Recommended intervals of pumping for optimal functionality range from 3 to 4 years, and 5 at most. Tanks can sometimes suffer structural damage and deteriorate over time.
However, problems occur most often in the plumbing, such as clogged lines or seeping portion of the tank. If your plumbing suddenly backs up under normal use in dry weather, temporary blockage is the first probable cause.
Some pipe blockages are caused by tree roots entering the drainpipes, which can develop over a period of time. It's best to start with a complete diagnosis.
More serious difficulties occur when the soil surrounding the leaching or seeping system becomes clogged. When sludge and scum are not removed periodically from the tank (every three years for dwellings and every year for commercial establishments), they accumulate until they are transported out into the absorption field.
The carry-over of solids from the septic tank is the most common cause of leaching or seeping system failure. When no maintenance is performed, the perforated distribution drain pipe or the pores in the earth walls of the soil absorption system become clogged.
