How often should I pump my septic tank?

Tanks should be pumped on a regular schedule. Two years is generally a good rule of thumb. The schedule may vary widely depending on the size of the system relative to the house, the number of occupants and the age of the system, Generally the older systems are smaller and may require the tank to be pumped more often and the newer systems are larger and may not need pumping as often.
