What Makes for a Quality Septic Pumping Experience?

Plenty a cost-conscious septic system property owner has turned to the lowest-cost septic pumping service they could find without fully understanding why that might not be the best option overall. When it comes to quality septic pumping, the adage of “you get what you pay for” can ring true. Here are some things you should consider to make sure you get the best value overall.

  • Fully Pumped – Not all septic pumping companies do what you think you’re paying for. They may leave behind 20% to 30% of the waste. That is how they can give you a better price. They have less to dispose of, and they know you’ll be calling again sooner to have it done again.
  • Sludge Remaining – What is left when they don’t fully pump is sludge, and that’s bad. It can cause severe damage to your septic system. Your septic tank should never be allowed to hold more than 30% of its capacity, but if the sludge doesn’t get pumped completely each time, eventually that is exactly what will occur.
  • Cleaning the Tank – Budget septic pumping often does not include a thorough cleaning of the tank, which means you have an unsanitary condition right under the grass where your children play. That doesn’t sound very good either; does it?
  • Wasting Money – If an ineffective septic pumping is done year in and year out there is a good chance you’ll have paid for a dozen or more extra pump-outs than you would have if you’d gone with a company that was more thorough.

Don’t believe the story that you have to leave waste behind to keep it working. That is a fallacy spread by companies trying to pad their profits. Instead, trust a company that has been around since 1958 because they do things right every time.
