Septic Pump Out


A septic service specialist should inspect the average homeowner septic system at least once every three years. Septic tanks in homes are usually pumped every three to five years. Electrical float switches, pumps, and mechanical components in alternative systems should be tested frequently, at least once a year.

The frequency of septic pumping is influenced by four primary factors:

  • Size of the family
  • The total amount of wastewater produced
  • Solids in wastewater volume
  • Size of a septic tank

A T-shaped outlet in your septic tank prevents sludge and scum from exiting the tank and migrating to the drain field. Your tank has to be pumped if the bottom of the scum layer is within six inches of the bottom of the outlet, or if the top of the sludge layer is within 12 inches of the outlet.
