What Kind of Equipment is Used During Septic Tank Pumping?

If you’ve scheduled septic tank pumping at your home, you may be interested to learn more about what kinds of equipment will be needed to complete this routine task. While you most likely expect a big pump truck to pull up in the driveway, you may be surprised to learn that there are a few other tools that your septic professionals can use to ensure your septic tank pumping provides the best results.

  • Pump Truck – The most obvious equipment that is used during septic tank pumping is the pump truck, which has a high-capacity vacuum for removing any waste from your septic tank. The truck also has a large holding tank where waste water is stored until it can be transported for safe disposal at the proper facility.
  • Video Inspection Equipment – Septic tank pumping services typically include a septic inspection, and your septic professional will most likely have video equipment that can be used to thoroughly inspect your tank and other septic system components.
  • Sewer Jet – For hard-to-reach areas or clogs that may be affecting your septic system, it may become necessary to use a sewer jet during septic tank pumping. While this isn’t always a standard practice during a routine cleaning service, it can be a handy tool when something seems to be out of order.
