Septic Cleaning and Pumping

Septic Pumper with Logo

Did you know that Household septic tanks should be pumped every three to five years? 


The following are four major factors that can influence the frequency of septic pumping:

  • Household size

  • Total wastewater generated

  • Volume of solids in wastewater

  • Septic tank size


What Happens When You Neglect Your Septic Tank Pumping Needs?

Septic tanks are designed to hold a relatively high volume of liquid and solid matter. Eventually, debris will begin to pile up, accumulating on the floor and walls of your tank. If ignored for too long, this waste will begin to harden, making it difficult to remove and reducing your system’s overall capacity. Consequently, your plumbing system can begin to suffer drastic consequences. Many homeowners might notice sewer puddles forming on the grass where their children play. Sometimes families also experience frustrating clogs and even indoor flooding due to severe backups. All these issues can wreak further havoc on your home because of water damage, mold growth and exposure to illness causing bacteria.
