Septic Tank Pump Outs

Keep septic tanks functioning properly by pumping them out regularly. Scheduling this critical maintenance task relieves homeowners from these unpleasant symptoms of home sewage overflow:

  • The smell of sewage in the yard
  • Swampy areas over the drain field
  • Bright green, healthy grass over the drain field
  • Wastewater backing up into the house
  • Lowest drains in the house become slower

These unpleasant events may be a first time experience, and many times homeowners don’t know what is causing them. In other cases, homeowners just lost track of their last Septic Tank Pump Out. These experiences require an emergency call to a plumber for relief. Once you and your family have been inconvenienced, you will better understand the value of regular pumping. But why wait for these to happen. Call us now for a scheduled Septic Tank Pump Out.

How Do Septic Tanks Work?

Your septic tank is a large underground concrete or iron tank that can hold hundreds of gallons of wastewater. Standard sizes of Septic tanks are 1,000 gallons, 1,200 gallons, 1,500 gallons, and more depending on the home’s size. The main plumbing line connects the septic tank to the house. All wastewater in the home, which drains from sinks, toilets, showers, and bathtubs, feeds into the septic tank via this line.

When the wastewater enters the septic tank, it naturally separates into three layers. The waste solids are called sludge the settle to the bottom, the water stays in the middle layer, while oils and fats make the top layer. Natural bacteria live in the tank and helps to break down the sludge solids, turning it into a liquid.

As the tank becomes full, the wastewater flows through a pipe at the top into a drain field. The drain field is full of stones that filter the wastewater through the soil. This filtration cleans the water preventing contamination of groundwater in the area.

How We Pump Out

What Happens When when we pump out your Septic Tank?

As sludge builds up over time, it has settled in the bottom of the tank. Even though bacteria helps control the amount of sludge in the tank’s bottom, sometimes the bacteria can’t break down sludge fast enough to eliminate it. When the tank is pumped, the sludge is removed, and the tank is emptied.

What happens in your septic tank if it is not pumped out?

If the tank is not pumped, its holding capacity will be diminished with the solids building up in the tank. Eventually, the solids will reach the pipe that feeds into the drain field, causing a clog. When the drain field pipe becomes clogged, you will experience:

  • The smell of sewage in the yard
  • Swampy areas over the drain field
  • Bright green, healthy grass over the drain field
  • Wastewater backing up into the house
  • Lowest drains in the house become slower

We help homeowners decide when their tank needs to be pumped and what their pumping schedule should be. We can answer your questions about your septic tank to help you keep it in proper working condition. To find out more, contact us today.

Septic Tank Maintenance

How Often is a Septic Tank pump out needed?

The need for a septic tank pump-out varies between 3-5 years, depending on the amount of wastewater produced by the septic tank’s household and size. Another variable is the age of the drain field as they lose efficiency with age.

Another factor in septic tank pump-out frequency is the size of the septic tank. A septic tank has to be adequately sized for the number of people living on the property. If a six-member family moves into a home built for a four-member family, the septic tank will likely need pumping more often.

A 1,000-gallon septic tank should be adequate for a home with up to three bedrooms. The same house with a 750-gallon tank may produce too much wastewater for the tank’s size. In this case, the tank would require frequent pumping.

Septic Tank pump out, moving into a new home?

Part of a home inspection should include the plumbing system. Even so, the investigation may not have included the septic system. It is always smart to start your new homeownership knowing your septic tank is clean.
