Have us pump your septic tank and get great results.
When was the last time you had your septic tank pumped? If it’s been a while, it’s time to call us at Averett Septic Tank Co Inc. We’re septic professionals in the Dundee, Florida area known for our professionalism, great customer service, and reliability when it comes to residential septic pumping and other septic services.
The purpose of residential septic pumping is to remove the solid waste that accumulates at the bottom of your septic tank. If this buildup isn’t removed, it can accumulate to the point where it fills up your entire tank. If this happens, sewage could back up into your home since it has no way to exit your home and go into your property’s drain field for processing.
If it’s been too long since your last residential septic pumping appointment, sewage may start to come back into your toilets, showers, sinks, and bathtubs. The area around your tank may smell very unpleasant and pools of water might start showing up in your yard. But you shouldn’t let it get to this point – partner with us and we can come back on a regularly scheduled basis to pump your tank and ensure you don’t run into an emergency septic situation.
We do a thorough job on all residential septic pumping jobs, which helps extend the life of your system and gives you peace of mind knowing the job was done right. To schedule your next pumping appointment or to find out more about what we do, get in touch with us today.

Here at Averett Septic Tank Co Inc., we want to help you in every way we can when it comes to taking care of your septic system, and that includes a job that only professionals can complete: residential septic pumping. A septic tank needs to be pumped out on a regular basis, and we are here to help you answer some of your frequently asked questions about residential septic pumping, including:
How often do I need residential septic pumping?
There is no hard and fast answer to this question, since every home and residence is different. Many factors go into determining how often you should pump your tank, including the size of the tank, number of people in your household, how often you run your laundry, and even if you have a toilet running constantly. By working with our professionals, we can give you a customized guideline to follow.
How long does the pumping process take?
This will depend on the fullness of the tank and also the size of the tank. You can generally expect it to take anywhere from 30-90 minutes for the pumping process.
Will I know if my septic tank is full?
Not necessarily, but you will know if your tank starts to overflow. Look for signs of backflow, extra green and lush grass around the tank, and a foul odor. All those instances signal that you need to have your tank pumped as soon as possible.
Is there such a thing as pumping a tank too often?
While pumping too often will not hurt your tank or the system, it is not necessary and will not give you any benefits.
Do I need to use additives?
No. The waste products in the tank are all you need to provide your system with beneficial bacteria that breaks down the solids.
