If you are located within the CRD (Capital Regional District) then your septic tank is required to be pumped out every 5 years according to CRD Bylaw 3479. Island Pro Septic can record your tank pump out and notify the proper regulatory authorities so your property remains compliant.
How Do You Know When To Pump Your Septic System or Holding Tank?
Holding tanks usually have an alarm system to notify the owner of when the tank needs to be pumped out with a vac truck. There is often a visual alarm of some type and an audible alarm of some type. Holding tanks do not actually break-down the waste/sewage as a septic system can so it’s important a holding tank is pumped out promptly when it’s full.
With septic tanks the frequency of pumpouts can vary depending on the size of your tank, the amount of bathrooms in your household and your water usage habits. The average family home on a septic system in the Greater Victoria area of Saanich Peninsula could expect to pump-out their system every 3-5 years. 5 years is the maximum allowable time between septic pump outs if you are located within the Capital Regional District (CRD).
