SEPTIC TANK PUMPING

Everything in your home needs care and maintenance, and that includes your septic system.

 

Caring for your septic means scheduling regular drain cleaning, septic tank cleaning, and pump outs to promote septic system health and longevity. It also helps to prevent potential back-ups and avoid any expensive maintenance issues. Your tank will function better and you won’t have to worry about strange smells in your home or contaminated water. You'll also get regular snapshots of your overall septic system health. 

 

The Connecticut Department of Public Health recommends cleaning your septic tank every three to five years, though this can be adjusted based on tank size and individual household usage. For example, a family of seven will need more frequent pump outs that someone living alone.

ADB Construction & Septic provides our customers with service reminders when they are due for a cleaning. We also provide 24 hour a day emergency support for any septic troubles that may arise. Our fleet of large capacity septic tankers can handle the service of any residential and commercial septic system, including schools, apartment complexes, and restaurants.

WHY DO I NEED TO PUMP OUT MY TANK?

Plumbing Icon

The main reason to regularly pump out your septic tank is tank overload. The way a septic tank works is for heavier substances to sink to the bottom while liquids on top flow out into pipes in your drainfield. As the heavy substances sit, they form a layer of sludge. If not pumped out, the sludge layer can get too high and enter the pipes in your drainfield. This can lead to clogged pipes, an overloaded system, and a really smelly lawn.

WHEN NOT TO GET A PUMP OUT

RAIN OR FLOODING

If your property was flooded from a recent hurricane, storm or river overflow, pumping out your septic tank could cause unexpected problems.

HISTORIC HOME PURCHASE

If you're purchasing a historic home that hasn't had an updated system, make sure to do a septic inspection prior to a pump out in case of age-related decay.

PRIOR TO SELLING

If you're in the process of selling your house, getting your tank pumped can prevent buyers from having a valid septic inspection and test.
