There are many things in your home that will function best with regular maintenance, and the septic system is no exception. One of the best ways to maintain your septic system is with regular septic tank pumping. There are measures you can take on a daily basis to keep your septic system running well, such as conserving water usage, avoiding putting grease and oils down the drains, and minding what you flush. Even with all of these considerations, septic tank pumping is necessary to keep your system functioning.
Septic tank pumping is recommended every 3 to 5 years. When you flush the toilet, use the sink, or run the dishwasher or washing machine, that waste and water go into the septic tank. In the septic tank, the solids sink to the bottom, while the liquid waste floats and is reabsorbed into the ground via the septic drain field. If septic tank pumping is not performed and the solid waste is not removed, the solids will eventually clog the tank and cause a system failure, which can cause sewage backups in your home that pose risks to your health, not to mention being a huge inconvenience!
