Signs It Is Time To Pump

Signs your septic pump needs to be pumped out:

  • Slow or frequently clogged drains
  • Sewage backup
  • Regular gurgling noises
  • Strong foul odors coming from your yard
  • Standing water over your septic tank

It is VERY IMPORTANT to pump your septic tank every 3-5 years. This standard is set by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency).

  • Remove solid waste that forms at the bottom of the tank. These solids will build up and reach the pipe that feeds into the drain field, causing a clog that can start backing up into your home 
  • Increases the overall life and efficiency of your system and prevents major issues from occurring
  • Modern septic systems have a working life of approximately 25 years. Fortunately, by scheduling a routine septic inspection and making repairs as needed, you can usually add a decade or more to the lifespan of your home’s septic system

NOTE: These factors impact whether you should pump once a year or every few years include: 

  • The size of your tank
  • The number of people at home
  • What you are flushing down your toilet
  • How often your household is adding to the system
  • If you use a garbage disposal
