Often, your septic system is out of sight, out of mind. This means that regular system maintenance, such as septic pumping can be forgotten about and lead to disasters down the road. Septic tanks operate at full capacity, the concern when a system hasn’t been pumped routinely, is that the solid waste that settles at the bottom of the tank, builds up overtime and can leech into your drain field, causing extensive damage.
Septic pumping frequency depends on a couple of factors. The biggest factor is how much use your system sees. This could be in the number of people living in the home, or it can be the soaps, wipes, or grease that is induced into the system. Keep in mind, ALL drains in your home lead to the septic system, so be mindful of what goes down your toilets and drains.
Inspection is required at least once every three years for all systems consisting solely of a septic tank and gravity drain field (SSAS). WAC 246-272A-0270
