For millions of people living in rural settings in and around Ottawa, ON, septic tank pumping is a fact of life. With the closest municipal sewage hookup several clicks away a properly maintained and working septic system is vitally important and getting it pumped out at regular intervals is a part of that maintenance.
As a septic system owner you are responsible for ensuring that your septic system is safe and working properly. Leaking septic are a health risk to both your family and the larger community, but systems can also have more insidious effects, seeping into and contaminating groundwater supplies, and mixing with the other water supplies without us even being aware of it. Many of us are simply not aware of the risks, and are not managing these systems safely. If you system starts to smell or the toilet keeps backing up, this is often a sign that the tank is overdue for a pump out. Generally speaking, the tank needs pumping if it is more than two-thirds full of liquid effluent. How often you pump out depends on how large the tank is and how many people use the system.
A septic pump out system will normally consist of two tanks, the first being a primary septic tank, and the second being an effluent holding tank. Septic tanks are also equipped with an anaerobic bacterial environment which helps decompose the waste and can also be coupled with other wastewater treatment units, like biofilters, for better use.The primary septic tank will hold back all the solids when entering the tank, allowing for settling to occur, for normally 24 hours. Solids will settle to the bottom of the tank, forming a sludge layer, all fats and old float to the top, forming a scum layer.
The natural bacteria in the septic tank begin to breakdown and digest the organic material found in the wastewater. Only the treated liquid (effluent) found in the centre level of the tank, flows out of the primary septic tank. This sludge and scum must be periodically removed to ensure that the system operates properly. Once the effluent passes into the second chamber of the primary tank, further settling of suspended solids can occur. When the effluent reaches the float system, it indicates the system is due for a pump out.
That is why we stand by our septic pumping service and recommend it be done regularly. Call us today to find out the best septic pumping schedule for your septic system!

There are several important reasons to have your septic tank pumped regularly, but before covering that it helps to take a quick look at what a septic system is and how it works.
In simplest terms a septic system is an underground sewage treatment system for homes that do not have access to municipal sewer services. It typically is comprised of four parts; the waste pipe from the house, the septic tank, the drain field and the soil. All these parts need to in working order but the tank itself is the most important part.
Getting the tank pumped out at regular intervals keeps it working properly and prevents clogs that can cause sewage to back up into the house and create disgusting odors. The primary contributor to septic tank clogs are things that very biodegradable. This includes cooking grease and oils that get dumped down the drain and paper products other then toilet paper; paper towels, sanitary napkins and tampons, cigarette butts and cotton balls will all eventually degrade but they tend to get stuck in the inner working of the tank and create clogs that worsen over time.
Another reason to get a septic tank pumped regularly is to check it for damage that can compromise its ability to work in an efficient manner. Once it’s pumped out it can be visually inspected for cracks and other damage. If any damage is detected it needs to be repaired to prevent future problems.
The pumping process itself is pretty straight forward. A large truck, sometimes referred to as a “Honey Wagon”, with a big tank, suction pump, and a large hoses will come to the property and park in the general vicinity of the septic tank. The operator will remove the manhole cover from the tank, lower the suction hoses into it and fire up the pumps, sucking the accumulated waste into the holding tank on the truck.
A good pumping service will also provide a thorough inspection of the septic tank once it is pumped clean. They will inspect the tank, valves and inlet and outlet ports for damage such as cracks or clogs. They will also inspect the ground around the tank for signs of leaks as well. Any problems should be brought to the homeowner so that they can be dealt with to ensure the proper operation of the entire septic system.
Septic tank pumping is the most important part of maintaining a septic system. A clogged or overfull tank is the primary cause of many septic system problems that can be prevented through regularly scheduled visits by the Crown Septic “Honey Wagon”.
