Septic tank pump out
Have you ever wondered how septic tanks work when they are full? If you have, I’m sure you found the answer right away: they keep doing their job, but not as well as they should.
There’s no way a septic tank will work well without being at its 100% or at least, around 60-50%. If you have heard people saying, “My septic tank works well even though I haven’t pumped it for five or six years”, that’s a total lie.
Most people who say and believe that’s possible, haven’t noticed the signs their tanks are giving them, which represent how much their septic tanks need to be pumped out.
If you are planning or need to install a septic tank for whatever reason you may have, make sure that after the installation you take good care of it, and with this I mean, maintain it properly.
The maintenance of a septic tank involves pumping, which needs to be done every three or four years. As you can see, it isn’t too often and you can even forget about it, but don’t do it, it’s important.
When a septic tank has accumulated too many solids and it begins to reach its storage capacity, obviously it won’t treat your water properly because there’s almost no space in the tank. Therefore, the septic tank requires pump-outs when this happens.
How often does it need it? Every three or four years is an average, your tank could need it sooner or even later. Therefore, to make it more accurate, you should pump your septic tank when it has accumulated between 30 and 50% of the total capacity. If you wait until it accumulates around 60 or 80%, you will expose yourself to waterborne diseases since it won’t treat the wastewater properly and a full tank can also damage your property and the tank itself, and repairing both things is very expensive.
