if its looked after, you should never need to get it pumped, been here 6 yrs and previous house 7 yrs and never needed to get it pumped, as long as you look after it. a certain amount of paper is ok, bacteria will digest cellulose as long as not excessive. if you are having to get it pumped out every few years its either very very small or its not been looked after

As he has been doing it for many years, long before I bought the place, I see no reason to stop him, and it would seem that this the normal procedure, here in my neck of the woods. :dontknow:
I can't do great things, so I do little things with love.
