With a regular septic pumping schedule your system will not only function more efficiently but it will have a longer lifespan. Routine pumping is far more cost effective than a septic system replacement or damage to your septic drain field.

Septic Tank Maintenance

How often should I pump the septic tank?

Many factors go into determining septic tank pumping frequency.

The size of your septic tank, the number of people using it, and a variety of other factors like a garbage disposal in your home. The best recommendation is to have your septic pumping done at least once every 3 years.

The #1 way to avoid septic tank problems is regular septic system cleaning. Septic pumping maximizes the life of your septic system and can help prevent septic failures.

Septic System Problems

How do I know if I have a septic problem?

The last thing any homeowner wants to see is a failing septic system. Regular septic tank pumping can prevent septic system backups and other costly problems. Here are some common signs that your septic system may need attention:

  • Sluggish or backed up drains and toilets
  • Bad smells inside or outside of your home
  • Wet ground or lush vegetation in the area around your tank
  • Funny gurgling noises from your plumbing
