Q & A

Questions and Answers

Question – How often should we pump out our septic tank?

Answer – Every 3 to 5 years your tank will need to be pumped, how often you pump your tank depends on how many people are living in your house.


Question – How do I measure the sludge in my tank?

Answer – You need to have your tank pumped when the sludge plus scum layer makes up 25% of the tank water depth.


Question – What is the difference between a clean out pipe and a septic lid?

Answer – The size usually gives away what type of pipe it is, however, a clean out is just a small pipe usually 4 inches where they could clean out your pipe line. A septic lid is usually larger by up to 24 inches and goes directly into your septic tank so we can put a hose into the tank to pump it out.


Question – Can I flush anything down my toilet into my septic system?

Answer – No, please do not dispose of feminine products, wipes, napkins, paper towels, tissues, or hair in the sink or toilet.


Question – Why does a septic system fail?

Answer – By design, most septic systems rely on anaerobic bacteria to form a thin bio-mat in the distribution component to clear the waste water. If a household overloads their system beyond the design capacity this will accelerate the growth of the bio-mat causing premature failure. Be sure to take good care of your septic system to prevent this.
