How to Prepare Your Septic Tank for Pumping

The size of your septic tank relies solely on the size of your home and how much your tank gets used. The larger the home, the larger the septic tank. If you have a large family and your septic system experiences a lot of wear and tear each day, it’s important to have your septic tank pumped regularly. The team at Septic Blue of Raleigh recommends getting your septic tank pumped every 2-5 years depending on the use of your tank. If you have 8 people in your home and your septic tank sees a lot of use in a day, you should get your tank pumped every 2-3 years. If your tank doesn’t see much use on any given day, you are good to get it pumped every 4-5 years.

Are you wondering the last time your septic tank was pumped? If so, it’s probably time for a septic tank pumping. Are you looking for a new septic tank company to provide you with fast, reliable, and affordable septic tank pumping services? Call the office of Septic Blue of Raleigh today to schedule your same or next-day appointment!

Tips for Preparing your Septic Tank for Pumping

Now that your appointment with Septic Blue of Raleigh is confirmed, it’s time to start preparing your property and your home for them. Believe it or not, there is a lot of prep work that you should do to prepare for your septic tank pumping.

You’ll first want to start by locating your septic tank – you’ll want to locate all the different components of it. If your septic system is older, it’s most likely completely buried underground and won’t be as easy to find.  If you’re not sure how to locate your septic tank, we recommend getting your hands on a map or layout of your home from your town or city. Once you have this, you’ll want to mark off where the tank is itself, where the pipes are, where the drainfield is, and so on. This is extremely important to do before the Septic Blue of Raleigh team comes to your home with our machinery.

Another important thing you’ll want to do before our team comes for your septic tank pumping is ensuring your land and your property on top of your septic tank is ready to go. Whether that be mowing your lawn, removing any necessary landscaping, tree removal, etc., you’ll want to have this done before our team comes up. Pick up any twigs, leaves, weed, or grass clippings so our team can get started right away.
