Septic Tank Pumping – Why You Should Get Your Septic Tank Pumped RegularlySeptic Tank Pumping – Why You Should Get Your Septic Tank Pumped Regularly

Septic services are the ultimate destination for all your household wastewater from tubs, showers, sinks, toilets, and washing machines. They are house-by-house systems that send waste to a drain field using sloped pipes. Over time, solids sink to the bottom of the tank, and blackwater, or effluent, flows down through the pipe into your leach field. If you don’t get your septic tank pumped regularly, sewage can back up into your home and cause damage to your septic system.

Getting on a pumping schedule is the best way to minimize costly septic tank problems. Ideally, you want to keep the waste in your septic tank at around 10% of capacity.

When a septic tank is too full, it causes sludge that can block the drainfield and leach fields. Eventually, the system will fail and need to be replaced. Septic tank cleaning and pumping is an investment in your comfort, safety, and the lifespan of your septic system.

You can help your septic system last longer by educating your family and friends about what they should and shouldn’t flush. Have a family meeting about which paper products can be safely flushed, and pin a list of forbidden items for guests to review before visiting. Also, avoid parking vehicles or heavy equipment near your septic tank or drain field, as this can crush the leach field and clog drains in your home. Lastly, we recommend scheduling perc tests to ensure the soil in your septic system can absorb waste properly.
