How To Tell You Need Septic Tank Pumping

Too many people leave their septic tanks untouched by professionals until they start to notice a problem. But it’s so important to have your home’s septic tank pumped regularly so that you don’t have to deal with the potential impact of a full tank. Repairing septic tank problems after sewage has already leaked into the yard is never ideal. Pay attention to the signs that you may need to hire someone to pump your septic tank, and start scheduling regular services today.

Set a Regular Schedule

We strongly recommend that you set a schedule for regular septic tank pumping with your plumber. Keep a calendar reminder on your phone, computer, or annual planner so that you know when to take care of it. For most homes, every two years is a safe bet. But depending on the size of your tank and the amount of use your plumbing system sees, you may need to do it more or less often. Ask a professional plumber for help setting a septic tank service schedule.

Look for These Signs

If you’re not sure how long it has been since your last service, look out for these common signs that a septic tank should be pumped.

  • A wet yard: When water moves into the leech field that drains into your yard, it should not turn into a flood. If water is pooling on your property, it’s a sure sign that your septic tank is full, especially if accompanied by odors.
  • Foul odors: Foul odors around the septic tank area or in the home could indicate the need for service. Call a technician right away if you suspect a sewage leak.
  • Slow drains and toilets: A backed up septic tank may cause toilets and sinks to drain slowly—or even to overflow. This is why it’s so important to get on a regular schedule with your plumbing company!
