Why should I empty a septic tank / do you need to empty a septic tank? – Video Transcription

Mark Ward:

“Typically speaking, septic tanks need to be emptied once a year. However, that is very subject to usage. If the system is sized, say, for a five-bedroom property, but there’s only two people living there, the likelihood is that the period will be longer. So it is very site-specific. But generally speaking, once a year is the norm.”
