Septic pumping is an important maintenance task that should be performed regularly to keep your septic system running smoothly.

he purpose of septic pumping is to remove the solids that have accumulated in your tank over time. If left unattended, these solids can clog the system and cause problems with your plumbing. To ensure that your septic system remains in good condition, you should prepare for your septic pumping appointment.

Locate Your Tank

  • The first step in preparing for your septic pumping appointment is to locate your tank.
  • If you don't know where your tank is located, let us know and we have location equipment that can be used for an additional fee.

Clear the Area

  • Once you have located your tank, you need to clear the area around it.
  • Remove any plants, debris, or other obstacles that may hinder the technician's access to the tank.
  • This will ensure that the technician can get to the tank and perform the pumping.

Provide Access

  • Make sure that the technician has easy access to your property.
  • If you have a gate, make sure that it is unlocked. If you have dogs, make sure that they are secured so that they do not interfere with the technician's work or get close to the open septic tank hole.

Keep Records

  • It is important to keep records of your septic pumping appointments.
  • Keep a log of when your tank was last pumped and when it will need to be pumped again.
  • This will help you stay on top of your septic maintenance schedule and ensure that your system remains in good condition.
  • In addition, we will send you a pumping reminder three years from the date we pumped your tank.

Be Prepared to Ask Questions

  • When the septic pumping technician arrives, be prepared to ask questions.
  • Ask your technician about the condition of your tank and whether there are any issues that need to be addressed.
  • You can also ask for advice on how to maintain your system between appointments.
