J & J Septic Services

Septic tank pumping is the process of removing sludge from the bottom of the septic tank. This needs to be done before the sludge builds up to a level where it blocks the outlet pipe through which liquids flow into the drain field.

We recommend septic tank pumping to be done every 3 to 5 years.

Septic tank pumping might also depend on:

  1. Size of household: Larger households, predictably, generate more waste, and thus fill up the septic tank faster.
  2. How much wastewater is generated: The sheer volume of wastewater flowing into the septic tank can affect how fast the septic tank fills up.
  3. The volume of solids in the wastewater: Households with many toilets, or who make frequent use of garbage disposals, tend to fill up the septic tank quicker.
  4. Septic tank size: Larger tanks can hold more solid sludge, and thus will need less frequent pumping.

There are also things that you can do to reduce the frequency of septic tank pumping in South Carolina:

Reduce water usage: By using high-efficiency plumping toilets and faucets, you will significantly reduce the amount of water that goes into the septic system.

Reduce solid wastes: Don’t flush anything down the drain other than toilet paper and avoid using a garbage disposer that puts organic food waste into the septic system.

Avoid putting chemicals down the drain: Chemicals can interfere with the bacteria action that breaks down solid waste so it’s best to avoid flushing them down the drain.
