Houses have to budget for a septic tank emptying cost approximately every 3-5 years. This depends upon the size of the tank, the number of individuals use the system, for how long it has been since the last service, and whether things that add to the sludge layer are in usage, like garbage disposals. Sometimes, house systems need service done every year.
Business and commercial tanks require service every couple of months. This is figured out by the variety of people using the system, as well as exactly what's being contributed to it. For example, restaurants and hotels with a cooking area may have to have it done every 1-2 months, but something like a retail store could most likely area gos to even more apart.
