How Will I Know I Need To Have My Septic Tank Pumped?

Your septic system is a essentially a very simple mechanism. Because your property is not connected to the centralized sewer system, wastewater and solid waste from your home is transported to your septic tank via inlet pipes. Inside your septic tank, bacteria and chemicals work to break down the waste into scum and sludge. Over a period of time, this scum and sludge waste will build up and therefore must be pumped out otherwise the tank risks over-flooding, which can lead to cracks in the pipes, leaks, and sewage backups.

The frequency of your septic tank pumping depends on the size of your septic tank and the sizer of your household. If you have a large household and a smaller septic tank you will naturally need more frequent septic tank pumping than you would with a small household that has a larger septic tank. The accepted rule of thumb is for a family comprising of four to have their septic tank pumped once every three years. If you need help determining your septic tank’s sludge levels, call the professionals at United Sewer and Drain Services today.
