How often should I have my septic system pumped out?

It is recommended to have the system pumped out every 3 to 5 years. This can vary depending on factors such as:

· The size of your household

· Do you use a garbage disposal?

· Does your laundry water go through your system?

· Is there adequate bacteria in your system to aid in the digestion of organic solids?

· Do you want your system to last and work effectively as long as possible?
