How Often Should Septic Tanks Be Pumped?

In 35 years we've only needed to pump our septic tank once.  However, I've heard they should be pumped every 4 to 5 years.  Is there any truth to this?  We have t3- bathroom home in Texas with the usual dishwasher and disposer in the kitchen, washer and dryer, etc.
