Septic Tank Pumping for Burien Home and Business Septic Tank


Septic tank pumping is a normal maintenance procedure for every Burien septic system. We recommend that septic tank pumping should be done every 3-5 years. The higher the typical use is, the more frequent your system will require a septic pumping service.

Septic tank pumping is a standard maintenance procedure because:

  • Sludge is the heavy solid waste that sinks to the bottom of the tank

  • Accumulation of sludge becomes deeper and thicker overtime

  • Oils and fat form a grease layer at the top (scum layer)

  • A tank full of scum and sludge can clog or block outlets and inlets

When your Burien septic tank becomes full, you might experience sewage backing up in to your toilets or other drains within your home or business. In order to avoid this messy, unhealthy and certainly unwanted event,septic tank pumping needs to be done on a regular basis.
