Tips to Reduce the Frequency At Which Your Septic System Will Need Pump-Out Service

If you rely on a septic system to treat the raw sewage and wastewater that exits your home via the drainpipes, proper care of your septic tank is critical to ensuring effective treatment of the effluent from the home. Septic tanks require periodic pump-outs to remove the solids that collect in the tank over time. So, why is it important to pump out the build-up? Well, because the accumulation of broken-down solids (sludge) will reduce the tank’s storage capacity, meaning that the tank will have less capacity to hold more sewage and wastewater coming from the home.
