Home septic systems can be fickle, which is why it's important to have them routinely pumped by a professional. You may be unsure how often you should get your septic system serviced, so Great Bear Septic Service is here to fill you in on the necessities of septic pumping. Great Bear Septic Service employs the experts in septic tank care and has been servicing Putnam County and other areas across New York for more than 31 years.


When it comes to septic pumping frequency, how often you should pump depends on a few key factors. Tank size, the number of members who belong to your household, and whether or not you use a garbage disposal all contribute to the amount of time before you should get it serviced. 

For instance, if you have a 1,500-gallon tank and a family of four, the tank should be pumped after four years. While individual needs vary, if you don't pump your tank frequently enough, the resulting damage can cause an early drain field failure and rack up costly repairs. On the other hand, if you pump the tank too often, you'll be wasting a significant amount of money. As a general rule of thumb, it's a good idea to get your septic tank pumped every other year.
