Pumping Determinants

The determinants for septic tank pumping are the scum and sludge layers in the tank. We check these layers during an inspection. The thickness of these layers depends on how your system was installed and used. The main installation factor is the size of the tank in relation to the size of the property. A system that is too small for the house will need to be pumped more often. This is usually not an issue since the size of the property is considered when a new system in installed. Most often, the two things that influence the frequency of septic tank pumping are the number of people in the house and how the system is used. The more people that use the system means more waste water generated. This is not something you can do anything about, but it is important to keep in mind when considering how to schedule septic system maintenance.
