Septic tanks are so important for proper waste removal, which means if you’re not taking care of yours, you might just be in for some big trouble real soon. Simply neglecting to get your septic tank pumped often enough can lead to solids spilling into your septic fields, blocked pipes, soil/groundwater contamination, and other threats that can lead to costly system repairs/replacements. Lucky for you though, ROOT-A-WAY Drain Cleaning has answers and solutions for every possible septic tank question and problem. All you need to do is know when to reach out!
How Often Should You Get Your Septic Tank Pumped?
One of the first things you need to know before you can determine how often you should take advantage of our powerful septic tank pumping services is what size tank you have. Once you know that you make note of how many people on average are using the facilities daily, and what other kinds of other solids are making it into your septic tank, such as food scraps from kitchen disposal systems to come up with a rough estimate. For example, a septic tank that can hold up to 1,000 gallons of waste may not need to be pumped for up to 12 years in a single person household, whereas the same tank used by a large family may need to be pumped every two years or so – and vacation properties or other properties not often used will last even longer between pumps. Just knowing these basic things will help you determine exactly when you need to give us a call.
How Do You Know When It’s Time To Pump Your Septic Tank?
Think you might need to have your septic tank pumped? There are quite a few obvious signs you should definitely know so that you can be sure. Foul, sewage-like odors or flooding coming from your septic field or tank, for instance, are pretty big signs that something not so good is up with your septic tank. You may also notice backflow of equally foul, discolored wastewater in your toilet, showers, or tubs. Not all the signs are so bad though. A near undetectable sign of a full septic tank is particularly lush vegetation near your tank or field caused by the surplus of what is essentially powerful fertilizer. Or, if you have a newer septic tank, you might just get an alert from your septic tank via red light indication or audible buzzing. Once you have a good idea of how often you need to have your system pumped, you won’t even need to look out for these signs anymore – you’ll just know when it’s time for us to pay you a visit.
