Salina Septic Tank Pumping Experts

One interesting fact about septic tank pumping is that the frequency at which you should pump your tank depends on various factors, such as the number of people living in your home, the size of your tank, and your water usage habits. Pumping is recommended at least every 3-5 years or when the solids in the tank reach 25-30% capacity. Typically, this is when the crust layer has reached six or more inches in thickness or the sludge layer has reached 12 or more inches in thickness. Some households may need to pump their tanks more frequently, mainly if they use a lot of water or have a smaller tank.

When those layers surpass those levels of thickness, your septic tank has entered the trouble zone. Monitoring your septic system’s performance and scheduling regular pumpings can help prevent issues and save you money on repairs in the long run.
