A septic tank serves as an environmentally-friendly means to get rid of your wastewater. Septic systems are very convenient if your house is situated away from the city’s sewage system.

A septic tank gathers wastewater from your sinks, drains, and washing machines and empties it into a drain field. Septic tanks require care and maintenance as they have a limited capacity to withhold wastewater. Excessive wastewater can damage your septic and plumbing systems.

Let’s look at some signs you may need to urgently empty your septic tank.

  1. Pooling Water

An important sign that your septic tank needs emptying is water pooling around the septic system drain field. Make sure to have your septic system emptied at the earliest if you notice water pooling on or around your septic tank.

  1. Gurgling Sounds

Do not ignore gurgling sounds coming from any of your pipes. Gurgling sounds from your water pipes suggest the possibility of an overfilled septic tank. Pump your septic tank immediately to prevent the problem from growing.

  1. Wastewater Backflow

A full septic tank may cause the wastewater to flow back into your tubs, sinks, and toilets through the pipes. Sinks and drains closest to the tank are most susceptible to wastewater backflow.

  1. Foul Odors

A foul odor in your lawn’s septic drain field indicates that your septic tank is overfilled with wastewater. You may also notice foul smells in your home’s sinks and drains due to an overfilled septic tank.

The foul smells may also be due to plumbing problems. Ensure professional septic or plumbing services to indicate the source of the problem.

  1. Lawn Moisture

Does the grass in your lawn appear to be greener and lusher than usual? Excessively green grass may suggest wastewater leakage from your septic tank. Make sure to empty your tank on time to prevent further damages.

  1. Clogged Drains

Slow and clogged drains generally suggest the need for plumbing. However, if the drains remain clogged despite your attempts at unclogging, then chances are that your septic tank needs pumping.

  1. Flushing Problems

You may experience trouble flushing your toilets despite ensuring proper plumbing measures. Flushing problems are an indication that your septic tank needs emptying.

Ensure regular septic system inspection and maintenance services for efficient removal of wastewater and to keep your plumbing system intact.
