Septic Pumping & Cleaning in Glens Falls and Saratoga

Depending on the number of family members living in your home, it’s important to have your septic tank pumped every two to five years to prevent backups and extend the life of your septic system. Over time, too much solid waste builds up on the bottom of the septic tank, reducing the ability of microorganisms and bacteria to break it down. The excess sludge must be pumped out to ensure the health of the tank and its drain field.

The Action Septic family has been providing both routine septic pumping and emergency service in the Glens Falls-Saratoga region for nearly 50 years.


To schedule a cleaning or request emergency service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, call 518-587-4444.
