Septic Backup Repair

DO NOT attempt to pump out, enter your septic tank or dispose of its contents yourself! Only licensed, qualified persons should attempt these tasks. Due to the danger of toxic gases, an empty septic tank should be entered only by properly equipped, trained personnel.

Under current Texas law a 750 gallon septic tank is the minimum size that must be used for a home with three bedrooms or less. If six people reside in a three-bedroom house, the tank should be pumped every year. If the same system serves a family of two, the tank would be ready for pumping every 4.2 years. Systems installed before the current rules and regulations were implemented may need to be pumped more often, perhaps every year or less.

We hope this information is clear and useful to you. If you have any further questions, please call or visit us on the web.
