system maintenance goes a long way. All septic tanks
should be checked on an annual basis to ensure they
are working properly. Baffles, specially designed pipes
which allow the sewage into and out of the tank, need
to be checked to ensure they are not worn or damaged.
The level of sludge (the material that accumulates at
the bottom of the tank) needs to be measured to determine
when the system should be pumped. Homeowners should
routinely have their septic tanks pumped out every three
to five years. However, the frequency with which your
tank needs to be pumped may vary depending on the size
of the tank and number of people in the household.
