After a busy summer season and before the ground freezes, it is a good time to have your septic tank pumped. Plus, its easier to deal with septic system issues before the ground freezes. Tanks near the watershed need to be maintained before the melting snow and spring rains can leech sewage into the lake. You should pump your septic system every 2-3 years depending on the size of your house and system.
