A septic tank is one of those things that may not be on your mind until you have a problem. While they are an efficient way to manage wastewater from your home, they do require routine maintenance to ensure they are functioning as they should be. Consider septic tank pumping from Curt & Jerry Sewer Service to ensure your tank is doing its very important job and can function efficiently for years to come. Let’s explore why you may need to have your septic tank pumped and what exactly that will accomplish.

Septic Tank Pumping

What Is the Purpose of a Septic Tank?

A septic tank has a crucial job, and a lot can be at stake if it stops doing that job. Basically, the purpose of your septic tank is to separate the waste from your household and keep everything flowing properly so that you don’t end up with a mess. If the septic tank becomes too full to do its job effectively, you could end up with clogs, slow drainage, or overflows. Once your tank reaches its capacity, you could very quickly have an unsanitary mess on your hands that may result in costly repairs and damage to your property.

When Do You Need to Have Your Septic Tank Pumped?

A septic tank should be pumped about every three to five years as part of routine maintenance to help prevent an unpleasant situation and ensure that it lasts for its full intended lifespan. If it’s been a while since you’ve had yours pumped, or you observe that your toilet is backing up, your pipes are making a gurgling sound, or you smell sewage in or around your home, it might be time to get it pumped. Our professionals are fully equipped to unclog any line blockages, pump everything out, and ensure your tanks are empty and working properly.
