How It Works

Every three to five years, you need to order septic pump pumping and cleaning to maintain your septic tank and prevent breakdowns. Your septic tank professional will locate the septic tank and attach a hose from their truck to the tank.

During the pumping and cleaning process, all solids are removed from all three layers of the tank, including the sludge layer, the effluent layer, and the scum layer. The components of the tank are checked, and then the lid and sod are replaced, so your yard looks tidy again.
