Septic pumping is the most important aspect of maintaining your septic tank. Most homes need to have their septic tank pumped every three to five years, depending on the number of people who live in the home, daily water usage, the size of the tank, etc.
Since you don’t have to have septic pumping done very often, it may slip your mind, and you may even keep pushing your appointment further into the future. Although it’s okay to go a little bit longer between necessary pumping appointments, you don’t want to wait too long to get your tank pumped. Here’s why:
- If your septic tank needs to be pumped, it’s running out of room for additional wastewater. Not getting pumping done in time puts your septic system at risk of a serious backup.
- Your septic tank can only hold so much wastewater at any given time. If you go too long between pumping appointments, you could end up with leaks from your septic tank.
- A septic tank that’s too full can impact the rest of your septic system. For example, the pipes in your home and your drain field could be affected when your septic tank needs to be pumped.
