I really like the town of Oviedo but I notice many areas that use Septic systems. I am from New Jersey and we use public sewer. Can anybody fill me in on any worries I should have?

Yes many many a many a folks have septic in Florida. I myself have been here my whole life and have little experience with them. How ever I still use scott toilet paper to this day which is great for septic tanks.

I think it is less common in the Orlando area.

I'm on septic and no problems at all. It needs to get pumped out every once in a while. After about 20 years, I see them being replaced in my neighborhood.

Find out where your tank and drain field is located.
Don't plant trees on top of them as the roots can destroy your drain field.
Never drive heavy equipment on top of those areas. Tanks can collapse .
Have it drained every 3-4 years.
Try to limit the amount of garbage that goes down your drain . ie: coffee grounds, oils, cleaning fluids, paint cleanup.
If your going to add a biological element to help the field digest the junk use a liquid as opposed to granular.
They usually have a lifespan of about 25 yrs and than the drain field needs to be replaced. ($5-6,000.)
