It’s that time of year that our family loves — cool crisp fall days, deer season, sweatshirts, campfires, Thanksgiving…bring on the pumpkin spice too!
But winter is coming…
So does that mean we can’t pump septic systems? Well, not really. In fact, many people like to have their tanks pumped in the fall and winter months because we don’t screw up their grass since most of it is dormant at this point.
Whenever we pump tanks — no matter what time of year it is — our issues are the same, gaining access. If the tank is too far from a driveway or road and we have to drive in a field, yard, pasture, etc, we have to be careful of the weather. In the spring and summer, we have to be careful of rain. (Well, we had to be careful of rain any year prior to this year…still wondering if rain has just decided to bypass the state for good…) In the winter months, we have to be careful of snow and ice. There is also that issue that some tanks have to be dug up to gain access to — those aren’t particularly fun in the winter, but if you have surface access then we are back to only dealing with snow and ice.
So, if you’d like to get your tank pumped and winter is approaching, it’s really not a big deal. We can still pump it if you’d like!
