2. Sheds rain, holds snow
Ground that is saturated by autumn rain is more likely to experience a freeze when the frigid temperatures of winter hit. Using a frost blanket on top of your septic tank and leach fields means that this rain is shed off effortlessly, protecting the integrity of the soil beneath it. During the winter snows, a frost blanket helps improve the insulating properties of snow, increasing the chances that it will not freeze during this time.
3. Protects against costly damage
A frozen septic system is not an unheard-of occurrence in this part of the country. Damage caused by this can mean that you have to fork out hundreds -- or even thousands -- of dollars in repair costs. Using straw as a covering material gives you less protection against a freeze and leaves you with a giant mess to clean up in the spring. Frost blankets are staked to the ground, ensuring stable coverage all winter long.
