Septic/Sanitary Pumping

Components of a Conventional Septic System
A pipe connects all of your household waste to your septic tank. The Septic Tank separates solid and liquid wastes. Wastewater flows from the septic tank through the distribution box to the leaching area.

Pump Regularly - Help prevent solids from escaping into the drainfield and clogging pores. Do you have a high water table. Received a lot of rain. Other clues you need septic pumping/inspection:
  1. Backups when you do laundry, take showers or flush the toilet?
  2. Do you have sewage smells around your system or inside your home?
  3. If you look around your septic area is there muddy soil or even pools of wastewater?
Just because you haven’t had any problems with your septic system that doesn’t mean you don’t need to pump out your tank.

This false sense of security can cause serious and at times costly consequences. When sludge gets too thick, your sewer has less time to settle properly before leaving the tank. The higher the level of sludge, the more solid waste can get into the soil absorption system. This can cause backing up or wastewater bubbling to the top.
