Why Should You Have Your Septic Tank Pumped?

Flanigan Septic offers efficient septic pumping service that you can depend on at any time. From scheduled pumping to emergency septic systems repairs, we offer a comprehensive listing of services designed to keep this important system of your home functioning optimally and reliably.

Septic tanks require periodic pumping–generally between three and five years. During their operation, septic tanks separate your home’s waste into waste two components: water and a solid byproduct we call sludge. The sludge is made up of solids that the bacteria in your tank cannot process any further. The sludge settles to the bottom of your septic tank and will stay there until it can be pumped out. The waste water then travels from your tank into the pipes of your drain field, also known as the leech field, where it is released into ground. The good bacteria in your yard’s soil “clean” the waste water until it doesn’t pose a threat to ground water or can contaminate the environment.

Dealing with the Sludge

Septic tank sludge cannot pass into the leech field. Instead, it remains in your septic tank indefinitely. The sludge pile will grow with use of your septic system until it causes a blockage in your system. For this reason, scheduling periodic pumping is essential. If you have a busy home, your septic system may need frequent pumping. Many septic system experts suggest pumping your system every three years, but our techs can help you decide on a time frame based on the level of sludge that accumulates in your tank between pumpings. By ridding your tank of unwanted sludge on a regular basis, you can make sure that system doesn’t get bogged down by sludge.
