When do I need to pump my septic tank?
Three variables determine when you will need to pump your septic tank: the size of your tank, the volume of your wastewater, and the solid content in your wastewater.
Alcam Advantage Waste Water Service will let you know when it is best to pump your tank. Since we do not pump tanks and do not have any ties to any pumping company, you will receive an honest and reliable answer from us.
When to pump your septic tank:
Pump the tank when the sludge depth (SL) plus the scum depth (SC) is greater than one-third of the working depth (WD) of the tank:
(SC)_____ inches + (SL) _____ inches = _______
(WD)____ divided by 3 = ______
