When it’s Time for Septic Tank PumpingMost people flush or pour waste down the drain without a second thought. You might be like this, too. If you are, it’s important to understand what’s going on with your septic tank and when it’s time for septic tank pumping. There are several signs that indicate an issue with your septic tank, and it is essential to catch any issues before they develop into bigger problems.

  • • Slow drains: If your pipes and drains are working properly, you should be able to quickly flush and drain water and waste through your sinks, toilets, and showers without any problems. But water and waste won’t be able to flow through easily with a clogged septic system.
  • • Odors: Accumulating waste can result in a buildup of gases. Normally, your septic tank will hold these smells inside, so if you’re finding that your house is being filled with sewage odors, then it’s time to call for septic tank pumping.
  • • Sewage backup: Your septic system is designed to take all the waste and smells away from your home. Slow drains and odors are some signs of sewage backup, but it can also be accompanied with foul, discolored water backing up in your toilet or shower.
  • • Pooled water: Septic tank issues can also be identified from water pooling in your yard. This can happen around the area of the underground septic tank and drain field. Sometimes the grass can even become much greener than the rest of the lawn. This is because of an increase of liquids and fertilization, and it’s not the kind that you want.

If you’re experiencing any of these issues or just want to be extra careful, give us a call at Southeastern Septic LLC today to schedule septic tank pumping.
