Septic Tank Pumping Spanaway * Septic Pumping Spanaway


Maintaining your septic system is crucial for Spanaway residential and commercial property owners.When you are not using the Spanaway city sewer system, you are depending on your septic tank and system to properly process any waste water and sewage.

The waste water from your Spanaway home not only comes from your toilets, but also the other drains in your home including your showers, dishwashers, washing machines and sinks.

Lee’s Sanitation Service has provided septic pumping services, septic system maintenance, repair and installation for new septic systems to the residents of Spanaway for more than 60 years.

Septic tank pumping is a standard maintenance task to protect against sewage backup. Typical usage can influence septic tank pumping frequency, but for most Spanaway home or business property, we recommend every 3-5 years.

Normal septic tank pumping is necessary because:

  • Solid waste sewage (called sludge) sinks to the bottom of the septic tank

  • Sludge will thicken and build up overtime

  • A grease layer (called scum) forms at the top of the tank

  • Without septic tank pumping, scum and sludge can clog or block septic tank inlets and outlets

When your Spanaway septic tank is full, it can no longer operate effectively. Without septic tank pumping, raw sewage and waste water will be forced back into your home. It will appear not only in your toilets, but in other drains throughout your Spanaway home, like showers, dishwashers, or washing machines!

You can avoid this unhealthy and unpleasant experience by scheduling septic tank pumping on a regular basis.
