The National Small Flows Clearinghouse (NSFC) has published guidelines for home owners regarding the maintenance and inspection of residential septic tanks.
There are three important factors when deciding pumping frequency: the size of the septic tank, household practices, and water usage.
In addition to regular maintenance, the NSFC also recommends routine inspections. Contact a qualified local pumping service or your local health department.
