SEPTIC TANK CLEANING
We clean out both sides of the septic tank. Our trucks have high volume vacuum pumps so we can do a thorough job cleaning both sides. It’s recommended to have a garden hose available so we can wash down your pump and water side of the tank as well. We are very knowledgeable about septic systems and strive to do the best job possible. We always respect your property, so you can rest easy knowing we will take great care on the job.
Tank cleaning is usually done from April to October. Unless there are problems with your septic system it is not advised to pump it out in the winter due to the possibility of it freezing. Liquid waste removal must be completed while temperatures are within an acceptable range to prevent freeze up.
The recommended tank pumping interval on a 750-gallon tank is as follows:
- 5-6 Occupants: Once a year
- 3-4 Occupants: Once every 2 years
- 1-2 Occupants: Once every 3 years
Pumping the tank more often than is required is much better than leaving it to the last minute. Properly maintained systems last longer and septic systems are very expensive to fix or replace.
