Signs That You Need Septic Tank Pumping
Pooling Water. The first sign that your septic system needs to be pumped, serviced, or repaired is pooling water. This can occur in many areas, but pay particular attention to the lawn in and around the drain field. Pooling water is one indication that the tank is full. When the septic system is working properly, waste water remains underground and out of sight.
Foul odors. The environment around you smells foul. Household wastewater includes all water that you send down a drain. It consists of water from kitchen and bathroom sinks, bathtubs, dishwasher, clothes washer, and of course, the toilet! As the tank becomes full, it emits foul smelling odors.
Drain field grass health. When your septic system works properly, the grassy area above the drain field will appear just as healthy as the grass in the other lawn locations. If, however, the grass is lush and considerably greener than the other areas, it could be time to get your septic tank pumped.
Slow Drains. Toilet or water pressure is abnormal.
Nitrate concentration. Well water with unhealthy levels of nitrates is the last sign that your septic system needs serviced. To determine how healthy your water is, simply test it!
Why Do Septic Tanks Need Pumped?
Maintaining a properly functioning septic tank system helps decrease repair costs. Why? Because the wastewater forms 3 layers inside the tank. Solids that are lighter than water (such as grease and oils) float to the top forming a layer of scum. Solids that are heavier than water settle at the bottom of the tank which forms a layer of sludge. This leaves a middle layer of partially clarified wastewater. The layers of sludge and scum remain in the septic tank where bacteria (found naturally in the wastewater) work to break down the solids. The sludge and scum that cannot be broken down are retained in the tank until you do your septic tank pumping. So, leaving the scum and sludge in the tank too long can make it harder to pump. The sludge may even have to be broken down by hand before the pumping process can begin, which will increase the cost of pumping your septic tank.
So, pumping your septic tank every 3-5 years keeps the sludge at a low level, decreasing the chance of repair costs, and higher pumping costs.
Prevent Septic Tank Repairs
Septic tank pumping every 3-5 years prevents an excess build up of the sludge (hardened poo) which causes the tank to back up, leaving it no choice but to leak the solid waste into the drain fields and cause sewage problems.
When solid waste starts leaking into the drain fields, it keeps the drain fields from releasing the intended wastewater.
Clean or Replace the filter regularly (recommended yearly). The filter helps reduce the particle matter and suspended solids before they enter each drain (or leach) field.
Take care not to flush things like hair combings, coffee grounds, dental floss, disposable diapers, kitty litter, sanitary napkins, tampons, cigarette butts, condoms, gauze bandages, fat, grease, oil, or paper towels.
Don’t flush chemicals that could contaminate surface and groundwater such as paints, varnishes, thinners, waste oils, photographic solutions, or pesticides.
