SEPTIC TANK INFORMATION
Think of your septic tank as living
system designed to digest and purify
your bodily waste. If not functioning
properly it can cause major problems and
damages to your home and property. Take
a look at our Brochure for information
about your septic tank and our services.
Q: How often do I need
to pump my septic tank?
A: The Oregon
Department of Environmental Quality
recommends that septic systems are
pumped every three to five years. If
four people live in a four-bedroom
house, a 1,000-gallon tank may need to
be pumped approximately every three
years. If the same system services a
family of two, the tank would be ready
for pumping every five years.
