General FAQs

At Delaware Valley Septics, we recommend a yearly pumping of your septic system’s tank; however, this may be stretched to 2 years depending on your personal use. If you have a garbage disposal or your household uses a large amount of water, we recommend not going longer than once per year.
On average, and with regular care, a septic system can last around 25-35 years. In order to get the maximum life from your system, we recommend regular inspections, pumping, and maintenance.
