Pumping your septic tank is the process of having a professional septic contractor pump your tank once it has been filled or mostly filled with waste. Pumping your tank is needed every few years or when you begin to notice your indoor systems backing up or draining slower than usual. We don’t recommend pumping the septic tank yourself and instead suggest enlisting the services of a professional to do it for you to avoid the mess that could potentially come with it.
Your septic system requires pumping as its needed by your family’s individual use. Most households only need their septic systems pumped every 2 – 3 years, while others may require it more depending on the size of their household or how often it’s used. We assist clients with scheduling regular pumping on an annual basis so that you never forget when your next septic pumping service is needed. If you aren’t sure when it’s needed, you can always find out by having a professional septic contractor inspect your system regularly.
Pumping your septic system is also needed to ensure your safety. If a septic system becomes overloaded or is never cleaned and pumped, it could result in illness and harmful toxins being released back into the water and sewage system of your home. Once returned to delicate places like your kitchen or bathroom, the toxins can result in unwanted illness, germs, and bacteria. This can also lead to pests, mold, foul odors, and other unwanted side effects as the result of unclean and un-pumped septic tank systems. Furthermore, septic systems that are not pumped can quickly become clogged, overflow, or cause damage to your lawn and surrounding areas, which can be hazardous and costly to clean up. Therefore, it’s recommended to stay on top of your septic pumping schedule to avoid potential safety hazards from disregarding the septic system.
The biggest concern when it comes to pumping a septic tank is your overall health. When a septic tank is not regularly pumped, it could result in backlogs of bacteria-ridden water and debris that lingers in your home and water systems. To avoid this, pumping your septic system ensures that all of the waste and debris is thoroughly cleared from the system and you’re left with clean and healthy water you can use. If septic systems are left un-pumped, they can easily spread germs and bacteria in ongoing usage of dirty or contaminated water.
