Holding Tank Pumping

holding tank pumping

When you have a holding tank you will need to get your tank pumped approx. every 1-2 months depending on the usage and the size of the tank.

what is a holding tank?

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 septic tank has a bioactive process that allows organic material to decompose and the water to be cleaned before returning to the groundwater. A holding tank is essentially a storage unit for your wastewater. As such, it requires constant pumping for removal of waste.

when to pump?

Holding tanks needs to be properly maintained on a regular basis. Depending on its size, it needs to be pumped every few weeks to every few months. In warmer weather conditions, you need to have your tank pumped more consistently to avoid the foul odor from decomposition. Even if you aren’t actively using the tank, it needs to be pumped so that the sludge doesn’t harden and cause an eventual buildup of water that comes out through the toilets.
