What is Septic Tank Pumping?

To understand what Septic Tank Pumping is, we will tell you what a septic tank is and what happens in it.

A septic tank is an underground installation facility that serves to treat the wastewater coming from your home. It is made of concrete, fiberglass, or plastic.

When wastewater leaves your home, its first stop is the septic tank. There the water purification begins. In the septic tank, wastewater forms three main layers – the scum, the effluent, and the sludge.

The top layer, the scum, consists of fats, oils, and lighter solids. The middle layer, the effluent, is a liquid, which will be directed to the drain field after undergoing the necessary treatment in the septic tank. At the bottom is the last layer, the so-called sludge, which consists of all hard particles.

When you consume water in your home, it is constantly directed to the septic tank. It means that the facility continuously performs the necessary processes to treat wastewater.

In this way, more and more liquid and solid particles accumulate over time, making it difficult for the entire septic system to work. In these cases, various types of Septic System Services are performed, including Septic Tank Pumping.

Septic Tank Pumping is a process that removes fluid and some floating solids. It is one of the essential procedures when it comes to septic system maintenance. The pumping should be done regularly to ensure the proper operation of the entire septic system and protect you from serious problems.


What does the service include?

Before we start pumping your septic tank, we will first do an inspection. It is one of the main steps in septic system maintenance. During the inspection, our certified inspectors and technicians will be able to perform an analysis and test of your septic system. In this way, they will determine its condition and will be able to tell what the frequency of Septic Tank Pumping should be.

Who does the service- experience, background, specialty?

Each septic tank has its characteristics that you need to pay attention to. Septic tanks may have one or two divisions and must process a large amount of water. That is why licensed technicians must perform the Septic Tank Pumping.

If you decide to pump the septic tank yourself, you risk damaging it and causing problems to harm the entire septic system. And repairing such issues can be costly. Therefore, we do not advise you to take action on your own.
