*How often should homeowner’s get their septic tank pumped?

With the new Minnesota State Law of 2008 septic systems need to be inspected every three years. This does not mean that the septic tank needs to be pumped.  Upon request the septic tank can be inspected to see if the level of solids in the tank is great enough to warrant pumping.  As a general rule we recommend that septic tanks should be pumped on a regular basis. Homes with a garbage disposal should have them pumped once a year and other systems without a garbage disposal should be pumped every three years.
