If you’re looking for a septic professional in the Lakeland area who can take care of the septic tank pumping process for you, turn to us.

Although septic systems require relatively little maintenance, one part of maintaining your septic system that you should never put off is septic tank pumping. When your septic tank is pumped, the solid waste that settles at the bottom of your tank is removed, ensuring that your tank doesn’t get filled to capacity. If your tank does reach its capacity, you’ll end up with a very messy and unpleasant situation that could damage your landscaping, cause clogs in your indoor drains, and even lead to major damage within your home.

While there is no way to prevent the sludge layer from building up in your septic tank, keeping up with regular septic pumping can make sure it doesn’t become overloaded and keep the waste at a manageable level. In a commercial setting, another risk of failure to keep up with septic pumping is an increase in the grease levels. This is especially problematic in restaurants or other food-based businesses, as the water rinsed down the drains tends to contain more grease, which can build up in the tank and cause issues with backup and other concerns. The last thing you want to worry about is having to shut down your business because your facility has a septic backup.

Keep in mind that how often you need to get your septic tank pumped is different than how often your neighbor or the business down the street needs to get their system pumped. Typically, how often you need to turn to us for septic tank pumping depends on:

  • The number of people who live in your home or the number of employees who work at your commercial location
  • The size of your septic tank
  • The amount of water your location uses on a regular basis

It’s also important to keep up with other septic maintenance tasks, such as septic inspections. At Averett Septic Tank Co Inc., we can take care of the inspection at the same time we provide your septic pumping service, keeping everything within your system in good condition. During the inspection process, we’ll also determine when your tank needs to be pumped. You don’t have to worry about keeping up with a timeline or tracking a certain number of years. Instead, we can set you up on a recurring inspection schedule and take care of the septic tank pumping as often as it is needed.

FAQs About Septic Tank Pumping

Unless you just moved into a new home or business with a septic system and have never had one before, you probably don’t have a lot of questions about septic tank pumping. It is, after all, a fairly straightforward maintenance task that a lot of people in the Lakeland, Florida area need done. However, at Averett Septic Tank Co Inc., we don’t want to assume that everyone completely understands septic tank pumping, so we’ve put together a few common questions that can help both new and experienced property owners.

Can you do septic tank pumping too frequently?

The only danger involved with doing septic tank pumping more often than is necessary is the effect on your budget. It is still better to err on the side of caution rather than cover the expense of a messy backup or a failed septic tank or drain field.

Do you have to dig up my yard to do septic tank pumping?

The only digging needed is to uncover the opening to the septic tank. Occasionally, it can take more than one attempt to find the cover, but we always do our best to be as neat as possible. When you are a regular customer, we’ll make note of where it is so that future septic tank pumping visits go smoothly.

Do you remove all the waste when you do septic tank pumping?
Yes, there is no reason to leave any waste behind. Any company that tells you they are leaving some so that bacteria remains is just hoping to charge you sooner for the next pumping. The bacteria your tank needs to function properly will repopulate just fine.
