This will help you determine how often you should consider pumping the tank depending on your household´s usage.

ight also depend on:

  • Size of household: Larger households, predictably, generate more waste, and thus fill up the septic tank faster.

  • How much wastewater is generated: The sheer volume of wastewater flowing into the septic tank can affect how fast the septic tank fills up.

  • The volume of solids in the wastewater: Households with many toilets, or who make frequent use of garbage disposals, tend to fill up the septic tank quicker.

  • Septic tank size: Larger tanks can hold more solid sludge, and thus will need less frequent pumping.

There are also things that you can do to reduce the frequency of septic tank pumping in Beaufort SC, for example:

  • Reduce water usage: By using high-efficiency plumping toilets and faucets, you will greatly reduce the amount of water that goes into the septic system. • Reduce solid wastes: Don’t flush anything down the drain other that toilet paper and avoid using a garbage disposer that puts organic food waste into the septic system
