The average household septic system needs to be inspected by a professional once every three years. If you’re due for maintenance, our Melbourne septic pumping services are easy to schedule and won’t disrupt your day.
With all of the excitement and activity of the holiday season, we know that your septic system might be the last thing on your mind. The truth is, if you have guests staying in your home or are planning some holiday get-togethers, septic tank maintenance is more important than ever. Acme Environmental Services is here to provide Melbourne septic pumping and any of the other septic solutions you may need.
Why Does My Septic Tank Need To Be Pumped?
When waste leaves your home, it enters your septic tank through pipes. Solid waste is slowly broken down into sludge by the healthy bacteria that live in the tank. This sludge will settle in the bottom of your tank, while the liquid waste, or effluent, will remain at the top.
While the liquid waste will travel to your septic drain field to be cleaned and filtered back into groundwater, the sludge stays in your septic tank. Over time, your tank will fill up and require professional Melbourne septic pumping to empty it out.
Septic Pumping Around The Holidays
One thing that can have a major impact on how often your septic tank needs to be pumped is overall usage and household size. When homeowners have friends or family staying with them over the holidays, it will increase the strain that is placed on the septic system.
Think about all of the extra toilet flushes, showers, loads of laundry, and dishwasher cycles being run in your home – all of that wastewater is heading straight for your septic tank.

Reducing Strain On Your Septic System
There are some simple things you can do to increase the amount of time between septic pumping and decrease the overall stress put on your septic system over the holidays, and year-round:
- Use high-efficiency toilets, laundry machines, and dishwashers
- Select the appropriate load sizes when doing laundry
- Use faucet aerators and shower head flow restrictors to reduce water flow
- Spread water use throughout the week – don’t do all of your laundry in one day and overload your system
- Work with septic experts to keep your system properly maintained
