Tub drain without screen OK for septic ?
I just replaced the hot water heater and nearly all the plumbing in my home. The bathtub/shower, and kitchen fixtures got replaced as well.
When I finally finished it all, my wife made an observation about the tub drain. She noticed that the new "toe-tap" design doesn't have a screen like the old one did. As a consequence, hair that would have stayed up top during a shower now goes down the drain.
My question...will allowing a pinch of hair to go down the drain every day screw up our septic system ? Would reverting to the old-style screen drain keep our leach-field clear of hairballs ??
Thanks for any (useful) responses !
