Pumping and cleaning

Regularly cleaning and pumping your home or business’s septic tank helps to prevent future malfunctions. Septic pumping and cleaning improves the efficiency of your entire system and ensures proper wastewater disposal. Economy Septic Tank Service recommends pumping and cleaning your septic tank at least once every three to five years, and at least once per year if there are more complicated or advanced components. 

Our certified septic system technicians arrive at your home or business with our branded trucks to perform septic tank cleaning and pumping services. We respect our clients and take great care of your home’s landscaping and outdoor furniture.

How Often Should a Septic Tank Be Pumped?

This question is a frequent topic of discussion with our clients. The answer is: it depends on the capacity of your tank and the volume of wastewater. If your home or business has a large capacity septic tank or includes advanced mechanical components, Economy Septic Tank Service recommends pumping your septic tank at least once per year. For smaller septic systems or with lower wastewater volumes, we recommend once every three to five years.

If you’re installing or replacing a septic tank at your home or business, call our team of professionals at Economy Septic Tank Service. Our team can help with engineering a custom septic system, and we provide septic tank installation services for two types of septic systems: conventional and alternative. During the consultation process, our team can recommend which type is best suited for your needs. 

We also provide drain field line installation for septic tank systems. This step may be  necessary for your septic system installation if you’re installing a brand new system or if your current drainage system isn’t working properly or has aged.

Conventional Septic System Icon

Conventional septic tank systems can be used in areas with clay or sandy soils. These septic systems are more affordable to operate; there is no chlorine to purchase or necessary pump replacements. Gravity carries the wastewater from the house into the septic tank and then the drainfield to dispose.

Alternative Septic Tank System Icon

Alternative septic tank systems are used when conventional systems can’t be installed due to the soil type or proximity to a wetland. Some examples of alternative systems include aerobic or low-pressure dose systems. Working with our certified septic system experts can help you to understand the components of our alternative systems.

New Field Line Icon

Field lines run from the septic tank to the drain field. They can get clogged or broken with time. We can replace your field lines to keep your septic system functioning. Some signs that you have a failing field line is if the drains are slow, there are odors in the drain field, or there are wet areas around the drain field.

Do you know how vital your septic system is to the comfort of your family and the safety of your property? Many people do not give their septic system a second thought, or sometimes even a first thought. However, when your septic system isn’t working correctly, it could be too late to prevent a costly repair. 

Because septic systems are found underground, they remain out-of-sight, out-of-mind for many homeowners. This underground location can result in unnoticed problems, which could lead to massive issues down the line. The best way to ensure that your septic system is performing at peak efficiency and to maintain the safety of your home and the environment is by having a professional perform an annual inspection

Economy Septic Tank Service recommends that septic tanks are pumped and inspected once every three to five years for standard systems, and more often when the water volumes are higher.

During a septic system inspection or maintenance appointment, our certified septic system technicians open the tank, pump it, and clean it. We check all of the major components of the tank, including: 

  • The inlet pipe and filter
  • The outlet tee and baffle
  • The lids and tank walls
  • Drainage lines from the house to the field lines

If any issues are detected during this inspection, our technicians will advise you on any repairs that may be necessary. During the inspection, we’ll provide you with a free estimate of our recommendations.
