How to Prevent Your Septic Tank From Needing to Be Pumped Too Often

Construction & Contractors Blog

It is important to make sure that your septic tank is pumped often enough so it is not overflowing. However, if you want to make sure that you are not causing yourself to need to have it pumped more often than you should, you will want to take a moment to consider the following tips. This way, you will not have to spend so much money on the pumping of the septic tank, as you will be able to lengthen the time spent between each professional septic pumping.

Use Less Water

You will want to lessen the amount of water you are sending down the drains in order to prevent yourself from having to call for a septic pumping too often. To do this, you will want to turn off the water faucet while brushing your teeth and only turn it back on when you need the water for rinsing. Installing faucets in the bathroom and kitchen that turn off and on with the help of a motion sensor will allow you to save money. This way, the water will automatically turn off while you move your hands away so you can lather up the soap. Then, once you place your hands under the faucet again, the water will automatically turn back on. This is helpful for those who wash their dishes by hand, as an incredible amount of water can be prevented from entering the septic tank. Also, you will find that the cost of your water bill will lessen.

Have A Way To Measure The Waste Water

There will be times of the year when you might not send as much waste water through the pipes to the septic tank. Therefore, instead of simply sticking to a strict pumping schedule, you will want to simply call when the need arises. This is able to be done easily when you have a way to tell just how full the septic tank is getting. A good way to do this is to purchase a measuring stick that was designed specially for this purpose. By knowing how deep the septic tank is, you will be able to measure how full it is according to where the wet mark on the measuring stick stops. If you have not been using as much waste water as usually, you can wait a little longer before you have to call in a professional septic tank pumping company.

Do make sure that in the process of trying to avoid pumping too often that you are not allowing the septic tank to overflow, as this produces a new set of problems for you to deal with. For more information, contact a business such as Kulp and Sons.
