Why Should You Prioritize Septic Plumbing?

Septic pumping is an essential part of maintaining your septic system. You will need to regularly pump your tank to proactively avoid chronic clogs, wastewater backups, and other serious issues. Regularly pumping your septic tank can also extend the longevity and functionality of your system. 

Solid wastes, grease, and soap residue tend to naturally accumulate on the bottom and sides of your septic tank over time. Left unaddressed, these materials will harden and may become challenging to remove. They will then start to negatively impact the capacity of your system and trigger other troublesome side effects, including slow draining sinks and plumbing problems. Your tank may even overflow if nothing is done to ameliorate the situation.

Additionally, your septic system should in most cases be fairly silent or only emit a light hum. You should schedule pumping as soon as possible if you notice strange or worrying sounds coming from your tank. Gurgling, trickling, or buzzing sounds may signal the need for immediate pumping. 

The septic pumping process removes the hardened elements from your tank and can help restore lost capacity. Standard-sized septic tanks should be routinely pumped every three to five years, even if you do not detect any warning signs or problems. If you have an especially large septic tank, you may need to have it pumped every one to three years. 

Our services include a full assessment of the health and functionality of your septic tank. We can recommend the appropriate pumping schedule once we have assessed your system.
