septic tank service provider take care of filter maintenance at the same time they are having their tank pumped. However, if you would like to inspect and/or clean your filter on your own, please be sure to follow these maintenance instructions.

Custom Concrete & Septic
The Hawai'i State Department of Health has announced that new cesspools are no longer allowed in Hawai'i. According to KHON, "Hawaii has about 88,000 cesspools, far more than any other state, and these cesspools inject about 55 million gallons of raw sewage into Hawai'i’s groundwater every day, potentially spreading diseases and harming the quality of drinking water supplies and recreational waters." This move will stop the addition of pollution from approximately 800 new cesspools per year.
Governor David Ige also implemented Act 120, a tax credit of up to $10,000 offered to eligible homeowners who want to upgrade their cesspools beginning January 1, 2016 through the end of 2020. It is important that homeowners first speak with a contractor who can help establish whether or not their cesspool upgrade is qualified for the tax credit.
Custom Concrete & Septic is the primary provider of septic tanks on Kaua'i, and we are happy to work with Kaua'i homeowners and contractors looking to upgrade their cesspools to a septic tank system. Please contact us at 822-7656 or firstname.lastname@example.org when you are ready to place your order!
From the State of Hawaii, Department of Health Wastewater Branch website:
What is Act 120?
Act 120 provides a temporary income tax credit for the cost of upgrading or converting a qualified cesspool to a septic tank system or an aerobic treatment unit system, or connecting to a sewer system. A taxpayer may apply for a tax credit of up to $10,000 for each qualified cesspool. Tax credits are available for five years. The tax credit starts in tax year 2016, January 1, 2016 and ends in tax year 2020, December 31, 2020. There is a $5,000,000 cap that is available for each tax year. Any taxpayer who is not eligible to claim the credit in a taxable year shall be eligible to claim the credit in the subsequent taxable years from 2017 to 2020.
