If you are having problems with your septic system and you are in the Tampa Bay Area there are a few things to think about. Septic problems can be such a drain to the wallet. Septic system maintenance can cost money up front; however, it can save you thousands of dollars in the long run. Finding a septic service company that you can trust is hard to find. Many septic companies do what we call pump and run. If you have a company giving you a really cheap pump out then likely they are not pumping out the entire tank or they are illegally dumping.
Many tanks built after 1995 have a baffle or partition. If your tank has a baffle or a partition then there are two clean out plugs. Both plugs should be opened and the contents drained. The plug closest to the house or where the water enters is where the solids will build the most. If you don’t have a baffle or partition in the tank then either end of the tank can be opened and pumped. Make sure you get the solids pumped out of your tank. SWS prefers that the owner be present to inspect the tank.
