Is this a pump you use to pump out the septic tank for periodic cleaning? Or some integral part of the plumbing of the house?

Bill raises an excellent question in the post above.
The last house I lived in had a septic tank, and the field lines were at a higher elevation than the tank, so there was a pump in it to pump the effluent to the field lines. Is this what you're referring to in your original post?
Interesting thing on septic tanks: they are living biological things, and when they are healthy and full of the good bacteria and enzymes, a septic tank never needs to be emptied by a pump truck. Healthy septic tanks chew through and dissolve the solids. In that last house I lived in, 10 years and I never had it pumped. Growing up in my parents house, 30 years and it was never emptied by a pump truck. There are two keys to achieving a healthy septic tank, and 1) is to not put things down the drain that kill bacteria, like bleach, chemical household cleaners, antimicrobial soaps, etc. 2) dose a septic tank regularly with a septic treatment. I use Bio-safe One septic treatment in my new house I currently reside in, and I did for the ten years in the previous house. I'm not trying to make a sales pitch, just offering the name of what I've been using that has given me reliable and effective results. Hope this helps!!
