Q:

A few minutes ago someone called in to ask about pumping his septic tank, that he had been told it should be pumped every 4 years, then someone else said every 2 years. Don't remember where he was located, but we're in central Texas, and in 35 years we've needed to pump our septic tank only one time. We have three bathrooms and the usual dishwasher and disposer in the kitchen, as well as a washing machine, etc.
