New Hampshire Septic System Pumping
Most all states insist that septic tank pumping is a necessary evil, and New Hampshire is no exception. The common belief that additives allow the homeowner to forego pumping is just not the case. Allowing the pumper to do his job every 3 to 5 years should prevent system failure provided the system is being used as designed.
Septic pumpers are required to be licensed by the state, and are subject to a strict set of guidelines including prominent posting of license number on truck, the prevention of spills on site and in transit, and site repair following the pumping operation. Take a look at the following video describing what the state expects from it's licensed pumpers. Septic Pumping Video
