Septic Tank Capacity

Before installing a new septic tank, a few things need to be ensured.  Number one, figure out where you want your drainage field to be located.  Number two, you need be certain that the slope from the house to the tank is steep enough – unless you are going with a pump-driven system that is.  Number three, finally you have to make sure the tank is large enough to handle the waste production of the household or business it will serve.  There are calculators that can give you an estimate of the size of thank you need based on the number of people in the household, and how active they are on a monthly basis.

How to know when your septic tank is full

It can be almost impossible to know from site alone if your tank is nearing its capacity, since it’s buried undergound.  Again, there are calculators to help you come up with a pretty good estimate of when you should have your tank pumped, but the safer bet is to make sure it gets pumped before it gets full.  Getting your septic system pumped before it becomes a requirement is actually the smartest way to do it.  Being caution-minded will save you from what could turn into a huge cleanup effort, and will prevent overflowing due to being filled.

Things to do after pumping

It’s a good and opportune time to have your tank inspected at the same time you having it pumped.  When the tank is empty, it’s the easiest time to locate any issues and look for structural damage or other problems  At Albuquerque Septic Pumping Service, we make this out standard operating procedure, and our septic technicians will make sure to bring this up to you after they have pumped your tank, to make sure you get the most our of your hard-earned money.
