The average septic system lasts about 25 years, but properly installed and maintained ones can last up to 40 years, and sometimes even longer. Depending on the size of your household and the size of your septic tank, you should have your tank pumped every 3-5 years on average. Failing to pump the tank regularly can lead to the buildup of solids and sludge, which can clog the system.
