Hukill's Septic Pumping Services

Periodic pumping of your septic tank is useful to maintaining the longevity of your septic system. We recommend having your tank pumped at least every five years to help keep your tank and septic system in proper working order. With proper maintenance, this will keep your septic system flowing freely.

Pumping Basics

Most homeowners should have their tanks pumped at least every five years. The septic system is the digestive tract of your home: water leaches out through special perforated pipes into the drain or leach field, which prevents the tank from filling up too quickly. The right balance of bacteria in the septic tank means that solids are broken down even further and turned into liquids, with the solids remaining significantly diminished in size. If you use a bacterial cleaner on a regular basis, the billions of bacteria added to the tank will keep diminishing the solids in the tank keeping your septic tank running smoothly.
