Septic Pumping


Septic pumping service is a process where a professional removes the accumulated sludge and scum from a septic tank. Over time, solid waste and other materials settle at the bottom of the tank, forming sludge, while lighter materials like grease and oils float to the top, forming scum.

Septic pumping is necessary to prevent the tank from becoming too full, which can lead to blockages, backups, and potential damage to the septic tank and the drain field. The frequency at which septic pumping needs to be done depends on various factors, such as the size of the tank, the number of people using the system, and the amount of wastewater generated.

On average, septic pumping is recommended every 3 to 5 years. However, it’s important to note that this is just a general guideline, and the actual frequency may vary.
