Charlie14 if you haven't had a septic tank before be careful about what cleaning materials you use. No bleach! Check labels on toilet cleaner, etc. to make sure it is suitable for use with septic tanks.
Also ensure the water company is not charging you a drainage element on your bills.
We have pretty small water bills because we pay only for the metered water we use and not for drainage at all.
