If you’re a new property owner, the idea of your 1st septic pumping may make you rather stressed – but if you understand what to expect then it’ll be more like an exciting adventure! Here are five points that will happen when they show up for your visit.
A septic tank must be cleaned on average every 2 to 4 years. How typically you need your system maintained depends mainly on the size of it, how many people use it, and what kind of wastewater is in there- for example if heavy toilet tissue use builds up scum quickly then a cleaning would happen sooner than somebody who doesn’t have that issue.
Alternative systems with electrical float switches, pumps, or mechanical components need to be checked more often, generally once a year. Appropriate cleaning can also prolong the life of your pumps in these alternate systems. Often there are filters that need cleaned, and it is necessary to have the tank looked for leakages.
Exactly how commonly you need to have your septic tank pumped will vary based on a variety of factors. Larger septic tanks do not need to be pumped as frequently, and tanks made of specific materials will be more resistant to leakages from overfilling. If you have fewer people in your home, your septic tank will fill more slowly and will not require pumping as frequently.
