Holding tanks must be maintained more frequently than septic tanks. Since holding tanks do not drain off excess water (usually), they need to be pumped and emptied often as all waste water and waste from your home is collected in this system. Depending on the size of the tank and the number of occupants, most holding tanks are pumped monthly or every 3 months.
Many holding tanks include a sump pump that moves the fluid from the house to the tank, especially if there are any inclines involved. Though we do not repair holding tank sump pumps, we do check them when we empty the holding tank to ensure they are working and if repairs are needed, we can sometimes make recommendations to a company that can service the sump pump for you.
Ace Tank Service’s holding tank maintenance program includes regularly scheduled pumping of your holding tank. To learn more about our services, contact Ace Tank Services by calling 604-534-8242 (Langley), 604-820-3354 (Mission) or toll-free at 1-877-820-3354. You can also send us a message.
