If you have a septic system, routine maintenance is necessary to keep things working properly. How often you need your tank pumped depends on the size of your tank and the number of people in your household. Most systems require pumping every 2-3 years. If you have a garbage disposal, you may find that your tank needs pumped more often.
Some Central Pa townships mandate regular pumping so you may receive a notice in the mail that your system is due to be pumped. If that’s the case, we’ll make sure your township receives all necessary documentation. Mandated pumping is based on the longest amount of time the township will allow you to go between pumpings, however, many systems need pumped more often to work effectively.
