Septic tank pumping is required by law in Loudoun County VA. Septic tanks need to pumped out on a routine basis because it helps prevent poor performance, backups, well contamination, and premature failure.
Loudoun County VA has a plan in place to ensure that all septic tanks are pumped out at least once during the years 2012-2017, and homeowners should receive a postcard notifying them of when they are to have the septic tank pumping completed at their Loudoun County VA home. Afterwards, homeowners are required to have their systems pumped out at least every 5 years.
However, based on tank size, family size, and your usage, septic tank pumping may be needed more frequently. For instance, a family of 4 with a 1,500-gallon tank (but without a garbage disposal) will probably need to have septic tank pumping done every four years. But if that same family uses a garbage disposal, the amount of solids in the waste water doubles, so the tank needs to be pumped every two years.
