Great plumbing company. You can’t beat their prices, from snaking drains to pipe replacement. I used several other companies before I found them & paid double what they charge. Best company out here.

We read the reviews and after receiving a ridiculous quote for sewer replacement from a competitor, decided to get a quote from them. Not only were they more than 50% cheaper, but they were courteous, professional, and efficient.

The first plumber who came to see my drain backup was unable to fix it and recommended a very expensive solution. So I called Service Force for a second opinion. I am glad I did. Harold immediately diagnosed the issue and fixed the drain in less than 30 minutes.

Switched out my old leaking water heater. They were professional and great to deal with. They also really knew what they were doing so I was glad I hadn't gone to a big box store.

I switched to Service Force after a large chain company was a nightmare. Hendrick quoted me a much lower price for a way better job and a lot faster service. I would give them ten stars if I could.

A well-maintained septic system is essential for the smooth functioning of any home not connected to municipal sewer lines

One of the key aspects of septic system maintenance is regular pumping or cleaning. In this blog, we’ll explore why septic system pumping is crucial, how often it should be done, what the process entails, and why Service Force Plumbing is the go-to company for this service.

Why Septic System Pumping is Important

Regular pumping of your septic tank is vital for several reasons:

  • Prevents clogs and backups: Pumping removes solid waste and sludge from the tank, preventing clogs and potential backups in your home’s plumbing system.
  • Protects the drain field: Regular pumping ensures that the drain field is not overwhelmed with solid waste, which can lead to failure and costly repairs.
  • Maintains system efficiency: A clean septic tank operates more efficiently, effectively treating and disposing of wastewater.
  • Prolongs system lifespan: By keeping your septic tank clean and well-maintained, you can extend its lifespan and avoid expensive replacements.

How Often Should You Pump Your Septic Tank?

The recommended frequency of septic tank pumping varies based on factors such as tank size, household size, and usage patterns. Generally, it’s advisable to pump your tank every 3-5 years. However, homes with larger families or heavy water usage may require more frequent pumping. Regular inspections by a septic system professional can help determine the ideal pumping schedule for your specific situation.

The Septic System Pumping Process

The process of pumping your septic tank involves the following steps:

  1. Locating and uncovering the tank: The septic system professional will locate your tank, dig up the access covers, and remove them.
  2. Inspecting the tank: Before pumping, the technician will inspect the tank for any damage, leaks, or other issues that may require attention.
  3. Pumping the tank: Using a specialized vacuum truck, the technician will pump out the sludge, liquid, and solid waste from the tank.
  4. Cleaning and inspecting: After pumping, the tank will be cleaned and inspected for any signs of damage or wear.
  5. Covering the tank: Once the pumping and inspection are complete, the technician will replace the access covers and fill in the excavation.
