THE BASICS OF SEPTIC SYSTEMS

What is A Septic System?

Septic systems are onsite underground wastewater treatment systems, typically found in rural areas that are not connected to the centralized sewage system. The system is made up of two main parts, a septic tank and a drain field. The septic tank needs to be pumped frequently in order to remove the solid waste that forms at the bottom so that the system will function properly for years to come.  

How Often Should I Have My Septic Tank Pumped?

The time between septic pumps depends on a few different factors: the size of your system, the number of people living in your household, and the level of usage your septic system sees. The EPA recommends that a septic tank should be inspected at least every three years. As a general rule, you should plan to have your septic tank pumped every three to five years. If your system is undersized, you have a larger family, and your system generates more usage, we recommend having your septic system pumped sooner rather than later. Waiting too long to pump your septic tank could result in costly repairs and possibly require a full replacement of your septic system. 

There are a few warning signs to look out for in regards to the well-being of your septic system. If you start to notice puddles forming in your yard, a recent increase in the number of plumbing backups, a strong, foul odor, or unusually healthy grass around the area of your septic system, these factors could be indicating that your system is malfunctioning.
