One of the number one questions in the septic industry is “How much does it cost to pump a septic tank?”  

There are several factors that go into determining the price of a pump out, such as: location, how much your county charges to dump waste, the size of your septic tank, along with any complications that may come with a standard pumping. If you wait over 3-5 years before having your septic tank pumped, then there could be some complications that add cost onto a basic pumping charge. If you do not know what size your septic tank is, you can typically go off how many bedrooms your home has. If your home has between 1-3 bedrooms it has a 1,000 gallon tank and if it has 4 or more bedrooms it has a 1,500 gallon tank. The exception to this rule is if you have a 3 bedroom home and also have a garbage disposal, then your home will also have a 1,500 gallon tank.
