While septic tanks are usually cost-effective, long-lasting, and nearly maintenance-free, one key service they all need is septic tank pumping. If you own a septic tank and want to use it for as long as possible, then turn to Abbotts’ Construction for reliable and effective septic tank pumping services. We service Sarasota and the surrounding areas.
Why Is Regular Septic Tank Pumping Important?
A septic tank separates floating liquids such as oil and grease from more solid materials that settle at the bottom of the tank. Over time, these solid materials, known as sludge, can build up in a septic tank. Without proper pumping, the solid materials can leak into the surrounding soil. This can cause soil and groundwater contamination and potentially harm people’s health.
Proper pumping removes the sludge and the risk of contamination. It also can save you from unpleasant smells, sewer backups, and slow drainage.
How Often Should I Pump My Septic Tank?
You might wonder how much you need to pump your septic tank. The recommended range is every three to five years. This might vary based on the age of the tank, the level of use to the tank, or an emergency that causes the septic tank to overflow.
During the pumping process, a septic tank specialist from Abbotts’ Construction will visit your home. We will locate the tank’s access point, lower a vacuum into the tank, and pump all the sludge out of the tank. After that is complete, we’ll ensure that we’ve removed all the sludge and that the tank is in good shape.
