Yes. If you have a system that is failing, an improperly working leach field or drainage area, a smaller than standard system or a system overstressed by the use of a garbage disposal, it may be necessary to have the system pumped more frequently. High water conditions may also mean more frequent pumping, at least until the problem causing the high water is resolved. How often your septic system needs to be pumped depends on the situation. If your system is too small for your needs it would be advisable to have the system replaced. Many states are becoming more stringent in their regulations governing permissible systems. To obtain information on regulations governing septic systems, contact your local county health department.
