How often should a septic tank be pumped?

Metro PHA, recommends annual septic tank maintenance.  With routine maintenance sludge and scum levels can be checked routinely to ensure that everything is in working order.  Most septic tanks tend to need to be pumped between every 2 to 4 years, however, a well-maintained and managed septic tank can go 10 years or more between pumps.

When you have your septic tank periodically pumped, it will help you avoid potential costly repairs later on in the future.  Whenever you have septic issues it is critical that the problem be addressed immediately to prevent waste water from reaching the groundwater.

In order to prevent possible septic tank issues, Metro PHA recommends that you be careful with what you flush down your pipes.  Never flush anything other than human waste and toilet paper down the toilet.   Even flushable towelettes should not be flushed down the toilet at all.

Common Septic Tank Issues

One of the most common problems that arise with septic tanks involves the area where there is a deep pit filled with gravel that absorbs the waste and soaks into the ground.  Since these areas tend to fail over due time, it is imperative that you be aware of the possible signs that failure is eminent. These signs include foul odors coming from your drains as well as overflowing toilets.

Another issue that happens with septic tanks is sludge buildup. If sewage is backing up in the drains in your home, then this is a strong signal that the sludge levels in the septic tank need to be taken care of as soon as possible.  If you smell noxious sewer odors emanating from your drains, then get in touch with Metro Plumbing and schedule an appointment to have one of our professional septic tank experts assess the situation.

Annual Maintenance

Metro Plumbing, advises that you routinely have your septic tank inspected to ensure it works as intended and efficiently at that. Most septic system failures occur when there is lack of maintenance and failure to have the tank pumped when needed.

Septic tanks are specifically constructed to take care of waste solids, and other materials to create a layer of sludge at the bottom of the tank.  We remove this layer so that the waste solids will not clog up your disposal system and eventually cause the system to fail.  While Metro PHA has the tools and equipment in order to provide top notch maintenance, you can also do your part in order to have your septic system continuing operating at its best.

Chemicals such as detergent and bleach if flushed down the toilet can harm the bacteria in the system that is crucial in breaking up the waste material in your septic system.  So, never flush anything down your toilet other than human waste and toilet paper.
