IMPORTANCE OF SEPTIC CLEANING
Frequent pumping is vital to sustain a working septic system. Although there is no hard rule to avoid sludge build up, we can tell you that regular servicing will keep sludge at the bare minimum level. This will also reduce the need for expensive septic tank repairs.
Imagine the backed-up sludge, potential busted pipes, and seeping raw sewage into your water lines. Those scenarios are all possible if you avoid pumping the septic tank at least every few years.
Property owners inadvertently put excess amounts of paper and other objects inside toilets, which can back up pipes or even cause sewer lines to burst. Especially if you are still using clay tile or Orangeburg pipe.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD A SEPTIC TANK BE PUMPED?
An average-sized septic system should be checked at least every 3 years by a professional. Although, it certainly would not hurt to have the tank inspected yearly, since septic inspection costs are relatively low.
Septic tank units are typically pumped every 3 to 5 years. Nonetheless, the pumping schedule will depend on where you live, if you have tree root networks running alongside your pipes, or have neighbors with septic issues.
Your property size, approximate amount of wastewater generated, and the perceived volume of solids inside the system are also factors that determine the frequency in which you should seek a septic inspection. If you are unsure whether your septic tank is a candidate for an inspection, call us today and we will ask several questions to help you make that determination.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PUMPING AND CLEANING
Most septic service providers can eliminate sludge from tanks with a vacuum truck. However, the thoroughness of the job will depend on whether the tank is pumped or cleaned.
By inserting a long vacuum hose into your septic tank and only extracting the liquids, you are receiving a pumping service. This is common for properties where no massive sludge deposits have built up or fewer people use the lavatory.
Another way septic service providers remedy blockages is by removing all the liquids and solids that are inside the tank, this procedure is known as cleaning. Septic tank cleaning is far more effective and necessary if you have not pumped the system for many years.
