Septic Tank Cleaning/Pumping

On average, you should have your septic tank pumped every 3 – 4 years. It basically goes by usage. The more people using it the more often is should be pumped. The size of your tank can also be a factor in how fast sludge will build up. A small tank will need to be pumped more often than a larger tank.


Call Paterson Septic & Hydrovac Service for a quote on pumping your septic tank. Price goes by distance from 100 Mile House and the size of the tank. Prices are based on the tank being under 1000 gallons (if over 1,000 gallons, a small surcharge will apply) and the lid/s being exposed. If we need to locate and dig the lid/s there would be extra charges. We need to know in advance if the lid/s need to be located as this may require the service truck to come out first with the equipment needed to locate the tank.


We can also pump out your outhouse. We need to be able to get reasonably close to it. If you want to get your outhouse pumped at the same time as your tank, make sure to mention this when booking as we need to make sure we have the proper truck with water on board.
