Tips About Septic Tank Pumping

Tips About Septic Tank Pumping

Is your home connected to a septic system instead of a municipal sewer line? If so, septic tank pumping is a necessity to keep the system operating smoothly and running at its peak. There’s a lot that goes into maintaining your system, so it’s sometimes easy to overlook important, time and money-saving steps. Here are three useful septic tank pumping tips to offset backup-related issues.

1. Schedule a Septic Tank Pumping Every 3-5 Years

How long has it been since your last septic tank pumping? If it’s been over five years, it’s probably time to make an appointment. Plan to have regular septic system inspections and pumping. As a rule of thumb, the tank should be pumped once every three to five years. If, however, there are a large number of household occupants constantly using running water, then you may need to schedule a pump more often.

2. Get to Know the Septic Tank Company Beforehand

As with any other home service, you should have a septic service companypre-selected. This will make scheduling an appointment faster and less of a hassle. It also ensures that you have contact information on hand in case there is an emergency and you need septic tank repair ASAP.

3. Know Where the Tank Is Located

If you didn’t own the property during the initial septic tank installation, then you might not know where your tank is located in the drain field. Make sure to determine the location if this is the case. You can probably save a little money if you can show the service contractor where the system is located, or at the least locate the riser.
