Septic tank pumping is done to remove buildup in the septic tank of unwanted materials like sludge and scum. The correct frequency for septic tank pumping depends on several factors, including the size of your tank and how many people are in your household. Some households need pumping once a year while others can go as much as 3 to 5 years between pumping. We can advise you on how regularly you are likely to need septic tank pumping.

There are some key reasons as to why septic tank pumping is vital to keep your septic system in working order. Some of these reasons include:

  1. It’s been a while since you last had pumping done. If you know you need pumping every 3 years and it’s getting close to that point, give us a call.
  2. If you are seeing symptoms that your tank is getting full, it is time for it to be pumped. Failure to do so may lead to overflow and more costly repairs that a septic tank pumping can avoid.
  3. Septic tank pumping helps to prevent issues like backup, leaking pipes, slow draining, and unpleasant odors.
  4. If you have flushed items down a toilet that should not be flushed, it is important to have your septic tank pumped promptly. Some of these items include disinfectant wipes, flushable wipes, paper towels, cotton balls, Q-tips, and products made from absorbent materials (e.g., diapers, tampons, and cat litter).
  5. Regular septic tank pumping will help to improve the efficiency and lifespan of your system. This will also increase the value of your home.
