How to Know When You Need Septic Tank Pumping
Having your septic tank pumped periodically is important for the overall health of your septic system. Septic tank pumping ensures that solid waste deposits on the bottom and top of your septic take get removed and helps to extend the life of your septic tank. But, how do you know when it is time to have your septic tank pumped? Below we will discuss several signs that it is time to have your septic tank pumped.

 

• Sluggish – If you notice that your toilets, tubs, and sinks are slower to drain it is most likely time for septic tank pumping.

• Odor – When your septic tank fills up there is no place for gases to go, so they seep into your home through your toilets and drains. There can also be a smell around your drain field and septic tank area.

• Time – Most septic tanks need to be pumped every one to three years. We recommend speaking to a septic professional to get on a routine schedule.

• Standing water – A sure sign that you need your septic tank pumped is standing water near the septic tank and drain field. If you see this occurring, then you need to call a septic company immediately.

• Sewage backup – The most unpleasant sign that you need your septic tank pumped is sewage backing up into your home.

All homeowners need to have their septic tanks pumped. If you aren’t on a routine schedule, then you might notice one of these signs above. Don’t wait until it is too late. Give Southeastern Septic LLC a call today to schedule your septic tank pumping.
