Do I Have to Pump My Septic Tank?

The answer is simple: YES. Every home and business owner who operates on a septic tank system must pump their septic tank. Depending on the number of people living in the house and the usage of the septic tank, how often it needs to be pumped may vary. On average, with a family of four, a septic tank should be pumped about every two years.

What Causes the Thick Crust in My Septic Tank?

The crusting is organic material that has congealed into a solid mass. This condition is dangerous and indicates a bacterial deficiency. Your tank needs pumping and CCLS® to avoid future problems. CCLS is a liquid bacteria product that is used in septic tanks to balance the environment of the septic tank system.

Will Acid Will Help My Septic System?

Acids and chemicals work only temporarily. They are extremely dangerous to use and are harmful to the environment. The Environmental Protection Agency has already banned the use of these hazardous materials in many areas.

What About Yeast or Baking Soda?

Yeast merely provides a fermentation environment. It does not provide bacteria. Baking soda raises the pH in the tank. Again, this provides no bacteria and raising the pH too much can actually harm the septic process.

My System Recently Backed up for the First Time in Years. Why Should I Start Maintaining it Now?

A backup is the first sign of a septic system failure. You will be lucky to go another six months without another backup. Using CCLS® will help reverse the clogging trend. If you don’t start a maintenance program right away, you will be replacing your system soon.
