How often should a septic tank be pumped?
Guidelines are in place however individual circumstances can vary greatly. Commercial septic systems depend solely on the type of business and traffic flow. For residential septic tanks and per the EPA, a septic tank should be pumped every 3 to 5 years on average.
At Loose Ends Repair & Septic Tank Pumping we recognize multiple factors that can determine how often. This includes the number of persons in your household, the size of your tank, and the condition of your system. We’ve seen tanks go more than a decade with no problems if there are only one or two people in the home.
On the other hand, if drain lines get clogged, you’ll need your septic tank pumped much sooner than 3 years. It’s important to have a septic inspection to ensure your septic system is performing as it should.
How long will a septic system last?
We install concrete and plastic septic tanks, but we recommend concrete for its durability. If you own a home and are unsure of the age of your system, a septic permit will be on file with the county if your home was built in the last 20 years or so. Just call or go online to request a copy. You won’t usually find a permit if the home is older and that’s perfectly ok. With a septic inspection from Loose Ends Repair & Septic Tank Pumping, we’ll locate and diagram your septic tank on your property with any modifications we make. A concrete septic tank can last more than 50 years but drain fields don’t typically last that long as they naturally fill with age, even the healthy ones. Your drain lines must be kept clean and draining properly to inhibit unnecessary biomass from forming and prematurely aging your drain field.
