3. Identify the Best Method of Transport

The type of trailer used to ship your septic tank depends on its weight, dimensions, and distance, among other factors. For example, average-size septic tanks can be shipped using a flatbed trailer, but larger ones require a more specialized trailer. 

4. Loading and Securing the Septic Tank

Septic tanks must be carefully loaded using cranes and well-secured by straps to prevent them from moving while in transit. We use blankets and foam pads to protect the external and internal components from damage. However, septic tanks are susceptible to damage, and slight damage could lead to contents leaking.

How Often Do You Empty a Septic Tank?

How Long Does it Take to Empty a Septic Tank?

A septic tank should be inspected and emptied every 3 to 5 years by a professional. How do you know if a septic tank is ready to be drained? Well, this can be determined if the drains are tanking forever to drain, if you hear gurgling water near the setup, bad smells, and if there’s a pool of water over the septic tank. Small septic tanks take about 30 to 45 minutes to empty, medium septic tank take about 1 hour, large septic tank take and hour to two, and extra large septic tanks take 2 to 3 hours. This time may increase or reduce depending on the situation. A professional septic tank emptying company should be in a position to tell you how long the project should take.
