Your septic system is a vital part of your home, and most of the time, it probably does its job without your ever having to think about it. As a homeowner in Skaneateles, it is important to recognize the benefits of regularly pumping and cleaning your septic tank. Occasionally, substances that your septic tank cannot easily filter out make their way into your septic tank. These substances can sink to the bottom of the tank and result in buildup that interferes with your septic tank’s filtering ability and can even create the risk of overflow.

Pumping and cleaning the tank from time to time to clear away that sludge can help you avoid these problems.

How Often Does Your Septic Tank Need Pumping?

Our recommendation is that you let Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Greater Syracuse pump and clean your septic tank at least every three to five years. Does anyone ever need septic tank pumping in Skaneateles more often? Possibly.

If you have had flooding, your septic system has damage, you have had chemicals introduced to the tank that may have killed the healthy bacteria in the system, or you are producing more waste than usual, you may want to opt for tank pumping and cleaning more often.

Problems That Can Occur If You Don't Pump Your Septic Tank When It's Full

Why is it so important to pump your septic tank? Septic tank overflow can be a very serious problem. Sewage will leak out onto your property and get into your groundwater. Bacteria, phosphorous and nitrogen from the contaminated water can create serious health hazards for you, your family, your pets, plants and possibly your neighbors as well. The odor can be intolerable, and cleaning up the mess will be time-consuming and expensive.
