Required Septic Tank Maintenance

The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) reports that the average life of an alternative onsite septic system (AOSS) in Virginia is 14 years. However, like most home amenities, failure to perform proper septic system maintenance can cause an avoidable malfunction and premature failure. To avoid these issues, the VDH suggests that you pump your septic tank. Those who live in the Chesapeake Bay Preservation area are required to have their septic tanks pumped or inspected at least every five years.  See below for a table suggesting the pumping frequencies for different sized tanks serving different sized households:

  • House to tank
