Why Does Your Septic Tank Need Pumping?

Flanigan Septic provides efficient septic tank pumping services that you can rely on any time of the year. From routine, scheduled pumping to emergency septic tank repairs, we offer a comprehensive menu of service offerings designed to keep this essential system of your home operating smoothly.

All septic tanks require the maintenance task known as pumping. Septic tanks are designed to separate the waste from your home into two components: water and sludge. The sludge is made up of the solids that the bacteria in your tank cannot break down. The sludge settles to the bottom of the tank and will remain there until it is removed. The water continues on its journey from your tank out into the pipes of your drain field where it is released into the soil. Bacteria in the soil further “clean” the waste water until it poses no threat to the environment or ground water.

What Happens to the Sludge?

The sludge cannot pass out into the drain field so it simply remains in the septic tank. This pile of sludge gets larger and larger until it can effectively cause a blockage in your system. This is why scheduling periodic pumping is so important. If you have a busy household, your system might require more frequent pumping. You can call Flanigan Septic and we can recommend a pumping schedule based on the number of people in your household. Most experts recommend pumping your system every three years. By ridding your septic tank of the sludge on a periodic basis, you can ensure that your system won’t experience a clog and will function optimally year after year.
