Septic tank pumping is every 3-5 years, but should be inspected regularly.

However, certain factors can affect the frequency of the pumping schedule. Just a few things that can affect septic tank pumping needs:

  • Surges in water use- running waste water, additional guest
  • Garbage disposal use
  • Water softener and water condition
  • High volume laundry use
  • Septic tank size

The household’s usage, the size of the tank, the weather, and the age of the system can all alter the ideal pumping schedule.

Drain Cleaners

When a drain or pipe is clogged, a homeowner might be tempted to use a chemical drain cleaner. However, even the chemical drain cleaners that claim to be septic-safe can damage the septic tank.

The chemicals in the drain cleaner can interfere with the bacteria balance in the tank, leaving the septic tank unable to break down the solid components in the tank. When these parts can’t be broken down, they can leak. So, it’s best to contact professionals for septic tank pumping in Ocala, FL.
