Why should you have your septic tank cleaned?  Over time solids build up in your septic tank.  As the tank fills with solids, the layer of clean water gets smaller and contains more solid particles.  The outlet baffles often do a good job by keeping most of the solids from reaching the drainage area, but they cannot filter out everything. The increase in solids increases the chance of solids reaching your drain field. Solids clog up the holes in the drainage pipes, the stones, and surrounding soil, so much that ultimately the water can no longer disperse into the ground. Eventually the drain field fails and now you have big problems.  Regular cleaning of your septic tank removes everything giving it a fresh start and will prolong the life of your drain field.
