If you have a septic tank on your property, you might not think about it all that much. It does not require very much maintenance or attention. You might even forget when the last time you had to do anything with it was. It is important though, that you do keep track of when your septic tank was last pumped out. A septic tank needs to be pumped regularly to keep it from getting too full. Residential septic tank pumping needs to be done by a professional septic company. All you have to do is find a reliable company and set up a service appointment.

Residential Septic Tank Pumping Whenever You Need It

It is recommended that residential septic tank pumping be done every two to five years. This may seem like a big gap, but there are different factors that will determine if you need to do it closer to two years or can wait the five years.

The first factor is the size of your septic tank. The smaller the tank, the more often it will need to be pumped out. Another factor is how many people are living in your home on a regular basis and using the septic system. If you have a large household and a small tank, pumping will have to be done more often. If you are living with only a few people and have a large tank, pumping will need to be done more often. If you are not sure when the last time your tank was pumped, it is probably a good idea to call for someone to come and pump it out for you. If your septic tank gets too full it can cause a lot of problems and a huge mess.
