Regular Septic Tank Pumping will extend the life of your wastewater system

How often a septic tank needs to be pumped is a common question.

Reddi Services does recommend regular Septic Tank Pumping and Maintenance, but that schedule depends on several factors. The number of people in the home, the amount of waste water consistently produced, the size of the septic tank, and the volume of solids all must be considered to accurately determine an appropriate pumping schedule. Regular pumping of a septic tank will extend the life of your wastewater system and protect your drainfield. In fact, correctly maintained systems can last for decades.

Reddi Services is certified to maintain, repair, replace, and pump septic residential and commercial wastewater systems. All waste is handled properly and removed from the site to a processing facility. Sludge and scum levels are analyzed, along with typical household use habits, to determine the next pumping date. Between pump dates, homeowners are encouraged to conserve water, address plumbing issues like leaks promptly, and correctly dispose of garbage, food, and chemicals.
