The average household septic system should be inspected at least every three years by a septic service professional like Better Septic Services. Household septic tanks are typically pumped every three to five years. Alternative systems with electrical float switches, pumps, or mechanical components should be inspected more often, generally once a year. A service contract is important since alternative systems have mechanized parts.
A Better Septic Services we use a Crust Buster septic tank agitator to stir your tank before pumping. This breaks up the top crust layer and mixes the heavy solids with the liquid layer. The end result is a cleaner, emptier, and more thoroughly pumped tank. Sedgwick County recommends pumping tank at least every three years. Frequent pumping is the best insurance against costly repairs or replacement of your lateral field. Better Septic Services covers the Wichita area and surrounding communities.
