When do we need to get a pump out?
Why Get A Pump out?
The average family house hold of four will have a tank approximately 1000 Gallons in size. The tank is connected to a distribution box that disperses the fluids out to the septic field. What remains in the tank is the effluent or FOG layers (Fats, Oils, Grease). Naturally with use, over the years these layers will build up and eventually they will need to be cleaned out so not to clog the lines and potentially cause a back up. The industry standard recommends a pump out should happen every 5 to 7 years depending on use. Prolonged neglect could mean that wastes are getting into the septic field, killing the good bacteria that process the contaminants in the waste water.
