Septic Pumping in Wilson
Providing Top-Quality Septic Maintenance and Cleaning Services Across Wilson County
If you have a septic tank, ensuring regular maintenance is key to the long-term
health of your system.
The No. 1 cause of early septic system failures is a lack of pumping and
When a septic tank system is not maintained, solids in the tank will build
up and flow into the drain field. This will clog the soils, prevent water
from absorbing, and clog up the system.
Regular maintenance fees every 3 to 5 years aren’t that expensive,
but you could easily spend tens of thousands digging up and replacing
a failed septic system. As the old saying goes, an ounce of prevention
is worth a pound of cure.
Systems do vary from one another due to tank size, wastewater volume being
produced, system design, and soil, but all require maintenance. The bottom
line is to prevent solids from being discharged beyond the septic tank
into the remaining components of the system.

How Often Should a Septic Tank Be Pumped?
Most tanks have space available for 3-5 years of accumulated sludge before
they stop functioning as designed. It is recommended to have scheduled
routine pumping before the limit dates to avoid leaving your septic tank
in an unsalvageable condition, leading to permanent damage and a costly repair.
Our pumping service includes:
- Extraction from both your septic tank's inlet and outlet sections, not
just one end.
- Cleaning the filter on the outlet side of the septic tank if one is present.
- Inspection of the distribution box if accessible.

How Do Septic Systems Work?
There are several different septic systems, each with its design. It consists
of these main parts: the septic tank, distribution box, and the
drain field. All water from your home goes through a single pipe below the ground
that flows to the septic tank. The septic tank is a buried, water-tight
container usually made of concrete, fiberglass, or polyethylene.
Its job is to hold the wastewater long enough to allow solids to settle
down to the bottom, forming sludge, during the oil and grease float to
the top as scum. As wastewater enters the septic tank, an equal amount
will exit the tank from the other side. As wastewater leaves the tank,
it travels to the distribution box and distributes evenly into the drain
field. Incoming water is then absorbed through the soil and cleaned by
