How Often Should a Septic Tank be Emptied?


Visitors: 689

If you live in or own a property that isn’t connected to a sewage system, your waste will undoubtedly be being held in a septic tank. Where our waste goes is something that many property owners tend to forget about, but if your waste is going into a septic tank, having it emptied and cleaned couldn’t be more important – for all the obvious reasons. An extremely experienced specialist offers complete septic tank emptying Reading and throughout the surrounding areas to avoid any problems and possible hazards. Now you know that you’ll contact the right professional to empty your septic tank – how often should you have it emptied?

This all depends on the size of the tank (if you don’t know the size of your septic tank, the specialist can easily draw upon their wealth of knowledge in the field to help you find out – in general its size will depend on the number of bedrooms and bathrooms inside the property), and the amount of people that live in/use the facilities inside the premises. As a basic guide, a domestic property with 3 bedrooms and 1 bath would be fitted with a septic tank that can hold between 1200 and 1500 gallons, while a 4 bedroom home with 2 baths may have a 1500-2000 gallon septic system. (This of course increases and decreases depending on the number of rooms, toilets and baths).

With that being said and while some might say that a septic tank can be left without being emptied for years upon years, it is this specialist’s strong belief that being better safe than sorry is highly important, as just leaving your septic tank to fill up and up is continually raising the risk of an overflow which will possibly cause damage to your property and your health. In some cases this could result in a very large cleaning bill, making it highly important to deal with the tank before it has a chance to rise to a dangerous level.

As a general rule this specialist would advise on using their professional septic tank emptying Reading annually, although if you’re reading this in the knowledge that you haven’t had your septic tank emptied in even longer than that or even since you moved in, call them right away. Their twenty deep fleet of 1000 and 6000 gallon tankers combined with 35-plus years of extensive experience ensures that this specialist can deal with any job and thoroughly empty and clean any septic tank.
