Why Septic Tank Pumping Is Important

A1 Septic Service on an appropriate schedule ensures that solid waste and scum are removed from the system, preventing blockages in the absorption field and keeping your septic system functioning properly. It also prevents costly system replacement and provides peace of mind to homeowners.

When you hire a professional company to clean your septic tank, they will arrive on site equipped with tools such as gully suckers. Using these tools allows for faster cleaning and ensures that the job is done correctly.

Benefits of Professional Septic Tank Pumping

A professional company will also know how to properly measure your septic tank levels. Using a stick with a velcro strip at the end, they will gently lower the stick straight down into the septic tank, even through the thick sludge, until they feel it hit bottom. The sludge clings to the velcro and will provide an accurate measurement of the amount of sludge in your tank.

Besides being an essential part of routine maintenance, having your septic tank pumped regularly is beneficial to your home’s value. Potential buyers will be more likely to invest in a property with a documented history of regular septic tank pumping.

Although pumping your septic tank on an appropriate interval is important, don’t over do it! Having your septic tank pumped too frequently removes bacteria that breaks down the organic waste materials, and when that happens it takes much longer for the septic system to function properly. It can also damage the drain field and absorption system.
