Since septic tanks are out of sight and out of mind, it is easy for this most important system of the home to be neglected and even forgotten. Septic maintenance and regular pumping can extend the life of your septic system, protect water quality and also help protect public health. It is recommended that you pump your septic tank every 2-3 years, depending on the size of your household.  If using a garbage disposal, more frequent cleanings may be necessary.

Why Regular Septic Pumping?

Avoid system back-up and a failed system with regular septic pumping. Septic pumping removes the build-up of solids known as scum and sludge so that your entire system can continue to work properly.  With regular pumping your septic system could last up to 30 years; without maintenance of your system it could fail within 5 – 10 years.

Proper septic system maintenance should include pumping the tank on a regular basis. Regular pumping helps prevent solids from escaping into the drain field and clogging soil pores. The MassDEP recommends that systems be pumped at least once every 3 years for homes not having a garbage disposal. If the home’s system has a garbage disposal, it should be pumped every year.

tips to keep your septic system in tip top shape
