If you have read through our septic repair services page you may think that we are against septic pumping. We are going to try and clear the air because evidently, that is not true. We believe that septic pumping can be a very useful tool to prevent major septic damages. That being said in order for it to be a good tool it has to be applied at the perfect time. The perfect time is not going to be when you have a major problem on your hands. No worries though we can help you determine what the best course of action is at any given time!
We know that a lot of times people are going to cringe at this because you are not going to want to keep track of the wastes that you are generating. If you have a summer house or you are going to get more people coming in at any given time than what you are used to it may be a good idea to have your septic system pumped. Especially if we are talking about an older system that is still in use. This will allow the excess amount of wastes that will be generated to settle in the tank without any trouble!
Inspections That Lead To Pumping
If you are experiencing any type of problems with your toilet, for example, you should not be so quick to go ahead and pump the system. As we have explained in other areas of the site we don’t doubt that pumping the system may allow it to continue to work normally at least for a couple of days. However, if what you have is some form of leak or issue with the tank you are going be back to square one within a short period of time. If we inspect the system and then determine that it is a good idea to pump it we will do so.
How Often Should I Pump The System?
In a normal system that is working properly the average time that should pass between system pumps is around 3 years. A lot of times older systems may require a lot more frequent pumping. There are also these specific situations that we have talked about. If you know that you are going to overuse the system or you have overused the system getting it pumped can be a great idea.
