Septic Pumping & Maintainance

Pumping & Maintenance

You pump out your septic tank to get rid of the solid sludge that accumulates at the bottom of the tank and the grease that accumulates as scum
floating near the top. Both sludge and grease can destroy the leaching field. How often to pump out depends on your tank size, family size, and how much of your wastewater is solid waste. Generally, septic tanks need to be pumped every 2-3 years
