Septic Pumping In Central Oregon
What exactly is septic pumping? Septic pumping is simply the procedure of removing liquid and solid waste from a septic tank with a pump. A pump passes a thin, hollow pipelined into an inactive septic tank filled with solid waste products (the septic tank soil). The pump, connected to a large plumbing system, removes the waste products by breaking up the solid waste into gallons and flushes them down the drain.

Septic pumping may seem like a simple procedure, but homeowners often underestimate the amount of sludge that must be removed from the tanks. Generally, a septic tank contains between five to fifteen gallons of sludge, which cannot be simply brushed away or flushed away. The sludge can become so concentrated that it clogs pipes, breaks down sewage lines, or leaks into underground storage tanks. Not only does sludge need to be removed, but homeowners must also make sure that it isn’t being re discharged back into the environment because re-discharge is illegal.
When purchasing a property, a homeowner should make sure that the property is in good condition and that the previous owner did not violate any regulations regarding maintenance of the property. If there was any neglect on the part of the previous owner, the homeowner has the right to reclaim any damages. Sometimes this requires contacting a septic pumping technician to inspect the property and do the necessary work. That inspection could save you thousands of dollars.
Septic pumping, also known as septic cleaning, is required by the EPA and all states have various septic system rules and regulations pertaining to the maintenance of the septic system. These rules are put in place to protect both the consumer and the system of the country. All homeowners who own residential properties have to hire a licensed septic pumping technician to perform the cleaning and pumping of their septic system. This ensures that the sludge, which can sometimes be extremely tough to clean up, is removed. Failure to remove the sludge can lead to the cracking of the septic system and the leaking of chemicals into the water table, a very costly mistake.
Pumping experts can also recommend the proper size of a septic tank for each homeowner. Sometimes the septic pumping technician will also recommend the right-sized service tank for the structure as well. When the correct service tanks for the structure are selected, the septic system is maintained in good working order. When the septic system needs to be serviced, the service technicians can recommend the proper service method, which can include manual or automatic pumping.
