SEPTIC TANK PUMPING
Why take the risk?
If you are unsure when the septic system on your property was last pumped, contact Dorset Sanitation for an assessment to avoid potential health and water access problems. Even though the average septic tank has a large capacity, sludge build-up will eventually reach its limit and if the tank is not pumped properly, system failure will occur and result in expensive repairs and health hazards.
Is the waste in your septic tank over the limit?
The average waste tank on a typical septic system can hold approximately 400 to 500 gallons. Septic tanks require regular annual inspection and pumping for moderate use and more frequent maintenance for larger homes or buildings with higher usage rates. The qualified specialists at Dorset Sanitation provide efficient and reliable tank pumping services that keep your system running smoothly.
When should your septic tank be pumped?
Most malfunctions are due to lack of pumping that clears waste. Don’t wait for a small problem to get bigger and turn into an expensive major repair or complete system breakdown. Sign up for our convenient maintenance program to ensure your septic tank is pumped regularly.
