How Often Should a Septic Tank be Pumped?
Every home has a unique septic system. What works for your neighbor may not necessarily work for you. Determining how often your tank needs pumping service will be determined by several factors. These factors include the age of the septic system, the size and shape of the tank, the number of household occupants, the quantity of laundry done at the home and whether or not you have a garbage disposal. It is best to discuss these factors with your septic tank technician when determining the optimum frequency of septic pumping service for your septic system.
At SewerMan of Pamplin, VA we can create a septic pumping frequency table based on your specific needs, or if you prefer we can use an electronic device called a grease trap or septic tank monitor that can track down the level of scum, grease or sludge in a septic tank to determine the best schedule for septic pumping.
