At William Gilder Environmental, we understand the importance of maintaining your domestic septic tank to ensure efficient waste management and environmental protection. Septic tanks play a crucial role in treating household wastewater, but regular maintenance, including tank emptying, is essential to prevent issues and maintain optimal functionality.

Understanding Septic Tank Maintenance: A septic tank operates by separating waste into three layers: scum, separated wastewater, and sludge. While the separated wastewater exits the tank and enters the soakaway system, the solid waste remains in the tank. Over time, the accumulation of sludge and scum necessitates regular emptying to prevent blockages, odors, and potential environmental contamination.

Regular Emptying is Key: To maintain the integrity of your septic tank and prevent costly problems, it’s recommended to schedule tank emptying approximately once a year. By removing the accumulated sludge and scum, you ensure the continued efficiency and longevity of your septic system, minimizing the risk of backups and malfunctions.
