We often get asked questions about care and maintenance of septic systems.
The #1 question we get asked?
How often should a septic system be pumped out?
A good rule to follow is every three to five years or, if you can't remember when it was last pumped out, do it now!
Older and single compartment septic tanks should be serviced more often as they are smaller. Both sides of the tank (if two chambers) should be pumped out every service interval.
We also recommend using EcoEthic Septic System & Drain Treatment. Containing waste digesting microbes, it will only help to improve the function of your septic system. Carried by septic pumpers and plumbers since 2001, it is commercial strength and quality.
Either way, don't forget to have your septic pumped out!
