Having your home’s septic tank pumped is certainly not a job you want to or should attempt on your own. It’s important to know when your sewer tank needs to be pumped because failing to do so can lead to wastewater backing up or even bigger problems.
How often a septic tank needs to be pumped depends on the size of the septic tank, as well as, the number of occupants in the home. For most households, a septic tank should be pumped once every three to four years for households with four people.
Septic tanks should be pumped on a schedule based on the factors previously mentioned, but chances are you won’t need them pumped more than once each year unless you are experiencing lateral issues.
