Why You Should Get Your Septic Tank Pumped
April 24, 2014
All homes are either hooked up to a city sewer system or have a septic tank for simple disposal of wastewater and solids from sinks, tubs, the dishwasher and washing machine. Solids include dirt, food waste, oils, soaps, toilet tissue and more. About half of these solids decompose rather quickly and easily. The rest sits as sludge in the septic tank. Over time, the sludge builds up and has less room for wastewater. Problems ensue when wastewater and solids are forced out of the septic tank because it is full. Not having the septic tank pumped results in waste backup in household drains and toilets, wastewater seepage in the yard and terrible smells both inside the house and out.
Superior Septic Services recommends routine septic pumping in Marysville every one to three years depending on the size of the septic tank, how many people regularly use the plumbing in the house and whether there is a garbage disposal or not. Having and using a garbage disposal requires more frequent septic pumping due to excess food waste that takes longer to break down in the tank.
