How Much Does Septic Tank Pumping Cost?
One of the factors to consider when you have a septic system in your home or business is how much does septic tank pumping cost for cleaning and other maintenance. Luckily, these costs are minor and the services don’t take much time if done regularly.
Maintaining your septic tank and drain field is not difficult, but it does require some planning. It’s important to budget money, time, and resources to keep all aspects of your home running smoothly, and your septic system is no exception. With proper maintenance, it should be one of the easiest pieces of home-ownership, however, as most septic companies can service your tank and system quickly and easily.
Usually, there is a set rate for pumping your septic tank, based on the size of your tank (septic tanks usually run from 1000 gallons to 2500 gallons). Of course, if there are blockages, leaks, or other problems, those costs could rise. The more people using a septic system, the more often you should hire a professional to inspect and pump your septic tank.
The Environmental Protection Agency suggests pumping your septic tank a minimum of every three years to avoid septic system problems and environmental health hazards. And, while the EPA suggests that minimum service, the age, use, and size of your tank are all factors to consider when making a service plan.
