Septic Tank Pumping
Septic tank pumping should be happening at least once every 3-5 years, depending on size of the tank. Another thing that will change how often you need your septic tank pumped would be the number of people living the household. Pumping helps prevent a lot of further issues that could become very expensive very quick. Homeowners could potentially pump their tank themselves, but this is not recommended because if you do it on your own, you also have to find a safe place to dispose it. We save you a lot of time, frustration, and money by doing septic tank pumping regularly.

Pumping out a septic tank regularly will help reduce the amount of back-up/build-up. Most solids in the septic tank can be dissolved eventually, but there are some things that cannot be broken down. The best way to avoid this issue is to avoid putting anything besides waste and toilet paper into your septic system. Avoid putting things like feminine products, cigarette butts, cat litter, paper towels, and wet wipes down your trains. Replacing your septic system can get very expensive very fast, and we understand. So that is why the septic tank pumping is so important to do on a regular schedule, just to make sure you are good to go.
