Your Septic Tank Cleaning questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does it cost to clean a septic tank near me?

Septic pumping costs $395 to $610, depending on the septic tank size. Septic pumping involves removing liquid and floating solids from the septic tank with a hose. The term "septic pumping" is often used interchangeably with "septic cleaning" but the services are not the same. 

Septic cleaning costs a bit more because it takes the pumping process one step further. The service pumps the waste out and then cleans off any sludge from the bottom of the tank and residue stuck to the walls. Over time, this residue accumulates and clogs the drainpipe.

How often does a septic tank need to be cleaned?

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 the septic tank size.

Professionals should also inspect the system every 3 years to look for leaks and layers of scum and sludge. Septic inspection costs $150 to $450 as part of your regular maintenance.

How do I know if my septic tank is full?

Some signs that your septic tank has reached capacity include:

  • Toilets and drains run slowly
  • Foul odors in the home
  • Pooling water above the drain field
  • Sewer backup in the yard
  • Overly green grass above the septic bed

How long does it take to clean a septic tank?

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.

Why clean a septic tank?

Cleaning a septic tank removes excess waste, particles, and residue. Pumping the tank prevents backups and clogs in the septic system and allows water and waste to continue flowing.

Who cleans septic tanks?

Septic service professionals and some plumbers pump septic tanks. Get cost estimates, contact septic pumping services, and book the job today on HomeGuide.

How should I choose a septic tank contractor?

Routine septic cleaning is necessary to keep your home and yard free from septic messes. When choosing a septic service, follow these guidelines to find a reliable septic service near you:

  • Look for certified septic tank pumpers that have been in business for several years.
  • Check their online reviews at HomeGuide and Google.
  • Get estimates from several companies to compare.
  • Ask about hours of operation and same-day emergency services.
  • Make sure the company uses the latest equipment.
  • Ask about the warranty policy.

What questions should you ask local septic tank cleaners?

A septic system lasts 20 to 40 years on average, so your septic service will clean the system repeatedly over its lifetime. Be sure to choose a septic service you can rely on by asking these important questions:

  • How long have you been pumping septic systems?
  • Will there be odors during and after the service?
  • How many septic systems have you pumped?
  • Do you charge a fixed price, by the hour, or by the gallon removed?
  • Does your estimate include locating the tank lids and digging to gain access?
  • Is disposal of the septage included in your estimate?
  • Do you charge more for systems that haven't been well maintained?
  • Does your cleaning include a filter replacement?
  • What’s your payment schedule?
