Septic question


Hi, A while back I asked a question, how often should I pump my secondary tank. My field is above grade so they sunk a secondary tank with a pump in it to pump to my field. I got a few different opinions on this so I asked the septic co, the one who pumps my primary tank this question. He said you don't pump that tank. I'd like to get some different opinions on this

Septic question


He's right.

You should only have to pump that tank out when the lift pump fails and needs to be serviced.

Septic question


The secondary tank only contains liquid and should never need to be pumped
