Septic Tank Cleaning / Pumping
Septic Tank Pumping on a regular schedule will improve your system’s efficiency and keep it running smoothly. But using a quick “get in and get out” Septic Tank Pumping service could spell costly trouble down the road top

Your Septic Tank should be pumped every 3 to 5 years depending on household size and usage. Regular Septic System pumping of the Septic Tank will reduce accumulation of scum layer in the Septic Tank. The scum layer (shown in diagram below) should never reach 24 inches thick, if the material reaches 24 inches and beyond in depth there is a risk that material will flow into the outlet pipe and into the drain field, causing drain field failure. top

In a Pressure Distribution Septic System, the excess material can travel into the pump tank causing, the effluent (sewage) Pump to be damaged or failure and material being pumped out to the drain field laterals essentially causing Septic system (Drain field) failure. top

When the Scum Layer in the tank reaches more than 24 inches in the tank, not only do you risk damaging the Drain field but excess material charges may apply to the cost of pumping the septic tank. Material over 24″ is considered excess & extra costs are incurred to dispose of the excess waste, more gallonage taken onto the pump truck, extra labor & time than would be normally on a tank that has been pumped every 3 to 5 years. top

Barnhill’s Septic Tank Service can locate and dig the tank lids for you if you prefer not to or you do not know where the lids are located. top
