Why do septic tanks need pumping?

As a homeowner, one of the important tasks is to ensure regular emptying of the septic tank. If the septic tanks are not emptied in regular intervals it can cause health issues to the people living in the house and even to the neighbors.

How often the septic tank needs cleaning?

Regular maintenance of your septic tank is a critical and fundamental task to ensure the smooth functioning of your toilet drains. Many homeowners are ignorant of the frequency of emptying their septic tanks. We recommend the septic tanks be pumped every one to two years. Based on the size of the tank and the number of people using the toilets in property, the frequency needs to be adjusted.

Why do you need a professional for the job?

Emptying a septic tank is a big operation and should only be done by professionals. The process involves inspection of your tank, use of vacuum and suction pumps and lastly an evaluation on how frequently it should be pumped in the future. This assessment is highly beneficial and guarantees that you have all of the data to properly maintain your septic tanks.

Factors affecting septic tank pumping frequency

When it comes to septic tank pumping frequency, there are several aspects to consider. Generally, septic tanks are emptied every two years. The intervals at which the septic tanks need to be emptied depend on the number of people on the property and the frequency of use. Another factor that determines septic tank pumping frequency, is the age and size of your septic tank, and seasonal fluctuations.

Importance of Regular Septic Tank Inspections

Along with regular emptying of the septic tank, we also recommend you to assess the tank infrastructure and general functioning health of the system. Failure in carrying out regular cleaning and pumping of septic tanks often results in overflow, backup, flooding, bad odors, health problems, and contamination of surrounding water bodies.

Although three years is an ideal time frame for an inspection, we recommend doing it more frequently to ensure the proper functioning of the tanks. It also helps in proactively detecting blockages and other damages in the tank, saving you a lot of time, effort and money in delayed repairs.

Having proper documentation on the age, capacity, and size of your septic tank, a record of the dates of tank inspections and emptying is also a good practice. This makes it easy to prepare, plan and schedule septic tanks inspections and emptying.

Signs you need to clean your septic tank

Slow Running Drains:

One of the most common and obvious signs that your septic tank is full and needs pumping is your toilet not flushing properly or slow draining.

Foul Odors:

When your septic tank is brimming with sewage, the odor-causing gasses remain trapped in the tank. It then starts to leak through small openings and crevices in the toilet, sink, and drain pipes into your home.

The sudden growth of lawn grass:

Unusual and active plant growth in the area around the septic tank is an indicator that you need to call for professional septic tank emptying services.

Standing Water around Your Property:

If you detect unexpected pooling of water in the vicinity of the drain field of your septic tank, it is a sure sign that the liquid is being pushed to the surface by overflowing contents.

Sewage backup: Sewage backup is a rather unpleasant and disgusting problem to have. This occurs when you have ignored all the subtle warnings of an overflowing septic tank.

How much will the septic tank emptying cost?

We determine the cost of cleaning the septic tank based on your location and the amount of sludge to be emptied.
