Septic Tank Pumping Options

There are two options when it comes to pumping out your septic tank.

SERVICING – As per New York State code, a good proper pumping is achieved when you
leave 1/3 of the juice (bacteria laden juice only) in the center of the tank.  We pump the
top sludge and bottom dirt leaving about 1/3 of the product.  This keeps the existing
bacteria colonies that are accustomed to your usage and establishes new bacteria just
as if you buy a product to add that is very possibly dangerous to hands!  If you presently
treat your system as you should with bacteria, then by completely emptying the septic
tank you would be wasting many products you are adding.  Beware of any products you
may buy and where the raw material comes from!

FULL PUMPING – We pump out the tank completely leaving only a little product on the
bottom – 1″ or 2″.  If tank hasn’t been pumped in over 5 years there may be product too
heavy to pump, so first we back wash under pressure and get what we can to break up.
If we can’t get it all, you should go on our Green Bacteria Program.  It will make the hard
clumps of sludge turn to clean water in about 6 months of use.  Our bacteria will also do
the same in your leaching field.  Our Bacteria Program cultures aerobic bacteria much
faster than the anerobic bacteria dominant in a conventional system, that at most 98%
of homes now have.  Out of that, 95% are in a failure mode.  Just because the toilet
flushes, doesn’t mean the system is functioning properly.  If not functioning properly,
you could be polluting the environment….including your own ground water.
