St. Augustine Septic Tank Pumping
Septic Tanks are a significant investment and should be maintained regularly. There are 4 major factors that will influence the frequency of having to get your St. Augustine Septic Tank Pumped. They are the number of people in your home, the amount of water being used, the volume of solids in the waste water and the size of your septic tank.
It is recommended you have your tank pumped every 3 to 5 years, and you should have your septic tank inspected at least every 3 years. This will ensure optimal performance. Alternative systems with electrical float switches, pumps or mechanical components need to be inspected once per year. When getting an inspection your St. Augustine Septic Tank Contractor should inspect the following:

7. Inspecting Mechanical Components

There should never be an alternative to getting your septic tank serviced or pumped. Some makers of septic tank additives claim that their products break down sludge so the tanks never need to be pumped. The effectiveness of these additives is questionable. In fact, septic tanks already contain microbes they need for effective treatment. The best way to ensure your Septic Tank is working properly is to have periodic inspections and pumping.
