It is important to your home and your septic system to have septic pumping done routinely and on time. Septic pumping will empty your septic tank of sludge to allow room for future byproducts. Below are five signs it’s time for septic pumping:
- Smell – When your septic is full of sludge, the stinky smells start to escape. You may notice a sulfur or sewer smell around your toilets, drains, or outside near your septic system.
- Slow Drains or Flushing – When it is past time to have your septic pumping done, you may notice that your sinks and toilets drain slowly or that your toilet flushes slower than normal.
- Lush Lawn – It usually isn’t a bad thing to have a lush, green lawn. But if your lawn is overly lush and green over your drain field, it is probably time to have septic pumping done.
- Backup – If your sewer begins to back up into your home, it is definitely time to have your septic tank pumped and inspected.
- Pooling Water – If you notice standing water pooling up in your yard, then you may be due for a septic pumping. It is likely your septic tank is full.
