Why do I need to Pump my Septic Tank?

Septic tank pumping is essential for long-term care of your septic system and keeping it in the best possible shape. The most common reasons for a septic system failure is lack of maintenance.  

Septic tanks naturally form two layers. One sludge layer at the bottom and one at the top of the tank. In order to remove the sludge  and scum layer, you have to have the tank pumped. Doing so removes the layers and prevents solids from building up and clogging your drain field or backing the plumbing into your house.
