Septic Tank Pumping Services in Jackson & Columbia

2 men cleaning septic tank

Many Americans rely on septic systems instead of municipal sewer lines that carry human waste to wastewater treatment plants. Instead, wastewater flows into an underground septic tank on a property.

Unlike traditional sewer systems, property owners are responsible for acquiring septic tank pumping services. These regular services ensure the integrity of their plumbing systems.

Roto-Rooter offers professional septic tank pumping and cleaning services for residents throughout Jackson and Columbia, TN, and the surrounding areas. As expert plumbers, we know the dangers of an ill-maintained septic tank. Our mission is to help commercial and residential property owners take care of their systems through routine pump-out services.


When you have septic plumbing, everything you flush down your toilets or put into your garbage disposal flows through pipes to the tank. Liquid waste or effluent will fill the tank and float while a layer of solids sinks to the bottom. The bottom layer includes sludge consisting of the byproducts of bacterial digestion from anaerobic bacteria that break down the effluent.

Effluent is technically the middle layer of contents in a septic tank, as oil and grease will float on top. The liquid will then drain into a leach field where soil continues filtering the effluent. However, property owners will require a professional-grade septic tank pump to remove the solid contents.

At Roto-Rooter, we aim to provide the community with unmatched customer service and expert plumbing assistance. Our experienced technicians are at your service whether you need septic pumping, repairs, or installations. Our team has years of industry experience, state-of-the-art equipment, and a dedication to serving our clients efficiently.


Fortunately, septic tank plumbing doesn’t require emptying often. However, you’ll see signs that your tank needs maintenance.

Schedule a tank pumping if you notice the following:

  • Backed up drains and toilets
  • Foul odors around drains or the leach field
  • Standing water over septic tanks
  • Slow or gurgling drains

In most cases, it is best to pump your tank every three to five years. Nonetheless, the more people use your plumbing, the quicker the tank can collect solids and wastewater. So, you may need a septic tank plumber sooner rather than later.

Without pumped septic tanks, property owners can experience leach field failure, plumbing damage, bad odors, sewage backup into their homes or businesses, and environmental contamination.
