You will hear different information from several different sources, but one thing all septic services agree on is that you perform septic pumping on a regular basis.

What is Residential Septic Pumping? What should you expect when pumping a septic tank?
The first step, which can be more difficult than it sounds, is to locate the septic system. Many times homeowners are like “I think it’s over there somewhere?” Finding the lid to your septic tank is more difficult if you don’t have risers. Don’t worry… If you have recently purchased your home you may not know where the septic tank is. Our technicians are trained to be able to help you find the system and dig up the lid. At this point we should be ready for the actual septic pumping. When the tank is completely emptied, our team will wash it down and pump out any more water. This ensures that ALL solids have been pumped out. It’s when the tank is nice and clean that our team can fully inspect the tank. We take extra care when inspecting the baffles. These help direct the flow inside the tank. Our technicians know to look for any damage that s from age like cracking or even root penetration. When the tank is completely cleaned and inspected we will put the top back on and cover it up if necessary.

Why is it necessary to pump a septic tank?

Septic systems have many parts, but the magic happens inside the septic tank. The way a septic works is simple -Wastewater from your home enters through the septic inlet. The baffles inside the tank will ensure that it is properly separated. FOG (Fats, Oil, and Grease) and lightweight wastes like toilet paper float to the top. Heavier more solid waste sinks to the bottom of the tank. The middle layer is called the effluent. That liquid can safely leave the tank through the outlet. Typically, the effluent will run into a leach field. Sometimes this can be called a drain field. These are large areas filled with rocks and gravel. The drain field is where the water soaks back into the ground. Anything left in it is naturally treated by bacteria in the soil.

The reason that septic tanks need pumping is the solids will build up over time. Septic pumping is the service needed to remove it. When the solids reach about a third of the tanks, they will escape through the outlet and clog the pipes and the drain field. This is know as septic system failure. Now when new waste attempts to enter the tank it will have nowhere to go. If that happens it can flow back into the drains of the house.

We get asked all the time about the frequency of septic pumping… How often is septic pumping necessary?
Every couple years is the minimum. You do not want a septic system to back up. Septic pumping frequency really depends on how many people live in your home and how large the tank is. These two things can help us estimate how often. Homeowners are discouraged from using garbage disposals if you have a septic tank.
