TITLE 5 MAINTENANCE
What is Title 5 Maintenance?
Simply put, pump your tank to keep your system working property.
A septic tank, cesspool has three distinct layers:
1. Top-scum cap
2. Middle-grey water (treated water, ok to go to leach area)
3. Bottom-sludge (broken down solids area) Must be pumped out so that the solids DO NOT enter your leach area causing failure of your system.
Your Title 5 is good for 2-years, if you pump your tank/cesspool once a year from the date of your Title 5, then your Title 5 is good for 3-years.
