While maintenance procedures vary from one brand of aerobic system to another, all aerobic systems require periodic maintenance to maintain proper function and ensure long life of the components. Additionally, your new aerobic system is required by the DEQ (Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality) to be maintained and warranted by the installer for two years.
Red Dirt Septic suggests that the trash tank of your aerobic system be pumped on a periodic basis, typically every 2-5 years. Pumping frequency depends on usage levels and tank size.
Timely pumping will prevent the buildup of debris in the ATU (aerobic treatment unit) and pump tank, avoiding costly repairs. Our service technicians can easily check your sludge and scum levels to determine if pumping is necessary.
Please call our office and we’ll help determine when your system may need to be pumped.
