While every septic system is different, as part of your septic tank maintenance it is recommended that your septic tank be emptied every 2 – 5 years. When septic tank pumping is performed periodically by an experienced septic tank company, the risk of you having to deal with a sewer emergency or drain blockage decreases. A septic pump out only takes 20-60 minutes to empty (depending on the size of the tank) and often can spare you from having to spend more money and dealing with health issues in the future.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), there are four major factors that influence how often a septic tank needs to be pumped:
1) The number of people in your home,
2) The amount of wastewater produced,
3) The amount of solids in the wastewater (e.g. a garbage disposal increases the amount of solids in the wastewater)
4) The size of the septic tank
While the biological activity and wastewater treatment additives in your septic tank break down the smaller-sized waste, they aren’t powerful enough to break down the larger waste that will eventually fill your tank. Septic tank problems can lead to serious health and safety issues for you, your family, and potentially your entire neighborhood. That is why it is necessary to remove the build up of solid waste in your septic tank by having it pumped every 2-5 years.
