Tank Pumping

Does your home have a septic tank?

residential septic tankTank pumping is essential for maintaining a well-functioning drainfield and for avoiding costly repairs. It can prevent solids from escaping into the drainfield and clogging soil pores, and it will contribute to an overall well functioning residential septic system.

Most septic tanks require pumping every three to five years, but this number can be anywhere from every one year to five years depending on your home’s particular system makeup. A home with a garbage disposal, for example, should be have its tank pumped more often than a home that does not have one. As a general rule of thumb, assume that if there are more people using your septic system, there is going to be increased water flow; and if there is increased water flow, your septic tank will fill up faster and therefore need more frequent pumping. When in doubt, talk with a plumbing professional and consult with your plumber the next time you have your septic tank pumped.
