All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services suggests everyone makes sure to avoid black cats and ladders on this Friday 13th! Not that we are a superstitious bunch. We know that good luck is often the result of planning and preparation. This is true particularly for your septic system. Following good maintenance practices and advice will ensure that you don’t have ‘bad luck’ with your septic system. The most important maintenance for any septic system is having it pumped regularly. The time between septic pumping can vary dramatically but it is usually recommended to be done once every 3 -5 years. This can vary depending on a variety of factors including the size of your tank and the number of people using it. Also if you have a garbage disposal, which you use, you will need to have your tank pumped annually. If you are unsure if your system needs a septic pumping please call our office where we can discuss your concerns. Today we have septic pumping scheduled for customers in Middleton, North Reading, Boxford, Lynnfield, Rowley and Peabody MA. If you wish to schedule a septic system pump out or if you have any septic system questions please do contact our Norton office on 508-763-4431 or visit
