Check with us before you pay for a brand new system. We have successfully repaired many systems other companies have considered beyond repair. Here are a few tell-tale signs that your septic system may need to be pumped.
- Pooling water. The first sign that your septic system needs to be serviced is pooling water. When the septic system is working as it should, waste water remains underground and out of sight.
- Foul odors. Use your sense of smell to help you determine how full your septic tank is. If you’re outside and you notice unnaturally stinky smells, especially around the drain field or above your septic tank, it might need to be serviced.
- Slow drains. When drains in your home become slow it’s not just inconvenient, it’s an indication that you might need your septic tank pumped.
- Sewage backup. No one wants to see sewage backing up into their sinks, bathtubs or toilets, but an overly-full septic tank causes this to happen.
- Drain field grass health. If the grass around the septic system is lush and considerably greener than other areas, it could be time to get your septic tank pumped. When this happens, it typically means that liquid from your system is rising excessively.
