Septic Pumping 

Septic tanks are vital for small-scale sewage treatment, and they require careful management to separate and remove solids. It’s important for property owners to know how to recognize the signs that it's time for a pump-out, and the best practices to keep your septic system in top shape. At Septic Blue, we help you catch early warnings and act on them to prevent further damage and keep your yard beautiful. 

What You Need to Know About Septic Pumping

Your septic system includes a tank where waste settles, separating solids from liquids. Over time, the solids accumulate and must be removed through pumping to prevent system failure. Understanding how your septic system works is key to recognizing the importance of regular maintenance. Removing the build-up of solids through septic pumping services will ensure that the system can continue to effectively dispose of household wastewater. Neglecting this essential maintenance can lead to backups, leaks, and significant environmental hazards.

  • Unpleasant Odors: If you notice foul smells coming from the area of your septic tank or drain field, it's a strong sign that your septic tank is overflowing.
  • Slow Drains: Are your sinks or bathtubs draining slower than usual? This might be more than just a simple blockage; it could indicate that your septic tank is reaching capacity.
  • Pooling Water: Water pooling around the drain field area usually happens when the tank is full and liquid is pushed to the surface.
  • Sewer Backup: This is the most obvious and distressing sign that your septic system needs immediate attention. Any sewage backing up into the house is a clear signal to call for professional help right away.

The Process of Septic Tank Pumping

Septic tank pumping involves a few steps that are best handled by professionals like those at Septic Blue. Here’s what the typical process looks like:

  • Inspection and Locating the Tank: The service begins with an inspection of the area and locating the tank, which may require digging if the tank is buried.
  • Pumping Out the Contents: Specialized machinery is used to pump out the contents of the tank, including solids and liquids, then waste is transported to a treatment facility.
  • Inspection of Tank Post-Pumping: Once emptied, the tank is inspected for signs of damage, such as cracks or leaks. The filters are also cleaned or replaced if necessary.
  • Covering the Tank: After inspection and any necessary repairs, the tank is covered up again, ensuring it is secure and inaccessible to unauthorized persons or animals.

How Often Should You Pump Your Septic Tank?

The appropriate frequency of septic tank pumping in Lake Wales depends on several factors, including the size of your tank, the number of people in your household, and your water usage habits. Generally, it’s recommended that you pump your septic tank every 3 to 5 years. However, households with higher usage may need more frequent service to keep the system functioning properly. Maintaining a schedule for septic pumping helps with preventing the inconvenience and potential hazards associated with an overflowing or malfunctioning system. Regular maintenance keeps your home environment safe and pleasant.

What Our Happy Customers Have to Say

Carl-Angelee Rizzo (Clermont, FL)

Mr. Brett Brooks was an awesome professional and very informative regarding our septic. He was very patient with our responses about things that were unbenownst to us and then educating us to the point of complete understanding. We will definitely be referring Brett to our family and friends if they need services. Thank you so very much for everything. God Bless! - Carl & Angelee Rizzo

Excellent service by a very knowledgeable technician. Phillip Dunker was an absolute pleasure to work with. He is an asset to your company. He is very thorough. He explained every thing he was doing and why. Next time I require Septic Blue service, I will be requesting technician Phillip Dunker. Keep up the good work.

John Gouveia (Haines City, FL)

Mr Brooks came out to pump and test my system, although the system was tested or pumped due to other issues with tank instillation and engineering, he took the time to explain in great detail the issues that we may be having. With his knowledge of tank instillation he was able to look at the Perc test design and the instillation engineer permit and was able to give me a professional synopsis of the issue and how it can be remedied. Thank you Mr Brooks for your time and information, this really helps with my progression forward.

A Hay (Auburndale, FL)

I honestly can’t say enough great things about my experience with this company but mostly with their employee Greg. He was super outgoing, polite, fun, and extremely helpful. He worked hard to help drain and clear our septic system. I will be calling this company back next time around! Will definitely recommend him and the company to people in the future.

Patrick R (Bartow, FL)

Septic Blue sent Phillip Dunker to my house to help troubleshoot and fix, what I wasn't sure as being a septic or plumbing issue. Phillip worked to validate it was not a plumbing issue and was able to resolve my septic backup. Phillip was professional and very knowledgeable. He educated me on what he was going to do prior to performing any work. He went out of his was to help resolve our issue at 230pm on a Friday afternoon. I will be a return customer!

matt coulter (Kissimmee, FL)

The guy who came out to pump our tank (Stephen Love) said something at one point about how excited he gets about the work he does, and it shows in the results and attention to detail. He listened to what I told him, gave me a clear and detailed explanation of what he knew, what he thought, and gave me what I needed to make an informed decision. It is rare these days to run into someone who takes pride in doing the hard job, and who takes the care to understand their trade completely.

Chad (Eustis, FL)

Your crew are extremely knowledgeable and professional. Guy came out to the house checked everything out and showed me where previous repair guys had made colossal mistakes. They saved me a lot of money. A great company, great tech. Thank you

Brian Blackwelder (Bartow, FL)

Today Steven Love saved me a lot of time and money. Steven educated me on what type of septic system I had. He went the extra mile and I am forever grateful???? There was complete transparency with him no hidden fees or charges. Most importantly he demonstrated how a person with integrity and loyalty to doing the best job for the customer. I would recommend Septic Blue to anyone....ask for Steven Love!

A. Michelle Collins (Winter Garden, FL)

Dont listen to the other reviews. We had a major backup in our house. I called in the morning and within the hour Steve was here. He explained everything to me and walked us through everything that he was doing. He was an awesome upstanding guy. Hard to find now a days. I highly recommend him!!!

Elizabeth Fite (Wildwood, FL)

This is the first time we’ve used Septic Blue (Charlotte, NC) to perform septic tank maintenance and they did not disappoint. Bret Brooks not only completed the scheduled maintenance but found and corrected 3 problems with our septic tank. Those corrections will save us money and heartache in the future. Thumbs up to Septic Blue and 2 thumbs up to Bret Brooks.

Arnold Wolf (Winter Haven, FL)

Because their prices were so much more reasonable I almost didn't do business with them. Several of the other septic companies said no one can pump a 1500 gallon tank for $249 and make money. I looked over their website and looked at what the additional charges would be... they were reasonable and did not apply to my home. They came out when they said they would. Steve was their technician and he was pleasant and professional. Absolutely would recommend this company based on my experience!
