Signs You Need Septic Pumping in Durham
Septic service warning signs are not many but none of them are very appealing. Brantley Septic is the most affordable and experienced company in Durham, and we’re the professionals in spotting a bad septic tank.
Pooling Water. Pooling water is one of the biggest signs, especially if it is a regular occurrence. If you notice excess water pooling around the area near your septic tank, then it needs to be pumped. Additionally, exess moisture from your tank can cause the grass near your septic tank to be particularly lush and overgrown in comparison to the other areas of your property. If you see this, then septic service is required.
Bad Smells. When you walk outside are you greeted with a striking odor? If it smells like number 2, it’s probably the septic tank overflowing. This is a sign of a blocked drain and it needs to be pumped ASAP or it could back up inside the home.
Sewage Backup. Sewage backup is one of the most troublesome signs, and if it’s come to this, you’re likely in need of our services immediately. When wastewater begins backing up into your sinks, bathtub, or basement, it’s a definite sign your sewage system has failed. Sewage backup is hazardous to anyone in the home, so don’t wait to call.
Slow Drain. If you’ve noticed slow bathtub drains, sink drains, and toilets, this could be a sign that your septic tank is full and in need of pumping. If retail drain unclogging products isn’t working, and plungers haven’t helped, it’s time to contact a professional for help emptying your septic tank.
Gurgling Noises. This is self-explanatory, but it’s another apparent sign your septic tank is in need of service. Don’t ignore the sound!
How Often to Service Your Durham Septic Tank?
If you are new owner of a septic system, you may not know how often your sewer or septic need to be serviced. For homes without a garbage disposal, your septic tank should be pumped and serviced at least every three years. If your home has a garbage disposal, you should have it pumped annually. Don’t skip regular maintenance as it may save you thousands in the long run. Furthermore, not only will it save you money, but it will guarantee that your family (pets included) aren’t exposed to dangerous wastewater in the home or outside from pooling water. Regular pumping eliminates solids which escape and clog the soil pores of your home’s drain field.
