Commercial Septic Tank Pumping
Routine septic tank pumping is the key to maintaining a properly functioning commercial septic system. Neglecting regular septic tank maintenance leaves your system susceptible to hardened grease that can cause clogged drains and wastewater backups in and out of the building.
The pumping frequency of a commercial septic system is dependent on several factors, including:
- Type of business
- Size of septic tank
- Wastewater volume
- Amount of organic material in the wastewater
Septic tanks with high concentrations of fat, oil, grease and chemicals require more frequent septic tank pumping for optimal function. A Roto-Rooter septic system inspection can help you determine the proper pumping schedule for your business.

The scheduling procedure was flawless and well-executed. My technician was excellent! He was prompt, efficient, and extremely knowledgeable and informative on all aspects of my septic tank and plumbing systems. ... All while being very friendly and personable. I now know what I'm dealing with for the future. I only wish I had that done during the home inspection two months ago.
We had a big plumbing/septic tank back up and Roto-Rooter was SO awesome!! They took my call in the evening, scheduled the technicians for the following morning, they arrived and ... knew exactly what the issue was. They had us fixed up within an hour and we could not be more pleased with the level of knowledge and experience! We'd recommend the company to anyone.
Your technician was great. He was friendly, instructive, quick, efficient, clean, and professional late on Sunday when most people want to be somewhere else besides a septic tank.
