Importance of Septic Pumping

If your home has a septic system, Flanigan Septic offers efficient and affordable routine septic pumping to ensure the optimum operation of this essential home system. We also feature a comprehensive range of services for home septic systems. We can maintain, repair, and install new septic systems for our clients in the region.

Your septic system needs to be cleaned, or rather, “pumped” on a regular basis. Depending on the number of people in your home or how busy your household, you might need to have your tank pumped more often than not. We recommend pumping your system every three years. Some experts say some homes can wait as long as five years if the household is not busy, but it’s ideal to allow our techs to measure the amount of sludge that is accumulated between pumping so we can recommend an ideal schedule for you.

Without pumping, your septic system can become clogged with its accumulation of sludge. Once clogged, your system is vulnerable to further damage. You might even experience back up of sewage in your home or in your drain field, which can be an environmental nightmare.

How Does Sludge Accumulate in Your Septic Tank?

As the waste from your home travels from a pipe to your septic tank where it is processed, it becomes separated into two parts: water and sludge. The waste water travels from the tank to the leech field, also called the drain field, where it is released from pipes into the bacteria-rich soil. The bacteria further breaks down any waste in the water, which in effect cleanses the water before it can contaminate your environment or any nearby ground water.

The sludge essentially stays put in the septic tank. This is the material that the tank’s bacteria cannot break down and further or wash into the drain field. To prevent this sludge from heaping up and clogging your tank, it’s important to have a septic service like Flanigan Septic pump it out.
