What Are The Signs My Septic Tank Needs Pumping?

Your septic tank plays a vital role in managing wastewater from your home. Over time, solid waste and scum can accumulate in the tank, necessitating regular pumping. Here are some signs that your septic tank may be due:

  • An Unexpectedly Lush Lawn - Is your yard suddenly the most verdant and gorgeous on the block, particularly the grass right above your septic tank? Raw sewage is an excellent fertilizer, so that surprising look is likely the result of that sewage leaking out because your tank is too full.
  • Slow Drains: If you notice slow drainage in your sinks, showers, or toilets, it could be a sign that your septic tank is nearing its capacity. As the tank fills up, it becomes less efficient at processing wastewater.
  • Foul Odors: Unpleasant odors emanating from your drains or around the septic tank area can indicate a full tank. These odors result from the buildup of decomposing waste that needs to be removed. If you can't stand enjoying time outside because of the funk, get your tank checked.
  • Pooling Water: Much like the greener grass mentioned above, a leaking tank could also give you standing water on your lawn. If you see water pooling in your yard or around the septic tank, it could indicate that your tank is overflowing. This is a clear indication that it's time for septic tank pumping.
  • Gurgling Pipes: Gurgling or bubbling sounds in your plumbing doesn't mean your house is possessed, but it can be a sign of a septic tank issue. If your septic tank is too full, back pressure moving through your pipes can get quite mouthy.

Even if you think it hasn't been long enough since your last septic tank pumping, if you notice any of the issues you should contact us to have service scheduled immediately before bigger problems develop.

What Are Some Of The Benefits Of Regular Septic Tank Pumping?

Take care of your septic tank and it will take care of you, processing your wastewater appropriately and preventing any major plumbing issues in your home. But there are other benefits to making sure you have timely pumping services performed. Regular pumping will help to prevent a system failure by removing accumulated solids that could otherwise damage the unit. You'll also enjoy a longer total lifespan for your system, with less costly repairs down the line. From a community standpoint, a well-maintained septic tank is good for the environment, lowering the risk of contaminants leaching into the soil or groundwater and affecting their overall quality.
