Frequently asked questions
How often should I pump my septic tank?
This depends on the number of people in your home. The more people you have, the more solids you'll have in your tank and the more often you will need to pump in order to protect your laterals. For example, a couple living on their own will only need to pump their tank every three years. A family of five will need to pump every year.
What products should I NOT put in my septic tank?
Some household items can be bad for septic tanks. This means you should not flush them down the toilet or run them down the drain. You should not put the following items in your septic tank:
How close does your truck have to get to my septic tank?
Our truck needs to be within 200 feet of the septic tank.
Does my septic tank need a cleanout or access hole to pump out of?
How do you find my septic tank?
Do I need to put any products in the tank when you're done?
No, you do not. The natural bacteria you create will activate the septic tank's bacteria again. Adding products will not hurt the tank, but studies have shown that they are not necessary.
How much does a new tank or laterals cost?
Why is my septic tank full?
Septic tanks will fill back up within a few days of pumping them, depending on the water usage in your house.
