Kind Words From Our Customers
Q. How often do you pump?
A. It depends on how the system is being used. If there is a large amount of content going down the drain, pump more often. When a minimal amount of content is introduced, pump less often. If a large amount of disinfectants or anti-bacterial agents are being introduced into the system than pump more often. Introducing disinfectants or anti-bacterial agents into the system could shorten the life expectancy of the septic system.
On average, we recommend to pump the tank out every 2 years for a family of 4 to 6. Every 3 years for a family of 2. Every 5 years for a part time or vacation home.
