How Often Should I Have My Holding Tank Pumped?
Because holding tanks have to be maintained more often than septic tanks, the frequency can depend on the size of the tank, the number of occupants in your home, and how much water you use. While they should be pumped every two years at least, most holding tanks are pumped every three months or even monthly.
How Do I Know When My Holding Tank Is Full?
Many holding tanks have alarms that alert homeowners when the tank is full or dipsticks that people can use to measure the amount. If you do not have a working warning system, it’s best to have a regular schedule so that your tank does not become too full and leaks out onto your lawn.
Many customers say “septic tank” when they mean “holding tank,” and while both are sanitation systems that collect waste, they handle it differently. Holding tanks don’t let the contents leach away into the ground; waste going into a septic tank often runs through a leaching field so that bacteria can break down some of the contents.
