Holding Tank Pumping


A holding tank is a wastewater storage tank. The difference between a septic tank and a holding tank is that the holding tank doesn’t have an outlet pipe that leads to the leach field.

You may require a holding tank if your property isn’t big enough to hold a septic system. A holding tank is essentially a storage unit for your wastewater and usually has to get pumped every 1-2 months depending on the usage and size of the tank.


In some cases, especially in rural or remote areas, homes may utilize holding tanks as an alternative wastewater management solution. Here's a brief overview:

1. Purpose:

A holding tank for a home serves as a temporary storage system for wastewater generated within the house. Unlike septic tanks that facilitate natural biological treatment and leach wastewater into the ground, holding tanks simply collect and store all sewage and grey water until they can be pumped out and properly disposed of.

2. Maintenance:

Regular maintenance is crucial to prevent overflows and ensure the tank's proper functioning. Homeowners need to monitor the tank's level and schedule routine pump-outs by us when it reaches capacity.

3. Limitations:

Unlike septic systems, holding tanks do not provide wastewater treatment, which means that any water that enters the tank from showers, laundry, toilets etc gets held in the tank and needs to be pumped out when they are full. This means you will have a monthly/bimonthly pumpout bill on a regular basis (compared to a regular septic system that only needs to be pumped every 3-5 years).
