The average household septic system should be pumped every two to three years. Four major factors influence the frequency of septic pumping:

  • Household size
  • Total wastewater generated
  • Volume of solids in wastewater
  • Septic tank size

Risers are caps that allow access to the tank from above the grounds surface. Since digging is not required with risers it can reduce maintenance costs by eliminating digging fees. Typically the cost of risers will pay for themselves after a few septic tank pumping, depending on how deep your system was originally installed.

In addition routing pumping most manufacturers recommend cleaning the filter in your septic tank every 6 months for proper operation. This will restrict solids from leaving the tank and prevent problems in your drain field and outgoing septic tank line.
