What is septic pumping?
Septic pumping is the process of pumping out the sludge or solid waste from your septic tank by using a vacuum truck. We recommend that you have your septic tank pumped regularly so that it functions well. Most septic pumping companies perform a visual check for cracks, excessive sludge, water levels, and blocked pipes and then report their findings to you, that way you can decide on the best way forward if there is any problems with your septic tank. Septic pumping is important as it removes the sludge at the bottom of the tank before it builds up and blocks the outlet pipe. The outlet pipe allows the wastewater to flow out into the drain field.
How often should a septic tank be pumped?
This is something that gets asked very often, and something that we can help assist you with. Septic tanks need pumping regularly which is usually every two to five years, but this depends on the size of the septic tank and how many people live on the property. We recommend that the septic tank gets pumped every two to five years to avoid costly septic tank repairs and health concerns. Septic tanks that are undersized and that have very heavy use may require us to pumped them annually.
How is a septic tank pumped?
When you get your septic tank pumped, the pumper will arrive with a larger tanker truck with the vacuum equipment, and a technician will insert a large hose into the septic tank through the manhole. As the truck’s equipment sucks out the contents of the septic tank, a technician stirs the contents of the septic tank to break up the solids and mix them with the liquid material to make the pumping more efficient.
The septic tank pumping companies mentioned above offers affordable septic pumping, and they will always quote you beforehand once you make your appointment to get your tank pumped. The costs for pumping a septic tank depend on the size of the septic tank, so for larger septic tanks, they do charge more. The visual inspection of your septic tank is usually done at no charge to you while you get your tank pumped but if you do require a written inspection for a house inspection, there may be additional costs associated with that service.
