Why Septic Tank Pumping Is Best Left to the Professionals

Septic service is a dirty job and it’s best left to professionals. The process involves removing waste sludge and hauling it away to be disposed of properly, which requires specialized equipment most homeowners don’t have lying around the house. A professional septic tank cleaner can also perform other important tasks like cleaning the walls of your septic system and inspecting the drain field to ensure everything is working as it should. Getting your septic tank pumped on a regular schedule can help reduce the amount of time you spend dealing with foul odors, wastewater back-up, or costly repairs to your septic system or leach field.

Septic systems provide an environmentally friendly sewage disposal option for homes or businesses where sewers are either unavailable or too expensive to install. The septic tank works by separating solid particles from your household waste, with the solids sinking to the bottom of the tank (sludge) and oils and fats floating to the top of the septic tank (scum).

The septic system then discharges the safer wastewater into the drain field, where it seeps slowly through the soil into a network of perforated pipes. It is then naturally purified by the soil and percolates into the groundwater supply, helping to sanitize the water in your home or business, and nourish your lawn and garden without the need for chemical fertilizers.

The tank size and the number of people in your household or business determine how often your septic system needs to be pumped. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends that your septic tank be pumped every 3 to 5 years, but the frequency depends on how many people live in your household and how much you use your plumbing.
