If you plan consistent septic system pumping, you shouldn’t notice any problems with your system not draining unless you run into clogged plumbing pipes.

Signs Your Septic Tank Needs to Be Pumped

Sometimes you fill your septic system’s solids tank faster than expected. Whether your business recently added more team members, or you got more washroom traffic than you were expecting, here are signs you should call for local septic pumping services immediately:

  • Pools of water on the lawn. Overfull septic systems often saturate the ground or leak where they’re not supposed to. Arriving at work to regular pools of standing water means it’s time to call in the pros.
  • Something stinks. You shouldn’t be able to smell your septic tank when everything functions properly. If you can smell sewage, your tank is leaking or overflowing. In severe cases, waste may back up through your drains and into your business.
  • Nothing’s flushing. If your toilet waste has nowhere to go, it can result in many different problems. These include toilets not flushing all the way, draining and refilling slowly, or making a gurgling noise when they run.
  • The grass is greener. Sometimes, an overly healthy lawn is a bad thing. Unexpectedly green grass could mean water is overflowing somewhere it shouldn’t. Keep an eye out for deep green grass over or around your septic tank site.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to check if your septic tank is full:

Your system may have a built-in alarm that alerts you when the tank is ready to be pumped out. You should schedule regular pumping based on your waste volume. Schedule pumping immediately if you notice standing water in your septic tank or drain field area, or several clogged drains and toilets.

Do you have to pump out a septic tank?

Yes. Septic systems don’t have any way to drain the sludge filtered out of wastewater, so it’s stored in the septic tank. Tanks need to be emptied regularly, or they’ll overflow and cause problems with your plumbing and landscaping.

How often to pump a septic tank?

Most businesses need their septic tank pumped every one to three years, depending on system size, number of tanks, and wastewater flow. If your company has a large staff or uses a lot of water, pump out your tank every two years or less.
