We have never had problems with our septic system - It is cleaned once a year.

There is only my husband and I living in this house now. We work and so are not home every day until the evening - and weekends. We do laundry. We do not have a disposal in the sink.

He has lived here since 1988 going on 20 years and always threw food stuff down the sink. I have only lived here for 7 years.

Every year the guy who cleans out the septic system convinces my husband that he has to buy special "enzymes" to break down everything and keep the system "healthy". I think it is a buch of crap, excuse the pun but Whatdowomenknow. He buys the stuff and puts it in the system.

I drink one cup of coffee every morning. I use 3 level coffee scoops. I clean my small french press and put the used coffee grinds down the sink.

My husband says I am going to destroy the system and when he has to pay thousands to fix it, my fault.

Will my 3 coffee measures of used grinds daily destroy the septic system?
