What Happens If You Don't Pump Your Septic Tank?
Septic systems are incredibly efficient and useful for homeowners who are not connected to a centralized sewer system. These onsite sewage treatment facilities free homeowners from regular sewer bills but maintenance is still required. Septic tank pumping is easily the most important maintenance item. Without timely septic tank pumping, your septic system could be compromised and cost you hundreds if not thousands of dollars in repair, replacement, and/or land restoration expenses. Luckily, professionals like those at Septic Connection are experts with the necessary equipment and expertise to handle septic pumping for you. Pumping your septic tank does not have to be a hassle. Septic Connection offers competitive prices, quick response times, and exceptional customer service.
How Often Should Your Septic Tank Be Pumped?
We all like to have specific answers and schedules. Unfortunately, the frequency of your septic tank pumping is not set in stone. It depends on a range of factors. The size of your septic tank, the size of your household, the working condition of your septic system, and your usage all affect how often you should pump your septic tank. However, the average household will generally need to have their tank pumped once every two to three years. Surely, larger septic tanks can go four and maybe even five years before a pump while large households may need to have their septic tank pumped annually or biennially.
If you are not sure when your septic tank was last pumped, you can call the experts at Septic Connection to have your system inspected. We can check the sludge and waste levels to estimate when your next pump might be due. You can also get the septic pumping out of the way by scheduling an appointment today.
The Risks of Neglecting Your Septic Tank Pumping
Septic tanks are a specific size measured in gallons. Usually, households have septic tanks that range between 1000 to 2000 gallons. Being limited in volume, the septic tank will eventually fill. If you fail to pump the septic tank, you could experience consequences from inconveniences to major damage to your septic system. For example, you may have sewage backups and odors in your home. You could also see your septic system fail as waste and sludge creep into inlet and outlet pipes, cracking pipes and leaking sewage on your property.
If you notice foul odors in your home from drains or see puddles of stinky water in your yard, then you might have a big problem on your hands. Call the professionals at Septic Connection to get to the root of the problem as soon as possible.
