Septic Tank Pumping in Winter Haven, FloridaThe best way to know if your tank needs to be pumped is to have a septic tank inspection.  The need for a septic tank pumping is something that can be predicted, however, based on how often you have needed service in the past and how long it has been since your last pump-out. As a general rule of thumb, a septic tank pumping should be done every 3-5 years depending on a few factors.

Factors That Can Determine How Often You Need Septic Tank Pumping:

  • The size of your septic tank– The smaller the tank, the more often it will need to be pumped.
  • The number of people living in your home– Each additional person brings additional waste and water usage.
  • The amount of solid waste– The use of a garbage disposal significantly increases the amount of solid waste coming from your home.
