Septic tanks are installed in about 1 in 4 homes in the U.S. They are a clean and cost effective way to get rid of waste waster. Managed properly septic tanks can give you many years of trouble free drainage of waste water. One important component of maintaining your system is regular septic tank pumping and inspection.
Having the septic tank inspected regularly will help you determine when pumping is necessary. Most septic tanks need to be inspected about once every 3 years. Some systems with mechanical components will need to be inspected more often. The system’s documentation will have a recommendation about the frequency of inspection.
Septic Tank Pumping – Many homeowners want to know how often they should have their septic system pumped. Various conditions affect when a septic tank will need to be pumped, so there is no set answer for everyone. There are, however, ways to estimate when a tank will need pumping and things you can do to extend the time before pumping is necessary.
There are ways to help estimate about when you should have your tank pumped. As an example: an average 4 bedroom house may have a 1200 to 1500 gallon tank and with a family of 4 should expect to have the tank pumped every 3 to 5 years of typical use.
