Locate the septic tank lid. Original blue prints are helpful in finding the septic tank.
Uncover the dirt from the septic tank lid and from the front and rear baffles. The baffles are usually located about 2 feet behind and in front of the main access lid.
Remove the main access lid and the baffle access covers.
Remove sludge from around the inlet and outlet pipes located within the front and rear baffles.
Have a professional pump out the entire tank.
Replace baffle covers and main access lid. Ensure that the lids are firmly in place without any gaps.
Fill in dirt over the septic tank. Pack dirt down as you fill the holes in.
Mark the septic lid and baffle locations for future use.
