Septic Systems: 4 Signs That Your Septic Tank Needs To Be Pumped

Dennis Jenkins

When you live in a home with a septic system, it is important to be mindful of the waste levels in your septic tank. While regular septic tank inspections are very important, it may be possible for your septic tank to fill up sooner than expected. You need to know the signs on a septic tank that is nearing or has reached capacity so you can arrange for septic system pumping services before you experience a sewage backup. Some of the common signs of a nearly full septic tank include:

Foul Odors

Since a septic tank holds waste, it naturally has a bad smell. As the tank fills up, all of the waste rises closer to the surface of the ground. When this happens, it is not uncommon to be able to smell the pungent stench of sewage. If you begin noticing foul odors when out in your yard or emitting from the drains in your home, it is in your best interest to contact a septic system pumping company in a timely matter

Unexplained Pools of Water

If there hasn't been any heavy rain in your area but you're seeing pools of water in your yard, you may have a problem with your septic tank. When there is no more room in your septic tank, solid waste can begin to cause clogs in the drain field, which forces liquid waste to the surface. As the septic tank gets fuller, more and more liquid waste will be forced to the surface of the drain field, causing pools or water to form. If this happens in your yard, keep children and pets away from the liquid waste, and call a septic system services company.

Problems with Drains

When a septic tank is full, there really isn't anywhere for the waste from your home to go. Drains may become slow, and there may be issues with your toilet flushing properly. If you have problems with more than one drain or toilet at the same time, it is most likely an issue with your septic system and a clear sign that your septic tank needs to be pumped.

Unusually Green Patches of Grass

Pay attention to the grass that grows in the drain field of your septic tank. If patches of grass that are unusually green and healthy begin growing, it may be a sign that waste in the drain field is beginning to rise to the surface and fertilize the grass. 

To have your septic tank pumped, contact a company like Dixie Drainfields Inc.
