Frequently Asked Questions about Septic Tank Cleaning
How often should my septic tank be cleaned out?
What happens if septic tank is not cleaned?
Unclean septic tanks are more than just a nuisance – they can have detrimental effects on your (and your family’s) health and the local environment. Without proper sewage treatment, the septic tank water potentially leaching into the environment could be rife with harmful bacteria that leave wells and groundwater contaminated and unusable – even dangerous.

Cleaning a septic tank requires more than just elbow grease and DIY knowledge. While the process is challenging, failure to clean your tank correctly could cause serious damage to it or even contaminate your water supply.
Best not to chance it and instead opt to hire a professional plumber to do the job right.
