Frequently Asked Questions about Septic Tanks

The frequency of septic tank pumping depends on factors such as the size of the tank, the number of occupants in the household, and their wastewater usage habits. As a general guideline, it’s recommended to have your septic tank pumped every 3 to 5 years. However, larger households or properties with heavy water usage may require more frequent pumping, while smaller households may be able to extend the interval between pumpings.

Several warning signs can indicate issues with your septic system, including slow draining sinks or toilets, gurgling noises from plumbing fixtures, foul odors around the septic tank or drain field, sewage backups in the house, or lush, overly green patches of grass above the drain field. If you notice any of these signs, it’s essential to contact our team for inspection and repair to prevent further damage to the system.

While there are various septic system additives on the market claiming to enhance bacterial activity, break down solids, or reduce odors, their effectiveness is often debated. In most cases, a properly maintained septic system does not require additives. In fact, using certain additives indiscriminately can disrupt the natural balance of bacteria in the tank and potentially harm the system. It’s best to consult with one of our team members  before using any additives and to focus on regular maintenance practices such as pumping, inspection, and proper waste disposal to ensure the health and longevity of your septic system.
