Understandably, you may have questions about septic system cleaning and how it differs from septic pumping. What’s the difference between the two services? In summary, septic tank cleaning involves the complete removal of all the scum, wastewater, and sludge from your septic tank. Sludge typically settles at the bottom of the tank, and it’s formed due to the decomposition of solid wastes by aerobic bacteria. The service may also entail cleaning the input and output baffles and piping. It’s a more thorough service than regular septic system pumping.
For most septic systems, we first use a normal vacuum pump for the cleaning service, but if they are major issues with the septic tank, we may assess the suitability of using hydro-jetting. The process relies on pumping pressurized water into the sewer line, but it may not be suitable for all residential properties as it can be too powerful and, at times, result in damage to the tank.
1) Arriving on-site and initial consultation: When our local septic services professionals arrive onsite, the first thing they find out is the type of service you need. For instance, they will ask if you have been having any other major issues with the septic tank and plumbing system or if you just need regular maintenance.
2) Tank location and finding the access lid: We will then locate the tank using a soil prod, and sometimes it may be covered by a layer of grass. After removing the access lid, we will be ready to start emptying the septic tank. Sometimes your property may have more than one tank and it’s good to check. Two systems are common for septic tank installation after the 1980s, where a separating wall was introduced to divide the tank.
3) Pumping process: We will then undertake the pumping process by inserting the vacuum pump hose into the septic tank.
4) Cleaning out the sludge: If you also requested septic tank cleaning, we will proceed to remove all the sludge and confirm if other components, including the baffles, are working as they should. Our experts can also make sure that the drain field is not clogged by looking at common signs such as odors or returning flow.
You can extend the life of your septic tanks by scheduling regular maintenance with our professional inspection service. We can advise on how regularly to schedule maintenance after taking a look at the septic tank and drain fields.

Nationally, homeowners pay about $280 to $600 for sump tank pumping. The cost depends on the size of the septic tank, which may range from 750 to over 1500 gallons. If there is some additional work involved in accessing the lid, it may cost up to $40 more.
Some homeowners choose to save on this cost by making sure that the lids are readily accessible. There might be an additional cost if there’s any additional work involved, such as cleaning out the pipes. Finally, you should select an affordable contractor if you want to keep the costs down.
Some common signs you can check to see if you need to schedule a septic tank pumping service include sewage backup, and this usually indicates a severely overflowed tank. If you notice wet patches in your lawn accompanied by a foul odor, it may indicate that the tank is full. The lawn may look unusually healthy around the location of the septic pit. You may also experience slow drains and problems with toilet flushes.
