We recommend that you pump your Septic Tank about every 3-5 years depending on the size of your tank and how many people are in the home.
There are a few different things you can do to extend the longevity of your septic system. We recommend putting enzymes in your septic tank. Enzymes are a healthy bacteria that help break down the solids in your tank and keep your tank healthy. Another thing you can do to keep your tank healthy is being mindful of what you put in it. Things like sanitary products, hygiene/baby wipes, condoms, dye, drain cleaning products and paper products other then toilet paper are NOT septic safe. We recommend using non chlorine bleach products because it won't kill the healthy bacteria your septic tank needs to function properly. Don't forget to check your toilet paper to make sure it is septic safe - flushable does not always mean septic safe!
**NOT ALL SEPTIC TANKS LOOK LIKE THIS OR HAVE RISERS**
Normal septic tank lids (Pictured Left) are buried anywhere from 1-3 feet underground. The lids will have to be dug up every time you need to pump your septic tank. Septic tank lids come in different sizes - square, round, and coffin style lids are the most common. All septic tanks have two lids. Both lids will need to be dug up and exposed in order to pump your tank.
Knowing where your septic tank is located is the first step in the process in getting it pumped. If you don't know where your septic tank is you have two options - call the county you live in and ask them for a plot map or you can call us and we can come locate it for you. Pictured Right is an example of what it should look like when you dig up your lids for your tank. To ensure that the lids are exposed properly, you should have at least an extra foot dug around the lids for easier access.
Risers (Pictured Left) are big green lids that you can add onto your septic tank lid to prevent future digging. The lids sit on the surface flush with the grass and dirt in your yard instead of underground.
