Septic 101

With regular pumping overflow issues can be avoided. Septic system pumping times vary based on the size of your tanks, household size, and the amount of waste in the system. TCEQ recommends pumping every 3-5 years, but for systems installed prior to 1985 we recommend every 1-2 years.


With AJ, pumping and cleaning is one and the same. Pumping the system doesn’t always completely empty the system which can cause you to have to pump your system more frequently. We employ numerous techniques to make sure your system is clean and you can start fresh after each pump out.
