Septic Tanks represent a large investment for any homeowner and regular maintenance is required to keep your system in good repair. There are several factors to keep in mind regarding how often you will need to have your septic tanked pumped.

These include

  • How many people live in the house
  • Size of your septic tank system
  • Volume of the waste water and solids
  • Size of your septic tank

The function of a septic tank is to remove solids from wastewater. Once separation occurs, water is disposed of by the system. During this process solids, also referred to as sludge will accumulate in the septic tank. While most of the solids decompose, a large portion of solid waste will build up over time.

For your septic tank to continue to operate properly, sludge must be removed from the system for the separation process to occur effectively. If the homeowner fails to conduct have the septic tank pumped on a regular basis , the solids may eventually flow out of your septic tank causing the system to overflow or fail.

You should have your St Augustine septic tank pumped out every three to five years depending on usage. It is also recommended to have your system inspected every three years.

It is recommended you have your tank pumped every to 5 years, and you should have your septic tank inspected at least every 3 years.
