How Often Do You Need to Pump or Clean your Septic System?

How often do you need to pump your septic tank?

For most families, it is important to have a septic tank pumped around once every three to five years.  If you have more people using the septic system or if there is more water used at your home than in the typical household, you will need to have your septic pumped more frequently. You do not want to wait too long to pump your septic system, as waiting a long time can cause your system to become damaged.

Pumping your septic system is not something that you should do yourself- you need to get your system pumped by a professional company that knows how to pump it safely. When you contact Septic Medic, we can help you to determine if it is time to pump your septic and we can take care of the pumping process for you.  Give us a call to schedule the clean-out of your septic system that is necessary to keep your system functioning and to keep your family healthy.

What Does Septic Maintenance Entail?

Having your septic system maintained regularly can save you money by helping you to identify and solve problems before they happen. Regular maintenance can also make your system last longer and can help to keep your family safer because you won’t need to worry about pollutants finding their way into water.

Septic maintenance involves doing many different things. One part of the maintenance process involves checking the levels of sludge that are within the septic system. This helps you to determine when the septic system needs to be pumped out.  Septic maintenance also involves looking for liquid waste that may be located on the surface of the ground, inspecting the lid of the septic system for cracks, and making sure baffles are intact and not damage.

These are just a few of the different things that Septic Medic can do as a part of your routine septic maintenance.  Call us today to schedule your maintenance and learn more.
