Why Do Septic Tanks Need To Be Pumped?

Once your septic tank is installed, it becomes the catch-all for the waste exiting your home. Inside the tank, the waste is separated into solids (sludge) and liquids (effluent). While the effluent — or wastewater — can be released into the ground safely, the sludge is toxic and must be removed and disposed of properly. That’s where we come in!

Our special equipment can remove the sludge from inside your septic tank and ensure that you have years of reliable waste management ahead of you. We then dispose of the waste at a special treatment facility that can deal with biosolids.

How Often Do I Need To Have My Septic Tank Pumped?

The frequency at which you need to have your septic tank pumped can vary according to the size of your tank, the volume of waste created and other factors. It’s always a good idea to consult with a professional to determine how frequently your tank should be pumped.

On average, you can expect to schedule a septic pumping appointment every 3-5 years. 

Signs Your Septic Tank Needs To Be Pumped

Your septic tank is one thing that should be treated with extreme caution, especially with the possibility of a sewage leak on the line! Most septic systems will begin to show some symptoms that they’re full before a complete disaster occurs, but you have to keep your eyes peeled to spot these signs!

  • Slow Drains — Your drains can be slow for many different reasons, but you never want to ignore this problem. Whether it’s a simple clog that can be removed or a sign that your septic system is getting full, you need to call a professional to handle the problem effectively. 
  • Foul Odor — As you can imagine, your septic tank holds some unpleasant gases inside from the breakdown of waste. The fuller the tank gets, the less room there is for those gases. You might start to smell those gases back up out of your drains into your home!
  • Overly Healthy Drainfield — The area of your lawn that is located above the wastewater pipes might suddenly become surprisingly or exceedingly green or lush. Make sure you call a professional as soon as you notice this to avoid a complete septic backup.
  • Standing Water — In the absence of rain or sprinklers, puddles of water around your septic system or drain field signify the escaping wastewater is backing up. Act immediately before that wastewater is replaced by sludge!

The most effective way to avoid these symptoms altogether is by following a pumping schedule given to you by a professional. Regular pumping should eliminate some of these risks and give you peace of mind.
