What to expect when your septic tank is pumped
The first step in pumping is locating your septic tank and exposing the lid. If you know where your tank is located you can uncover the tank yourself.
When the tank is open we will look at the liquid level of the tank in relation to the tank’s outlet pipe.
The liquid level should be approximately 12″ from the top of the tank. The liquid level should be below the outlet pipe, if it is not this can indicate a problem with the drainfield.
Next the hose is lowered into the tank and the pumping process begins. The hose is attached to a strong pump on our truck which sucks out the solids and liquids from your septic tank and into the truck.
Our technician will watch for backflow from the septic tank outlet pipe. Significant backflow indicates a drainfield system issue.
We will backflush, if needed, to loosen the sludge in the tank so it can be removed. The pumping is completed and the lid and hole will be covered back up. When the job is completed a receipt is given and payment is received. The option to have an emailed or paper receipt is given to each customer. If a customer loses their receipt an additional charge will be incurred for the replacement. The customer’s information is put into our database for reminder notifications when the septic tank needs to be pumped for regular maintenance.
