Septic Tank FAQs

A septic tank is an underground wastewater treatment system that’s commonly used in areas without access to centralized sewer systems.

A septic tank works by allowing solid waste to settle at the bottom of the tank while having liquid waste flow into either a drain field or a leach field – where it’s filtered naturally and then absorbed into the soil. The solids that sink to the bottom of the tank are called “sludge” and the lighter materials which float to the top of the tank are called “scum”.

The frequency of septic tank pumping depends on several different factors, including:


  • Tank size
  • Household size
  • Water usage


As a general guideline, most septic tanks require pumping every 3-5 years. However, it’s recommended that you speak with a plumber to determine the specific needs of your septic tank and your home.

The most common signs of a full septic tank and one that needs to be pumped include:


  • Slow draining sinks and toilets
  • Gurgling sounds throughout plumbing fixtures
  • Sewage odours around your home and lawn


If you notice any of these signs, call your local plumbing experts as soon as you can to schedule a septic tank inspection!

Regular septic tank maintenance is crucial to keep your septic system running efficiently and correctly. To help increase the lifespan of your septic tank and to prevent potential problems, you should practice the following:


  • Avoid flushing non-biodegradable items
  • Minimize use of harsh chemicals
  • Be mindful of water usage
  • Schedule periodic inspections
  • Get your septic pumped when it’s necessary (don’t delay this!)
