How Kids Can Impact the Pumping Schedule of a Septic Tank

Eco Pumping Services truck

The schedule for pumping your septic tank will depend on the type of system and number of people living at your property. Some systems will not need attention for 3-5 years, where others require pumping once a year.

However, there is another factor to consider and that is how the septic tank is used. These systems are designed to handle human waste and toilet paper. There are certain materials and objects that will impact the efficiency of a septic tank.

Most adults understand that controlling the materials that end up in a septic tank is important. With that said, if you have children, you may end up needing your septic tank pumped and serviced unexpectedly. There are several common reasons for this, and they could end up costing you over the long term.

Small Children

It is difficult to teach toddlers the correct etiquette when it comes to using the toilet. Any object small enough to flush away could end up in your septic tank. Items including toys, keys and even clothing are commonly found in septic tanks at a family home.

If these foreign items cause problems in your septic tank, cleaning out the system is often the only option. Hard objects such as plastic will not break down and can get jammed in the working parts of a septic tank. To save yourself a fortune in repairs, have your septic tank checked if you suspect a small child has been flushing inappropriate items down the toilet.


Teenage boys and girls spend a lot of time grooming in the bathroom. This can lead to items such as wipes being disposed of in the toilet. Although they may look similar to toilet paper, wipes should never be flushed down the toilet. They cause blockages in sewer and septic tank systems.

If you would like to learn more about how to keep a septic tank in good working order until your next scheduled pumping, give Eco Pump in Pembroke Pines, FL a call today.
