Pompano Beach Septic Tank Pumping
Septic tanks need routine cleaning to keep them functioning properly. If you own a business or home in Pompano Beach with a septic system, pumping and cleaning your tank is important to maintain your system. At Eco Pump Services, we offer professional septic tank plumping and cleaning – we are licensed and insured to perform tank maintenance in Broward County.
Septic tanks hold the solid waste and provide a confined area for decomposition. Bacteria break down solid waste over time, reducing much of the waste to liquid. Through this process, septic tanks create different layers of waste. Solids sink to the bottom, creating the “sludge” layer, with another “scum” layer above and then liquid on top. The liquid or effluent overflows and finishes treatment in a drain field or mound system. When sludge and scum reach a certain level, the tank must be emptied or risk sewage backups or septic failure.
Commercial and Residential Septic Tank Cleaning
Our crews at Eco Pump Services offer efficient septic tank cleaning to help avoid problems with your septic system. We have industrial pump trucks that can remove the sludge and scum from your septic tank and transport it to a licensed waste disposal facility. Septic tanks need to be emptied when about 30% of the capacity is full of solids. The frequency of pumping depends on how quickly solid waste is collected, the size of the tank and the efficiency of the system. Most households will need tank pumping about every three years. Businesses will usually need their tanks cleaned more frequently.
