Your septic tank needs regular maintenance. A lot of people do not want to spend the money to have their septic tank pumped, but then they regret it when they have major problems that are expensive to fix. If you look at it in the long run, residential septic pumping is going to save you money because you will avoid costly repairs in the future.
Professionals recommend that you have your septic tank pumped every three to five years, depending on the size of your household. The more people you have creating waste and wastewater, the faster your tank will fill up. If you do not know when the last time your septic tank was pumped, there are a few signs you can look for that indicate your tank needs to be pumped.
If you notice a bad smell coming from your drains or if your drains are slow to drain, it could indicate that your tank is getting full. A full tank will prevent wastewater from draining properly and could cause your drains to back up. Bacteria can grow in drains that are backed up and cause them to smell. Pooling water could also be full of bacteria and can be hazardous to your health.
Residential septic pumping is critical to keep your tank in working order. If you do not have your septic tank pumped out, then it will overflow. Sewage can back up into your home and cause a lot of problems. Disaster cleanup will need to come clean up the mess and you will most likely have to pay to have flooring, drywall and even furniture replaced. It will also cause a lot of damage to your septic system and you may even need to replace your entire septic system.
