Frequency of Septic Tank Pumping

Our customers frequently ask, “How often should I have my septic tank pumped?” Although there is not a "one-size-fits-all" answer to this, it is generally recommended that septic tanks be pumped every three to five years. There are several factors that can impact this recommended timeframe, including the number of people residing in your house, your daily water usage, and the size of your septic tank.

Getting your septic tank professionally pumped on a consistent, regular basis is important for the following reasons:
