Having a septic system on your property gives you access to modern plumbing, even when you do not have access to a sewer system. Septic systems are great because they can be used on any property so you can have all the conveniences of indoor plumbing. One thing that is different if you have a septic system vs. a sewer system is that a septic system does need routine maintenance. Most importantly, septic system pumping needs to be done on a regular basis to keep the septic tank from getting too full and causing problems. When the tank becomes too full it can be a disaster that requires a lot of clean-up.
It is usually recommended that septic system pumping be done every 2-5 years. But this timeframe depends on a lot of different factors. First, it depends on the size of your septic tank. The larger the tank, the less it will need to be pumped out. If your tank is smaller it will need to be pumped out more frequently. Another factor that determines how often your tank should be pumped out is the size of your household. If you live alone your tank will not fill up as fast. If you have a large family or many roommates, your tank will fill up much faster. A professional can help you know about how often your tank needs to be pumped and can take care of pumping it out for you.
