Pumping (Cleaning Out a Septic Tank)Most home septic tanks require cleaning every three to five years.

Pumping is needed when solids fill from one-third to one-half of the tank. The only way to know when this occurs is to have your tank inspected by a septic contractor or pumper. The inspector will recommend pumping whenever:

  • The bottom of the scum (grease) layer is within 6 inches of the bottom of the outlet tee.
  • The top of the sludge layer is within 12 inches of the outlet tee.
After the tank is pumped, there is no need to "reseed" it. Seeding means to jumpstart good bacterial growth by adding things such as yeast, manure, or dead animals. DHEC doesn't recommend seeding the system because the simple act of using the system will provide all the bacteria necessary to make the system work well.

Yeast, manure, meat and dead animals will not help develop the colony of bacteria in the tank any faster.

I heard that human waste is one of the best energy resource. Animal waste if disposed properly cannot really harm the environment. They can even improve the condition of the ground if treated properly. Again, they can also be converted to energy. It is very useful for areas where it is difficult to bring technology. Energy should always be readily available without coming from very far.
