What Could Happen if You Don’t Pump a Septic Tank?

In a word: disaster! When a septic tank gets full, it must be pumped. Otherwise, several problems could result. If the solids are allowed to buildup past a certain point, it can clog the mainline and cause sewage backup and other plumbing issues inside your home. You might have this problem if you hear gurgling sounds or smell sewer odors coming from your drains or have wastewater backing up in your sinks, tubs, and toilets.

Another issue that could result from an unpumped tank is solids being allowed to exit the tank and enter the drainfield, thus resulting in a clog. This will prevent the drainfield from working properly and lead to puddles of sewage on the surface of your lawn. Fortunately, these types of problems can be avoided through regular pumping. If it’s been a while since your septic system was last pumped, call our professional for a septic inspection.
