Do I need to pump my tank?

A question often asked is whether or not a septic system needs to be pumped. The answer is yes.

After a few years, the solids that accumulate in the septic tank should be pumped out and disposed of at an approved location. If not removed, these solids will eventually overflow, accumulate in the drainfield, and clog the pores (openings) in the soil. This blockage severely damages the drainfield. The sewage effluent will then either back up into the house or flow out across the ground surface . If this happens, you may need to construct a new drainfield.
