3 Helpful Septic Tank Pumping Tips

snohomish-septicIf you have a septic tank on your property, you know how vitally important it is that you maintain it properly. One of the most important maintenance elements is regular septic tank pumping. There’s a lot to consider during this process, so here are three helpful tips to remember the next time you need to get your septic system pumped.

1. Septic Tank Pumping Should Occur Every 3-5 Years

As a general rule, you should have your septic tank pumped every three to five years. If you have a large number of people using your system, however, your tank may need to be pumped more frequently. Generally, the fewer people using the system, the slower your tank will fill up, and the longer you can wait between pumping.

2. Have a Certified Septic Pumper Pre-Selected

It’s best to have a septic pumper already selected and easy to call when it’s time to look at your system. Make sure that your pumper is certified. It’s also a good idea to ask lots of questions when selecting a new pumper; clarify price, what the visit includes, and what might cost extra.

3. Locate Your Septic Tank Prior to Your Pumping Appointment

Many pumpers will actually charge you extra to locate and uncover your septic tank system. You might be able to save some extra money by locating and exposing the tank lid yourself.
