Contrary to popular belief, septic tanks need to be pumped on a regular basis to ensure the proper function of the tank and preserve the life of the lateral lines. How often you should pump your tank depends on usage and is best determined by the number of people using the system. You can reference the following chart to find the suggested pumping frequency for conventional septic systems.
Pumping frequency for aerobic systems can vary widely and can best be determined by checking sludge and scum layers in the system with a Sludge Judge. Call one of our offices and we can arrange to check your system, in most cases, at no charge.
