Septic Tank Pumping
Pumping out your septic tank gets rid of the solid sludge that accumulates at the bottom of the tank and the grease that accumulates as scum floating near the top. The removal of septic waste by pumping it out of the septic tank is a critical step as part of your septic tank services. Pumping out your septic tank when needed will extend the life of the septic field.
How often should you pump out your septic tank? This depends on a number of factors such as the size of your tank, the size of your family and how much of your wastewater is solid waste.
Septic Tank Cleaning
The number of people dumping wastewater down the drain makes a big difference in how often the tank needs pumping. So does a garbage disposal. A family with a garbage disposal typically dumps up to 50% more solid wastes down the drain, therefore, needs to pump the septic tank twice as often.
In any septic tank, some of the waste solids consist of sand, grit, bits of plastic and other non-organic materials. Since no enzyme or bacteria can digest these wastes, they must be physically pumped out of the septic tank periodically.
To determine if the septic tank is in need of being pumped out, you must measure the tank scum and thickness. This is not a normal job for a homeowner and can even be dangerous. Therefore, it should be left up to a professional. We also provide camera inspections as part of our service package.
