Always Make Sure Your Septic Tank is Cleaned Out Through the Largest Available Access

Depending on the type of septic tank or system you have, your tank may have more than one access point. We always recommend pumping from the large access port on the center of your tank. This is usually covered by an 18-24-inch cement lid or manhole cover, often brought to grade with an extension. Cleaning out your tank from one of its inlet or outlet ports can cause damage to the tank’s baffles. It also doesn’t allow you to clean out the tank properly, so it’s important to make sure your tank is cleaned thoroughly from the main access. 

Never Go Longer Than Five Years Between Septic Tank Pump-Outs

Although we recommend having your tank pumped out every 2-4 years, depending on your tank size and the number of people in the house, you may be able to stretch the time between cleanouts before experiencing any problems. If you’re the kind who likes to wait, be careful because delaying your septic pumping too long can lead to backups or possible damage to your system. We recommend you never go longer than FIVE years between your septic tank cleanouts to make sure things are working properly and your tank is not accumulating heavy solids.

Make Sure Your Septic Tank is Visibly Marked or Easily Accessible

If you’re ready to schedule your septic cleanout, be sure your tank is easy to access. Keep your septic system clear of any trees or shrubs, and never park cars or heavy equipment on top of your septic system. If your manhole cover or access port is covered by your landscaping, be sure to mark it with a flag or a bucket, so your technician will be able to find the cleanout upon arrival. If your manhole cover is not up to grade, meaning it’s buried and hard to locate, we can install an extension or a “riser” to bring the lid up to ground level. Simply ask or contact us ahead of time to ask about installing the riser at the time of your septic pumping. Learn more about Septic Pumping Near Me.
