Cleaning vs. Pumping

Although the terms are used interchangeably, they are not exactly the same service. Pumping the simple process of removing all the water and liquid, with the solid waste that remains in it, from your septic tank, it doesn’t remove of the built-up sludge or slime that may be stuck to your tank. That’s when you need a clean, which removes all the waste build up in your tank.

Both are important for the overall health of your septic tank and system, though getting your septic tank pumped regularly is probably more important. Cleaning is only really necessary when your septic tank needs a really good, deep clean.


Ideally, you should be getting your septic tank pumped every few years. The problem is most people take their septic tanks for granted and never get this service done. Forgetting to get this done and can consequences on your tank and home.

The longer your tank is allowed to sit without being pumped, the more wastes and sludge can build up and be more difficult to remove. This probably means you’ll need to be a septic tank cleaning more often, which is more difficult and expensive, although cleaning is necessary eventually, even with regular pumping. Getting on top of the problem before it becomes a real issue is important.
