Years can pass from one septic pumping to the next, which gives you time to save up a little here and a little there to afford it. The money you save on sewer utilities can be set aside to prepare for your next pumping appointment, but how much will it cost? It’s better to know and be ready than to worry about it, so read on to find out.
Septic Pumping Requires Some Heavy Equipment
Septic tanks are pumped out by septic professionals who use a large industrial vacuum pump with a long hose attached to a big tank on a truck. When the septic tank is empty, the tank truck drives off to dispose of the sludge safely.
That means your bill helps pay for the truck, its fuel, the pump, the professional and their training, and some regular cleaning for the equipment. Consider the time it takes to pump your tank to the mix, too. With everything in context, you start to understand why it’s important to set money aside to pay for pumping.
Septic Pumping Cost Estimation
The size of your tank, how full it is, and a few other factors can have an impact on the price, but it’s safe to guess that an average pumping appointment will cost somewhere between 300 and 400 dollars. Call Maui Pumping today to get an estimate on the actual cost. If you live in a remote part of the island, have an extra large tank, and put off pumping as long as possible, be ready to cover a bigger bill.
Cesspool pumping costs reflect the cost to pump a septic tank of the same size. The differences between these two waste management systems rarely affect pumping, except for the time between pumping appointments. Because cesspools don’t release waste water as efficiently as septic systems, they tend to need to be pumped more often.
All it takes is a call, any time of day, any day of the week and you can schedule a septic pumping or cesspool pumping appointment in just a few minutes. You can reach Maui Pumping at 808-871-7867.
