How do you know?

Can someone tell me the intervals in which a septic tank needs to be pumped. Ours is about 3 years old and has never been touched. Just two people living in the house right now. It's a 1200 gallon tank. I've read horror stories about going out with a stick and shoving it done in the tank and measuring the scum, water, and sediment layers but this has me just a little "grossed" out. I'd rather go by time if that is possible. Do you all use a septic additive? I heard they can do more harm than good....Thanks for any input.
