Maintaining your septic system involves regularly pumping out the solids from your septic tank every 3 to 5 years. This is a crucial task to prevent clogging of your effluent filter and damage to your drain field. Allowing solids to accumulate in the tank can ultimately lead to the destruction of your septic system. By regularly removing these solids through pumping, you can help ensure the overall health and functioning of your system.

If you're experiencing a septic system emergency, your toilets are backed up, slow flushing, or slow drains, it could be that your septic system is clogged. We can unclog most septic problems if they are occurring somewhere between your home and the septic tank.

When Should You Pump Your Septic Tank In Tonkawa Oklahoma?

This is a common question that we often receive. As a general guideline, it is recommended to pump your septic tank every 3 to 5 years. However, the frequency of pumping may vary depending on the size of your household and the amount of wastewater produced. Our technician who performs the pumping can assess the conditions of your tank and provide a more accurate recommendation for the appropriate pumping interval.

If you wait too long and your septic system fails, you could be facing a very costly repair bill or even having to replace your entire septic drain field. To avoid this, it's best to have a regular maintenance schedule for your septic tank,  The most important routine maintenance task you can complete is to regularly pump out the solids from your system.

Please keep in mind that the every 3 to 5 year rule is just a guideline, there are some systems that should be pumped out yearly such as commercial systems, and other systems that are beginning to fail that may need more regular pump-outs too.

After inspecting your system and pumping out the tank we'll be able to offer you a more accurate pumping interval.

Why Should You Pump Your Septic Tank?

Your septic tank is an important part of your home's wastewater treatment system. It is a large underground tank that stores the sewage and wastewater from your home until it can be treated and disposed of through your dispersal field or septic drain field.

Over time, the solid sewage (The #2) in your septic tank starts to break down and decompose. This process creates sludge, which accumulates in the bottom of your septic tank. If this sludge is not removed regularly, it can build up to a level that begins to clog your septic system, reducing it's efficiency, and eventually causing a failure.

Pumping your septic tank removes this sludge and helps keep your septic system working properly. It is an important part of septic system maintenance and should be done every 3 to 5 years, depending on the size of your septic tank and the number of people in your household.

If it is time for you to have your septic tank pumped out, or if you have any questions about your septic system, do not hesitate to contact us. We offer septic tank pumping services in Tonkawa, Oklahoma and would be happy to assist you.
