Septic Tanks Cleaned
How Often to Pump?
For most families, septic pumping is required every three to five years. There are a lot of factors that can impact this timeline, including how much wastewater is produced by the home, what all is flushed or put down the drains, and if there is any type of damage to the septic system.
It is a good idea to have the tank pumped in advance of problems developing, as this can save you time and money.
Signs of Problems
There are several signs that may indicate you need septic tank pumping. Often the first sign is slowing down of the drains in the home, including slow flushing toilets and slow draining showers, baths and even dishwashers and washing machines.
It is also possible to see water on the surface of the ground around the septic system, or even unusually lush grass and vegetation growth over and around the septic tank and the drainage field.
