Kelowna Septic Pumping Specialists

Homeowners all over Canada have a septic tank on their property, so the importance of cleaning them is quickly growing. However, the frequency of a septic pumping varies based on the tank’s level of usage and size.

A septic tank must be filled with water before it is used. This is necessary since the water starts the sewage treatment with the bacteria which help transform waste into wastewater and sludge. A septic pumping isn’t going to take place until the tank is filled with waste.

There are two common septic tank pumping frequency mistakes: if you don’t pump out the tank frequently enough leads to costly repairs due to early drain field failure and pumping the tank too often is a waste in itself as more money will be spent. When it comes to septic pumping one needs to carefully follow a drainage plan by consulting a pumping specialist.

Does Your Septic Tank Need Pumping?

A conventional tank’s contents consists of wastewater (watery sewage effluent and a floating scum layer) and sludge that settles on the bottom. Whether the tank needs pumping or not can be determined by the scum and sludge layers, that is, when the volume occupied by the free liquid in between them is too small and the drainage takes place too slowly.

Septic pumping is not something that should be ignored. Septic waste needs to be pumped out to avoid major problems with your property. Making sure an appropriate amount of time in between pumping operations has passed can be achieved by either trying to keep a schedule for the pumping or by having the levels of the sludge and scum layers measured on a regular basis.

Homeowners must keep in mind that a critical step in septic system care is the cleaning of the tank itself, because this operation extends the life of the septic field. We serve Kelowna, Pentiction, and Vernon. For more details, call 250-765-0999
