What are the signs that your septic tank is full?
- Unpleasant odor present – Nobody wants to smell the collection of waste water. That is a stench that is the subject of nightmares. We understand & resonate with this. The odor is emitted as the gasses collect. They need someplace to go. Unfortunately, it feels like they seek out your nostrils.
- Water pooling around septic tank location – So very often, when our customers call us for our septic pumping service the ground around their septic tanks is moist and can even feel like a thick swamp. Your septic system should be designed to manage a certain amount of ‘fullness,’ but then there is no other place to go other than into areas not designed to handle wastewater.
- Toilet doesn’t flush normally – Your sewer system is a pressurized system. Whether it is a residential sewer designed to remove wastewater safely in your home or a commercial sewer septic system designed to manage a large amount of waste in a concentrated span of time, your sewer septic system requires maintenance to match the rate of usage. Septic systems should enable your residential plumbing or commercial plumbing system to flow free. If it doesn’t, if your flush seems weak or the drainage is like molasses, it needs to be cleaned—it needs to be pumped.
- Sewer Backup – plumbing drainage issues are a tell-tale sign that your septic tank is full. Immediately look out at the drain field where the septic tank is located to see if you are able to view any other signs of a full septic system. If you are currently in a septic tank management program, you need to ensure that you have a qualified professional come out to assess the state of the waste tank & drain lines.
- Changes in your lawn – If you are seeing issues we’ve outlined above, please look out into your drainage field where your septic system is located. Look for over-greening of plants, grasses, as well as weeds. It looks almost like you dumped a bunch of fertilizer on your septic system. How awkward! Call us to take care of your septic system today! We are here for our customers within 3 hours.
How does it cost to have your septic pumped out?
Septic pumping services can range in price. The best thing to do is to ensure that you know exactly what state of health your septic tank & drainage system is in. We recommend annual inspections to make sure that you don’t run the risk of creating larger issues that can cost homeowners & property managers.
The cost is directly related to the scale of the need. If the tank is damaged and the drain field needs to repaired to correct against any leakage into the groundwater, the inherent costs are more than the implementation of a simple annual inspection system to understand what capacity remains.
Septic tank pumping is needed based on usage. Maybe your septic tank sees a lot of use, which would necessitate more regular pumping of the septic tank. Maybe your septic tank doesn’t see of lot of use, and thus wouldn’t need to be pumped as regularly. Your costs are going to be proportional.
Rush Plumbing, Heating and Air is able to give you a good estimate of the pumping and/or septic tank repair costs. For now, here is a good resource for some averages.
Maintaining Your Septic System
This section of our message here to you could also be titled, ‘how to keep your septic tank pumping costs to a minimum.’ Here is the first thing we like to say: don’t treat your toilet and septic system as a garbage disposal. It isn’t. Septic systems are quite efficient at managing wastewater. However, when the type of usage doesn’t conform to the design of the septic tank, plumbing problems arise.
The Environmental Protection Agency of the US Government has a great resource for helping you to make the most of your septic system.
Treating your septic tank with the right kinds of bacteria inducing agents helps to keep your waste solids broken down and viscous. That’s right, we just said viscous.
