What Happens If I Don’t Clean My Septic Tank?

There are certain aspects of taking care of a septic tank that is crucially important and will affect its ability to function, such as maintenance. A septic owner should know, and if not, then learn that an average septic tank should get pumped every 3-5 years. Over time, solid waste begins to accumulate inside your septic tank. You’re normally supposed to have it pumped by a septic company once it’s full, or before it reaches the outlet pipe. If the waste gathers into the pipe leading into the drain field, it can clog it, resulting in many septic failures which you have to pay to get fixed. Call Rooter Septic Services to schedule your septic tank pumping appointment today.

The Importance of Bacteria

Bacteria are the key workers in a septic tank. They do most, if not all of the work by breaking down solid waste and sludge, converting them to wastewater, and sending them to the drain field. Unfortunately, a common problem in septic tanks is the lack of good bacteria. There must be enough microorganisms in the septic tank for the waste to efficiently get sent into the drain field. A lack of bacteria will cause problems, such as overflowing of the septic tank and backups into your home.

Signs of Septic Failure

As we already mentioned, if you neglect septic tank pumping, it can lead to clogging of your outlet pipe. The problem is, you won’t be able to realize there’s a clog until your septic tank begins to malfunction. Luckily, there are signs that can let you know if you have a problem to take care of.

  • A foul smell around your house can mean that your septic tank is leaking. A septic tank may be messy and dirty, but the smell usually stays inside the tank. If you notice bad odors emerging from your septic tank, call a septic company and let them know you need septic tank repair.
  • Gurgling sounds coming from your pipes could be signs of a clog in the pipes. Find a way to unclog as soon as possible or call Rooter Septic Services.
  • If there are certain areas on your drain field that seem to be lusher and greener, it’s a sign of leaking.
  • Other signs include backups of wastewater into your drains, slow draining, and your septic tank overflowing.

Cost of Septic Tank Pumping

The cost of pumping your tank depends on the state you live in and the size of your septic tank. Overall, the costs range from $250 to $500.
