Is it Time to Have Your Septic Tank Pumped?

Like any container, fill it up enough and it will begin to overflow. When it comes to your septic tank, that’s something you don’t want to ever have happen. Regular tank pumping is an essential step that most homeowners don’t think about until it’s too late. At Metro Septic, we offer regularly scheduled pumping services on a schedule that fits your household and tank size.

Measuring Sludge Levels

Having your septic system inspected on an annual basis is a great start when it comes to knowing where your waste levels lay. Some homeowners prefer to invest in electronic monitors that can be attached to their septic system, allowing them to read the data related to if and when it’s time to have your tank pumped. If you have a small tank that needs to be pumped more frequently, this could be a convenient investment. Otherwise, larger tanks likely do not need to be electronically monitored (as long as they’re inspected routinely and drained when necessary.)

Does it Feel Like You’re Pumping Your Septic Too Often?

Here are a few tips to reduce your water waste:

  • Change water faucets and shower heads to low flow
  • Update toilets with low flow tanks
  • Use front loading washing machines or other washers that use lower water levels
  • Check for leaky plumbing that may be contributing to a constant water flow
