Do you notice pooling water above your drainfield? Are liquids backing up through your plumbing? Are your sinks slow to drain? If you said “yes” to any one of these questions, it may be time to have your septic tank pumped.

A mind-boggling number of septic system owners believe that if they aren’t experiencing a problem with their septic system, then there’s no reason to have the tank pumped. There is simply no such thing as a maintenance-free septic system — they all require pumping and maintenance eventually. Although the question of whether to pump or not to pump is largely based on how much the system is used, most professional organizations state the average tank should be pumped every two to four years.
