Signs You Need Septic Pumping

  1. Bad odors – As septic tanks gets overfull, gases may start coming from your drains, toilets, and drain field area. When you smell an unpleasant odor, give us a call and we can inspect it. 
  2. Slow drains – If your drains, tubs, showers, and toilets are draining slower than usual. We suggest giving us a call to inspect, as you may need septic pumping or something else, but you don’t want to leave slow drains unattended.
  3. Sewage backups –When this happens, it is very unpleasant and you need to schedule a pumping service immediately.
  4. Standing water—When a septic tank gets full, water can start to collect in different places on your property. Inspecting your drain field and around the septic tank itself is a very good practice. If you find water showing up anywhere it doesn’t usually collect, give us a call.
  5. Patch of green lawn – When grass over your drain field is greener and healthier than the rest of your lawn, you might have septic problem and we suggest a visit to diagnose.
  6. Nitrate content in well water – If your home relies on well water,  you don’t want wastewater leaching into it.
