In 17 years of experience with two septic systems, we had to have one of them pumped, once...
So far, one pair of toddler briefs have gone down (he's 3 and was potty training...), and one feminine product (Mrs. A forgot one time). They haven't broken the pump yet. We also didn't have a strainer on the kitchen sink drains for quite a while, but that has been remedied.
