Greensboro Septic Systems Unlimited


You need to have your septic tank pumped every 3 – 5 years on average, to remove the sludge build up which can cause damage and overflows.

Bigger households might need more frequent pumping, with single person households needing less frequent it in most cases. Allowing the sludge level to rise too high can cause a large number of knock-on problems which are serious and disruptive – don’t get caught out! Have someone visit your property to assess when it needs to be pumped.

Why does my tank need to be pumped?

It needs to be emptied from time to time. The frequency of pumping depends on the household size, and the size of the tank.

It must be to remove the sludge which settles naturally to the bottom of the tank. If this is left for too long it can overload and cause waste materials to escape the tank and enter the surrounding areas, and the home. Infrequent pumping can also damage the entire septic system, which is then expensive to repair.

How often does my tank need to be pumped?

This is a difficult question to answer, as it depends a lot on the usage. In general, homeowners need to have it every 3 to 5 years, but this can be much more frequent for large families.

Conversely, a household of one or two people may not need to have pumped as often. If you’re not sure whether or not your tank needs to be pumped, call us for advice. We can talk you through what you know of when it was last pumped, and try to help you establish a schedule that might fit your needs.
