Septic Tank Pumping

Many people are not sure how often to have septic tank pumping done. Having it done too often is unnecessary, but waiting too long to have it done can cause a lot of damage and create many different problems.  It can also ruin your septic system and require you to have a completely new septic system installed.

It is recommended that septic tank pumping be done every 3 to 5 years for the average sized household.  If you have a large family, you will probably need to have it done closer to every 3 years.  If you only have 1 or 2 people using the septic system on a regular basis, you could probably have it pumped every 5 years.  The more people you have using the septic system, the more often you should have it pumped out.

If septic tank pumping is not done regularly, it can cause a lot of problems.  Sewage and waste can back up into your home through the drains.  Raw sewage can leak into your home and cause flooding and cause a lot of damage.  Since it is sewage, it will need to be cleaned up by professionals who are trained to deal with and safely clean up sewage.  It can cause damage to your home and require you to have to replace sheetrock, flooring, and even furniture.  Regular septic tank pumping can save you a lot of money and a lot of hassle.
