Signs Your Septic Tank Is Full
The most important aspect of maintaining your septic system is regular pumping. While experts generally recommend pumping a septic tank every three to five years, the frequency of service will depend on your specific septic system and water usage. When a system is not pumped often enough, it may start to exhibit some problems. Make sure to take a look at our 5-star reviews and see what everyone is saying!
There are several signs that your septic system is full and in need of pumping, including:
- Standing water – If you notice pooling in various places around your yard, including around the septic tank or drainfield, it is a sure sign that your septic system needs to be pumped and inspected immediately.
- Sewage backup – A septic system that’s too full will eventually result in raw sewage backing up into a home or business, something no one ever wants to experience. If you have sewage backup issues, contact Mountain Septic immediately for fast and effective pumping services.
- Sewer odors – A full septic tank usually causes sewage smells to emanate from toilets and drains. The odors can also seep through a drainfield, resulting in sulfurous smells around the outside of your property. The only way to get rid of these odors is to have your septic system pumped.
- Sluggish drains and toilets – A septic system that’s backing up can cause your drains to not go down as quickly. It can also keep your toilet from flushing as quickly and thoroughly as it should. Having your system pumped can resolve these issues and prevent even costlier problems.
- Extra green patches of grass – Although you might think of greener grass as being a good thing, it can actually be a sign of septic system failure. If your tank is too full, it could result in greener sections of grass because excess waste liquid is acting as a fertilizer. If your system’s drainfield has recently become more distinguishable because the grass is greener and lusher, it’s time to call for service.
