If you have a septic system you may often hear differing stories on how best to maintain the septic and prolong the life of the tank and drain field. Preventive maintenance is always your best option when it comes to avoiding emergency surcharges and/or premature failure of the septic system. Generally speaking, pumping the septic tank on a routine schedule is still much cheaper than city sewer fees, and vastly more affordable than a new septic system due to improper maintenance.
So, how often should you have your tank pumped? The short answer is every 2-5 years. This varies depending upon the size of the septic tank, the number of people in the home, and whether or not there is a garbage disposal present at home. Frequent usage of bleach or antibacterial agents (i.e. cleaner, hand soap) can also play a factor.
