Having a septic tank on your property is an efficient and cost-effective way to deal with waste. However, septic systems need regular maintenance in order to work without a problem. If you have a septic system in your home, septic pumping is something you can’t go without. Here are a few signs that indicate you need to get septic pumping done as soon as possible:
- Some septic systems are backed by an alert system that lets you know when the system needs to be pumped. If you notice there is a light flashing or siren sounding, get your system pumped.
- Can you barely stand to be in your backyard because of the smell? Foul or unpleasant odors surrounding your system indicate that it’s time to get your system pumped.
- When your septic tank is full, you may find that your toilets are backed up and won’t seem to flush no matter how many times you plunge them.
- If it’s been a few years since you had septic pumping done, you should put this on your to-do list. Homeowners should generally have their system pumped every three to five years, even if it appears to be working fine.
- When your septic system needs to be pumped, you may find that there are small puddles of water throughout your yard or an abundance of smelly water surrounding the tank.
