It's important to remember that your septic tank collects all of the wastewater produced from your home including the toilets, showers, sinks, washing machine and dishwasher. The heavy matter settles at the bottom of your tank as sludge. Grease and soap scum rise to the top and form a layer of scum. The layer in-between is effluent and it is released into the leaching field to be filtered by the soil.
This question is tricky to answer without having some important information about your tank and your household. The frequency at which you should schedule a septic tank pumping depends on the size of your tank, the number of people in your household and whether or not you use a garbage disposal. In general, it is recommended you have your tank pumped every 2 to 3 years. Our Resources page has more information on your system.
