Why Should You Pump Your Septic Tank?
How Long Has It Been?
Do you remember the last time your septic tank was pumped? If you don’t, it’s probably time to call Murray Hewitt Septic Tank Pumping. When functioning properly, your tank separates the wastewater into liquid effluent, a scum layer on top and a sludge layer on the bottom. Naturally occurring bacteria will break down the scum and sludge. While the liquid will drain out into your septic field, the solids that can’t be broken down need to be pumped out to ensure the proper function of your system.
How often should you pump? Find out. The frequency of septic tank pumping depends on the size of your tank and the number of people in your household.
