Why Septic Tank Pumping Is So Important For Your Septic Systems Health

Septic system maintenance can be confusing for a homeowner when there is so much conflicting information out there.  Septic tank pumping removes all of the built-up solids sitting in the bottom of your tank.  Septic tank pumping is a critical maintenance task that maintains the efficiency of your septic system.  Your septic drain field was designed to handle wastewater, not the solid waste that builds up in your tank.

Regular septic tank pumping, typically every 3-5 years, prevents these solids from accumulating which then causes blockages and eventually septic system failure.  This regular maintenance can help you avoid costly repairs, it protects your property’s value, and ensures the health and safety of your household by preventing contamination of groundwater.

We are often called to our customer homes to solve a septic system problem only to discover after a quick inspection, that maintenance of the system has been lacking.

For more information on how to maintain your septic system you can refer to the Septic System Owners Guide by Florida Health.

Septic tank pumping is cheap insurance against very expensive septic system repairs in the future.

How Much Does It Cost To Pump A Septic Tank In Lakeland Florida?

In Lakeland, Florida it typically costs between $300-$500 to pump out the average septic tank.  It can cost up to $1000 or more for very large tanks that require multiple trips.  There are however, several other factors that can affect septic tank pumping costs including the capacity of your tank, whether the lids are buried and require digging up, any required repairs, and any additional disposal fees which can vary slightly depending on the closest dump site.

If your septic is clogged and you have sewage backing up we need to solve that problem along with your septic pump-out so this can definitely alter the price.  Removing clogs such as built-up grease or fats, baby wipes, tree roots, and other obstructions take time.  We want to ensure we solve your problem completely before leaving your property.

Our septic tank pumping quotes generally include trucking fees, completely emptying all chambers of your tank, emptying your distribution box, cleaning your effluent filter, a quick visual inspection, and disposal of your waste.

Getting Your Septic Ready For A Pump Out

We love to provide fast and efficient septic tank pumping services for our clients.  Here are some ways you can help us make sure your septic pump out goes smoothly and these tips can also help keep your costs down.

#1.  Please move any vehicles, boats, or RV's that might be blocking easy access to your septic tank.  We can run hoses out to 200 feet but the closer we can get to the tank, the less time it will take.

#2.  It is very helpful if you know the location of your septic tank and can relay that to our dispatch or our driver when they arrive.  We can help you locate the system if you aren't familiar with it's location.

#3.  Please let our dispatch know ahead of time if there are any obstructions.  This could include gates we will need access through, low-hanging power or telephone lines, low-hanging tree branches, very tight or steep driveways, and/or any bridges or culverts we need to cross.  A loaded septic truck is big and heavy and we do not want to cause any damage to your property or our truck.

#4.  Please keep any children and/or pets inside and away from our pumping truck and the septic tank while our driver is on-site.  This keeps your children, pets, and our driver safe.

Do You Have Questions About Septic Tank Pumping?

It's generally recommended to pump your septic tank every 3-5 years. However, the frequency can vary based on household size, water usage, and the tank's capacity. Regular inspections can help determine the optimal schedule.

Common signs include slow drains, sewage backups, toilets not flushing correctly, foul odors around the tank or drains, water pooling over the drain field, and overly lush patches of grass or vegetation over the drain field.

Failing to pump your septic tank can lead to system failures, blockages, and potentially expensive repairs. It can also cause environmental contamination of groundwater and health hazards for your family and neighbors.

A professional will locate the tank, remove the cover, pump out the waste, inspect the tank for any issues, and ensure everything is functioning properly. They will also provide advice on maintenance and future pumping schedules.

Avoid flushing non-biodegradable items, reduce water usage, use septic-safe products, and have regular inspections. Keeping the drain field clear of heavy objects and excess water is also important.

Contact a septic professional immediately if you experience sewage backups, foul odors, or standing water near the tank. They can quickly diagnose and resolve the issue to prevent further damage.

During the rainy season, ensure that the drain field remains unsaturated and avoid excessive water use. Regular maintenance checks before and after heavy rain can help keep the system running smoothly.

Yes, heavy rains can saturate your drain field, making it less effective. Ensure proper drainage away from the septic area and consider having the system inspected if you notice issues during rainy periods such as foul odors or pooling water on or around the drain field.

Yes, tree roots can invade and damage septic tanks and pipes, leading to blockages and leaks.  Do not plant trees and shrubs on or near your septic system.

Likely nothing! Your septic tank should always be full of water.  When we pump out your septic tank we will be sucking out all of the solids and water.  You however, will likely continue to use water.  Doing laundry, showering, dishes, flushing toilets, etc... Will fill your septic tank up with wastewater again.  This is a normal functioning system.  The most important part is that all of the solids have been removed from the bottom of the tank so they don't build up to the point where they clog your system and overwhelm your drain field.


If you need help with your septic system, we're the one call that can do it all!

I can’t say enough about Anytime Septic Solutions Inc! I woke up to a huge mess in my bathroom and kitchen this morning that didn’t seem to end! I have only been in this home for less than 6 months so this was absolutely shocking to me. I’m a renter so I contacted my Landlord who said they couldn’t get anyone out until THE NEXT DAY 2 PM! That would be over 24 hours with little to no access to running water. I posted a Facebook cry for help and had 2 comments recommending this company so I contacted them immediately! Megan answered my call and assured me someone could be out there by 6 pm TODAY! I was relieved! I gave my landlord their contact and just like she said, the truck rolled into rescue. The two men worked TEDIOUSLY until they knew we wouldn’t have this problem again and didn’t leave until it was completely fixed. I have seriously never been happier to leave a review. I will recommend Anytime Septic literally any chance I get. THANK YOU!🩶

So I live in rural Lake Wales and after years of flushing (non) flushable wipes started having some sewage pooling in the yard right above the septic tank. Called Anytime Septic out of Lakeland and they pumped the tank and told me it was a drain field issue and as soon as the tank refilled it would back up again because it wasn't draining properly. My options were either replace drain field completely 11,000, Or" water jet clean" the lines which is around 4,000. The septic system is 30 years old but I chose to jet the lines and it more pooling. Larry and Anytime Septic know what they're doing, look no further. Honest people.
