Septic tank pumping costs $250 to $750 on average, depending on the tank size and location. Pumping a 750-gallon tank for homes less than 1,500 square feet costs $250, while 1,000+ gallon tanks for homes 2,500 square feet and up cost $375 and up.
The Environmental Protection Agency recommends pumping your septic system every 3 to 5 years. Septic pumping frequency depends on the number of residents, the amount of wastewater generated, the volume of solids, and septic tank size.
Professionals should also inspect the system every 3 years to look for leaks and layers of scum and sludge. The tank needs pumping when the bottom of the scum layer is within 6" of the bottom outlet tee, or the top sludge layer is within 12" of the outlet tee.
Pumping a home septic tank takes 20 to 60 minutes to empty on average, depending on the tank size, past maintenance, volume of waste, and the equipment used.
Pumping a septic tank removed excess waste, particles, and residue. Pumping the tank prevents backups and clogs in the septic system and allows water and waste to continue flowing.
