If you can’t remember the last time you had your septic tank pumped…most likely it has been too long!!
We recommend having your septic tank pumped every 2-3 years, more so now with people spending more time at home. The pumping frequency depends on the size of your tank and number of people living in your house.
How do you know if your tank needs pumped?
Call us if you notice any of the following…
- Waste water backing up into your household drains
- Bright green, spongy grass on the drainfield, even during dry weather
- Pooling water or muddy soil around your septic system or in your basement
- A strong odor around the septic tank and drainfield
On average pumping your septic tank costs between $300-400…a flooded basement can be in the $1,000’s and replacing a failed system can be in the $10,000’s. Pumping your septic tank should be as routine as changing the oil in your car.
With the holidays around the corner…add SEPTIC PUMPING to your to-do list.
