Septic Pumping FAQs

WE have the answers for your questions

How Often Should I Have My Septic Tank Pumped?

The amount of maintenance your septic tank requires is determined by how often you use it. Homes that have more guests and use their plumbing often will need to have their septic tank pumped more than other households. We generally recommend having your septic tank system pumped every 3-5 years, depending on how much it is used throughout the year. 
 

How To Tell If Your Septic Tank System Needs Immediate Pumping Or Repairs

  • Pooling Water: If no action is taken, you will begin to notice that a pool of water will take over your plush patch of grass. Your septic tank is significantly overgrown, and needs immediate pumping or repairs.
  • Slow Drains: If you notice that the drains throughout your home are slow to drain and your toilets are slow to flush, it could be just a clogged drain. However, if the problem persists after drain cleaning services, have your septic tank inspected to see if it is full. 
  • Odors: If you notice odor and discolored water throughout your home, call a septic tank inspection company, it is time for a septic tank service call. 
  • Sewer Backup: This is the most obvious and disgusting sign that your septic system is full; when you flush and sewage comes back up, call a septic tank cleaning company immediately.
