Septic Tank PumpingSo, you’ve scheduled your routine septic tank pumping service. It’s nothing new, right? If you are like many home and business owners, you know this is a service that you need to schedule every three to five years, so you stick to the routine without asking questions. However, have you ever taken the time to ask your septic company what’s involved with septic tank pumping and what you should expect from your septic system as a whole? Here is a brief list of what you can expect from septic tank pumping at your home or business:

  1. Your septic tank holds wastewater that has been sent away from your home through your drain pipes. Once your septic tank receives this wastewater, it quickly divides into solids, water, and oils/fats.
  2. In order to prevent these solid layers from filling your tank over time (potentially causing backups and damage), septic tank pumping clears the sludge and scum from your tank that is unable to filter into your drain field.
  3. Your septic company should provide a detailed list of the actions they completed during your septic tank pumping, including how many gallons were removed, which compartments were pumped, the condition of your tank and the other parts, and the details of any work that needed to be done.

If you have questions about septic tank pumping and what you should expect from your servicing, our team at Southeastern Septic LLC will be happy to assist you. We offer residential and commercial septic services in Lakeland, and you can rely on us for high-quality services year after year.
