Septic Tank Pumping in Indianapolis

If you live outside of the reach of municipal sewer lines, your septic tank is often one of the only things standing between you and a yard full of waste. Septic tanks are an essential part of non-municipal residential septic/sewage systems. These tanks are usually constructed from concrete or plastic and collect sewage and wastewater from the house. Septic tanks have a finite amount of space and require regular pumping.

In Indianapolis, you have the service experts you need at Max Haas to make sure your septic tank is pumped professionally and efficiently.

What is Septic Tank Pumping?

“Pumping” and “cleaning” are often used in the same way when it comes to septic tanks. However, they differ slightly. Pumping means removing some liquid and any solids/sludge that have floated to the top of the septic tank. Cleaning means removing all the water and compacted sludge from the bottom of the tank.

Pumping your septic tank is a great way to extend the longevity of septic tank’s capacity, while cleaning is a more thorough excavation of all of the built up sludge and waste in the entire tank.

Emergency Service

Major problems don’t occur for everyone with a septic tank. However, that doesn’t mean you should neglect your responsibility for maintaining it properly. In the event that regular service has been skipped or looked over, Max Haas offers Indianapolis residents emergency services.

As long as your tank is pumped on a regular basis (regular depends on how much it is being used), the solids can be removed fairly easily. The more infrequently you pump your tank, the thicker the sludge becomes, and the harder it is to remove the solids.

As these solids build up, your septic tank begins losing capacity and can lead to some unnecessary waste buildup in the land around your septic tank. This can turn from a mild annoyance to a full-blown emergency very quickly. While regular service will likely prevent this scenario, emergencies do happen. When they do, Max Haas’ team of professionals will help you solve your septic issues.

The Importance of Septic Tank Pumping

A septic system is an expensive thing to replace, so you must make sure it is properly taken care of at all times.

Regularly pumping out your septic tank is essential. A septic tank that isn’t working can pose numerous problems for any household, such as sewage backing up into household drains or sewage bubbling up from the ground around the septic tank.
