What Does Residential Septic Tank Pumping Involve?

In order to do a septic tank pump out, the tank must be located and the hatch has to be excavated. If you’ve recently purchased your Atlanta home and don’t know where the opening to your tank is, the technicians can locate it for you. After this, the septic system pumping occurs. As part of comprehensive septic pumping services, the tank will also be cleaned out with water and a technician will inspect it. Focus is placed on the baffles, which help direct the flow of material inside the tank, as well as any pipes and lines inside. The technician will also check for damage due to age, cracks, and destruction caused by root systems. Lastly, the area is closed up and the earth is placed back on top.

Why is it Important to Pump a Septic Tank?

Your system is made up of several parts, but the real work is done by the tank. All of the wastewater from the home is delivered to it through the “inlet,” and the “baffles” help make sure that it separates properly. Lightweight things, like toilet paper, grease, and oil float to the top and form a layer called “scum.” The heavier waste sinks to the bottom of the tank and is referred to as “sludge.” The liquid in the middle, “effluent,” can safely leave the tank through the outlet. It usually flows into a leach field, or an area filled with rocks and gravel, which lets the water soak back into the earth where any matter that remains in it is naturally handled by bacteria in the soil.

Over time, the sludge builds up and septic pumping must be done to remove it. If it remains and is allowed to continue to grow, it tends to try to exit via the outlet and it clogs up the pipes and the leach field. When new waste attempts to enter the tank, it has nowhere to go, and it flows back into the drains of the home.

How Often is Residential Septic Tank Pumping Necessary?

You want to avoid a backup by any means necessary. If it builds up to the point where you have a backup, cleaning all the pipes and repairing the damage can be expensive. Depending on how many people live in your home and how big the tank is, every 3-5 years is usually a good estimate. If you have a garbage disposal, a small tank, or a large family, you’ll want to do it more often.

Does Atlanta Septic Tank Pros Handle Cesspool Pumping, Too?

Yes! The technicians are all well-versed at all types of pumping and sewer systems. They can handle cesspool pumping as well.

Very Affordable

They easily figured out what's wrong and they told me they could fix it right away. They were so friendly and were able to keep me calm as they resolved this issue. I will be calling them again in the next couple of years to have it maintained. I really felt that this was one of my best decisions. I am thankful.
