Why should I get septic tank pumping and drain cleaning?
Occasionally, somebody will flush something that should not be in a septic tank, for example, a tampon or diaper. These kinds of things can congest lines instantly. Other times, buildup from a garbage disposal unit, grease, or other organic waste can make the drainpipes too narrow for something as simple as toilet paper to pass. One of the major concern is when septic pumping isn't carried out often enough. Most homes need it done every 3-5 years, but a property with a garbage disposal unit may need it yearly. When the layer of sludge isn't cleared away from the bottom of the tank, it accumulates. Sooner or later, it overtakes the outlet and saturates the lines of the leach field. In any one of these cases, toilets usually start to run slower or a gurgling noise can be heard from the drains. If left without treatment, the wastewater can back up through all the drains in the house, including sinks and showers.
