The best way to keep a holding tank clean is to understand its inner workings. How does the waste behave, and how can you keep your tank healthy? It’s important to know where the waste goes and the structure of the tank itself. Depending on the type of system, the average septic system needs to be cleaned every two years, and keeping your tank clean is crucial to ensuring that the entire system continues to work properly. That’s where we can help you! At Ardalta Vacuum Truck Services Ltd, we are committed to delivering high-quality septic cleaning services in Edmonton and Strathcona County.
A clean septic tank will ensure better surroundings and reduce significant health hazards that can affect the neighbourhood. However, if it is neglected, it can lead to an unpleasant odour, and the untreated wastewater might overflow into your yard. Reduce the risk of structural damage, such as cracks and leaks, by regular cleaning of the septic tank in Edmonton. Periodically pumping and cleaning your septic tank also depends on the size of the tank, the number of people using the system, and if a garburator is used in the kitchen. If a garburator is used in the kitchen, the bacteria in the tank will not be able to break down the solids, so the tank will need to be cleaned much more often.
Make sure you’re cleaning your cisterns every 3 years.
As the name suggests, holding tanks are tanks installed to hold wastewater. They usually have a capacity of 1000 to 3000 gallons and are suitable for places with limited space like smaller houses, trailers, RVs, or boats. Holding tanks can be made of plastic or concrete, and they are used to store wastewater until it is pumped out.
A holding tank merely stores the wastewater because it does not have a system to release the treated water. For that reason, it needs to be emptied regularly and transported to a treatment facility. If you need more details or require holding tank services in Edmonton, let us know. We’ll be right at your service.

Here, we present the basic liquid/solid layout of a septic tank. Wastewater enters the septic tank and separates into three layers:
Unlike a holding tank, a septic tank does not just hold wastewater. It is designed to release wastewater by allowing it to seep into the drain field. The process helps the septic tank to make room for additional waste, providing more long-term use than a holding tank. While both will require maintenance and pumping services, a septic tank can be pumped every 3-5 years, but a holding tank must be cleaned more frequently (approximately every 6-8 weeks.)
There are several risks of not cleaning the septic tank. The sludge from the tank can overflow into the drain field and back up into the house. This can cause severe damage to the entire plumbing system. Therefore regular cleaning of your septic tank is important to ensure that your system stays in working condition.
