Why is Septic Tank Maintenance Important?

An irregular septic pumping schedule will harm your septic system, causing failures, expensive repairs, and environmental issues. Without regular pumping, solid waste and scum build up in the tank, reducing its capacity to hold wastewater. An overloaded septic tank can push solids into the drain field, which is meant to handle only liquids. This buildup can cause backups and overflows, leading to sewage surfacing in your yard or backing up into your home. It also creates wear and tear on your system, making it less effective at treating wastewater over time and shortening the lifespan of your septic system. 

Additionally, an unpumped tank or a failing drain field can cause untreated wastewater to leak into the soil and groundwater. This contamination could introduce pathogens, nitrates, and chemicals into the groundwater, posing health risks to humans and animals, while polluting nearby streams, rivers, and lakes. Florida is especially vulnerable to contamination because we all rely on its underground aquifers for drinking water.

Septic Tank Cleaning Services

While a standard septic pumping removes the scum and sludge from your tank, septic tank cleaning goes a step further. It involves a thorough cleaning of the tank walls and bottom to remove all residues. This periodic deep cleaning ensures optimal performance and prevents buildup that can lead to blockages. ACE Septic & Waste recommends scheduling a septic cleaning for every other pumping, especially if your system is experiencing issues. 

Commercial Lift Station Pumping Services

Septic tanks aren’t the only thing that needs regular pumping. Many businesses or large complexes will rely on lift stations to move effluent to wastewater facilities. These stations use powerful pumps to lift and transport wastewater, preventing backups and overflows. However, when clogs build up or the lift station breaks, lift station pumping and cleaning is required before the tank can be serviced. Regular service and maintenance (including pumping) is essential to remove debris and sludge, ensuring your system operates efficiently and reliably. This maintenance is crucial for protecting public health and keeping your commercial property safe from sewage issues.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I pump my septic tank?

We recommend pumping your septic tank every 3 to 5 years, depending on the size of your tank and household usage. Schedule a cleaning on every other pumping.

What are the signs that my septic tank needs pumping?

A few signs your septic tank needs pumping include slow drains, gurgling sounds, bad smells, lush grass over the drain field, pooling water, and unusually healthy plants near the tank. If you notice any of these, contact ACE Septic & Waste.

Can I use any cleaning products with my septic system?

It’s best to use septic-safe products to avoid disrupting the bacteria balance in your tank. ACE Septic & Waste recommends using BioOne Cleaner, an all-natural product that encourages healthy bacterial growth, essential for breaking down waste and keeping your system functional.

What should I avoid flushing down the toilet?

Avoid flushing wipes, feminine hygiene products, paper towels, and any non-biodegradable items. Check out our guide on what not to flush down the toilet into your septic system.

Does pumping the tank eliminate all problems?

While regular pumping prevents many issues, it does not fix structural problems or failures in the septic system. Regular inspections and maintenance are also necessary.

I had an emergency on a weekend and called ACE for help. My tech was Adam M. and he got to the house within 30 minutes. He was personable, educated in the fixing of my issue at hand, and went above and beyond to resolve the issue. He was very informative and communicated with me about what was going on and what he was doing. Needless to say, he resolved the issue quickly and efficiently. I am more than pleased with the service I received and highly recommend using ACE. Thank you guys!

Outstanding customer service. Will B. is a real gem. I called ACE Septic & Waste on a Sunday afternoon, and they were the only company that had a live person answering the phone. They sent Will B. on Monday morning, but was willing to send someone on Sunday had I asked. Will was so knowledgeable and helpful. Just a very nice gentleman. Because of him and the customer service, I will always call ACE Septice & Waste first.
