Depending on the size of your household and your septic tank capacity, it should be pumped every year for maximum leach field protection. Not pumping your septic tank on a regular basis will cause significant problems. Affordable Pumping Services can help you get on a regular pumping schedule, which will ultimately save you time and money. Let’s look at the benefits of pumping your septic tank regularly.
Avoid Sluggish Flushing and Draining
A septic tank that is overflowing or not properly maintained will cause drains to flow much slower and less efficiently. This can also lead to other costly problems like clogged toilets and drains.
Avoid an Overgrown Lawn
You may be surprised to hear that a sign of an overflowing septic tank is a lush green lawn over the area of the tank. If you notice your grass is a little greener than usual in one area of your lawn, it’s probably getting help from some extra “fertilizer.” Call Affordable Pumping Service right away for a septic tank inspection.
Avoid Standing Water
When your septic tank is full, water can pool not only over the tank and drainfield but also other areas of your property. Pooling water is a major sign that you need to have your septic tank inspected and most likely pumped.
Avoid Sewage Backup
Sewage backup in your house and property can occur when your septic tank is filled and not pumped on a regular schedule. This is the worst side effect of an overflowing septic tank anyone can experience. Raw sewage is full of bacteria and smells terrible and needs to be cleaned by professionals. Ignoring your septic tank is not only dangerous, but it can lead to a costly repair and cleanup.
Pumping your septic tank regularly can help you avoid all these possible problems and ensure that you have a functioning, healthy septic system. To make an appointment to have your septic tank pumped, call Affordable Pumping Services today.
