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!

Septic System Maintenance & Inspection

At John Nugent & Sons, we recommend having your septic system checked out at least once a year. If you wait until there’s a problem—like slow drains or dirty water backing up into your sinks and tubs—it may be too late! Septic tank cleaning 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.
