Why Septic Tank Pumping Is Important

When you flush your toilet, draw water from the sink, take a shower, or run the dishwasher or washing machine, all that waste water (and anything else that’s in it) goes through the pipes to your septic tank. While in the septic tank, waste water separates into three levels:

  • The heavy, solid “sludge” layer sinks to the bottom
  • A layer of fats, oils, and grease, called the “scum” layer floats on top
  • Gray water, called “effluent,” sits in the middle

Depending on the size of your home, the number of people in your family, your plumbing system, and a number of other factors, you may need septic tank pumping every one to three years. Fortunately, septic tank pumping couldn’t be easier!

At John Nugent & Sons, we recommend having your septic system checked out once a year. If you wait until there’s a problem (your drains drain slowly or dirty water starts backing up into your sinks and tubs) it may be too late! Septic tank pumping is relatively inexpensive, but repairing a damaged septic system can cost thousands of dollars for the system alone, not to mention the cost of repairing your yard once it’s been torn up.

Our Septic Tank Pumping Services

We make septic tank pumping as easy for you as possible—all you need to do is call us! Even if you don’t know where your septic tank lid is in the backyard, we’ll find it, pump it out quickly and carefully, clean your filter, then set everything back the way it was. And unlike some other septic pumping companies in the area, we’ll make sure we get everything—the sludge, the scum, and the effluent—so you won’t need to call us again for a long time.
