Are you pumping your septic system too often?

Pumping your septic system too often is not good for your septic system or your wallet. You should be pumping your system when the scum and sludge layers are equal to 1/3 the overall liquid depth of your tank (see the Frequently Asked Questions page for more information). We can help you determine your system’s pumping frequency. Please contact us by email or call our office at (978) 356-5638.

Below is a rule of thumb chart to give you some idea as to the frequency you should be pumping your septic tank. Remember there are many factors which should be considered to determine the frequency of pumping your tanks.
