Top Signs You Need Septic Tank PumpingIf you have a septic tank, you’re probably aware of the maintenance, such as cleaning and pumping. Septic tank pumping should be done periodically, but there are other instances where you should have your septic tank pumped. To help guide you, here are the top signs that you need septic tank pumping.

• Sewage Backup – One of the most obvious signs that you need your septic tank pumped is if you are experiencing any kind of sewage backup. Sewage backing up into your home will be obvious and will come with a smell. If you are experiencing any sewage issues, contact a professional immediately to get your septic tank pumped.

• Standing Water in Your Drain Field – Your drain field is a place where wastewater is released slowly to reduce the rate at which the tank fills. There should never be standing water in your drain field. If you have standing water, contact a professional immediately. Standing water in your drain field can be caused by an overfilled tank.

• Bad Smell Indoors or Outdoors – An overfilled septic tank leads to bad odors both indoors and outdoors. If you notice a bad smell coming from your plumbing, have your septic tank inspected and pumped as soon as possible.

• It’s Been a While – You should have your septic tank pumped periodically depending on your water usage factors. If it’s been a while in general, schedule to have your tank pumped today.

We hope these signs will help you indicate when you’re in need of septic tank pumping. If you have any questions regarding septic tank pumping, and the services we provide, contact us today at Southeastern Septic LLC for more information.
