Septic Tank Cleaning

Septic Tank Care
How do I maintain my septic system?

You should have your septic system assessed at least every 3 years and have your tank pumped every 3 to 5 years. A Qualified Person or certified septic system contractor can assess all parts of your septic system, and a certified pumping professional can assess the condition of your septic tank. Your service provider should inspect for leaks and look at the scum and sludge layers in your septic tank to determine if pumping is needed.

What Does an Inspection Include?

  • Locating the system
  • Uncovering access holes
  • Flushing toilets
  • Checking for signs of backup
  • Measuring scum and sludge layers
  • Identifying any leaks
  • Inspecting mechanical components
  • Pumping the tank if necessary
