Steps to Maintaining Your Septic System Properly

Maintenance of your septic system, (the tank and its components), includes:

  1. Having your tank pumped out on a regular basis.
  2. Having it inspected by a licensed septic tank contractor.

EPA Recommendation

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends that septic tanks be pumped out every 3 to 5 years, however your frequency may be greater than this depending on several factors.  The most important factors include, but are not limited to:

  • Household Water Usage
  • Size of Septic Tank
  • Age of System
  • Usage of System

Because each of these factors is variable and unique to each household, periodic inspections are recommended to determine the condition of the tank and its components.
