UNDERSTANDING SEPTIC TANK PUMPING
Septic tank pumping removes solids, sludge & waste from your septic system. Any home or business connected to a septic system will need the septic tank pumped. How often should a septic tank be pumped out depends on the size of your septic tank, it’s age and the daily amount of waste added to the septic system.
In general, adequately maintained systems should septic pumping performed every two or three years. Older septic systems and smaller septic systems may need more frequent septic pumping.
By law septic tank waste must be disposed at licensed waste collection locations. Only a licensed septic company or licensed plumbers that understand septic systems and have proper equipment should attempt to pump out a septic tank.

HOW SEPTIC SYSTEMS WORK & WHY HAVE ROUTINE SEPTIC TANK PUMPING
Septic tank systems are simple and have been used to separate waste solids from liquids for hundreds of years. All drains and toilets in a building flow to a single drain pipe, or main drain. The main drain exits the building and empties into a septic system buried somewhere on the property.
The septic system has two main parts – a septic tank and a drain field. The septic tank is a watertight box with an inlet and outlet pipe. The septic tank holds wastewater long enough for solids and liquids to separate into three primary layers
Top Layer – Solids Lighter Than Water (Grease & Oils) Float to The Top
Bottom Layer – Solids Heavier Than Water (Sludge & Scum) Settle AT the Bottom
Middle Layer – Partially Clarified Wastewater
The middle layer of partially clarified wastewater exits the septic tank and heads to a drain field. Drain fields are a series of perforated pipes, rocks, and sand allowing for the partially clarified wastewater filtering before it exits into the surrounding property.
The bottom layer of sludge and scum remain in septic tanks where naturally forming bacteria work to break down solids. Over time, sludge and scum that can’t break down builds up, fill the septic tank and creates the need of septic tank pumping.
