While we would never say this, the jokingly common misconception is that magic fairies come and pump your septic tank for you. We believe that just because we flush our toilets, take our showers, wash our dishes with no septic flow issues that there aren’t problems brewing.

When was the last time you got your septic tank pumped? When are you planning on having it pumped next?

The answer to those two questions is very telling and could cost you a lot of money in the long run. While there are not fairies who magically pump your septic tank, there are a few truths to think about when it comes to your septic tank.

Septic Tank Issues Don’t Solve Themselves

Septic tank pumping is designed to be part of the natural lifecycle of your septic tank. Every 2-3 years is the consensus for how often you should get your septic tank pumped depending on the number of people in your household and the size of your tank. Going longer than the recommended amount of time for your tank can lead to issues down the road.

If you Go Too Long Without Pumping It, It Will Be More Expensive

Average prices for pumping your septic tank pumping range from $283 – $522 depending on the tank according to Home Advisor. That is a reasonable price compared to the over $5000 average of a new septic tank also according to Home Advisor. Choosing to ignore your septic tank and keeping the “out of sight out of mind” philosophy could cost you considerably more than you bargained for.
