4 Indicators It’s Time for Septic Tank Pumping

worker pumping household septic tank

Septic tanks are often out of sight and out of mind. It usually isn’t until they cause a problem that they become front of mind. No one wants to deal with a septic tank backup into their home or business – it is much more preferrable to stay ahead of these problems with regular septic tank pumping and maintenance. Here are some factors to be aware of that can indicate its time for septic tank pumping.

1. Length of Time Since Last Pumping

There is not a set amount of time for septic tank pumping frequency, as it depends on the size of the tank and the amount of waste processed. However, most homes will need maintenance every 3-4 years and businesses may need pumping a few times a year.

2. Big Event Coming Soon

Do you have a family reunion planned at your home for the holidays? Anytime you know that your septic tank is about to be overused, consider whether it may be time for a pumping. If it has been a while since your last service, preventive maintenance can ensure you will not overflow your tank during your big event.

3. Slow Drains

If your toilets seem to be slow to flush or you have several drains that are sluggish, you could be getting close to a sewage backup. While there are other plumbing issues that can cause slow drains, it is a good idea to have your septic tank pumped and checked.

4. Changes in Use

When you suddenly have more people living in your home for extended periods of time, you should consider moving up your next septic tank service. You may have been able to pump every three years with four people in your home, but if you now have six, it may be every two years instead.
