How Often Should I Have My Septic Tank Or Cesspool Emptied?
Make sure you know when it's time to have your cesspool or tank emptied.
There is no hard and fast rule on this I am afraid as it depends on the tank you have and the overflow system you have in place.
If you are buying a house with a cesspool ask the previous owners how often they had it done and ask that as part of the deal they have it done the week before you move in.
Some properties just need the tank emptying once a year, others every six months or every 3 months.
