Septic System Pumping Is Recommended At Least Every 3-5 Years Or Sooner
You might be thinking that 3-5 years or sooner for the pumping of septic tanks is a bit excessive. Truthfully, it isn’t. You see, septic systems are created to keep solid waste in the tank and let the liquid drain out. When there are too many solid particles in the septic tank, it can leak into your drain field and cause an entire host of expensive problems.
It is best to avoid all of this by having a company like All Septic & Sewer pump your system every 3-5 years. If you are noticing symptoms of your tank being overly full, you may need to have this service performed sooner than the recommended time-frame.
Determining which part of the 3-5 years your septic system falls into is different for every household. Factors like how many people reside in the home and tank size are things to consider.
Summary – Keeping your septic system properly pumped will save you money and stress in the long run.
We Pump For Maintenance And Emergency Situations
Sometimes, your septic system needs emergency intervention. When there is simply no more time to wait and you need help now, turn to All Septic & Sewer. We are committed to tackling your septic system needs at any time, day or night.
Let’s take a look at some of the top reasons many folks need emergency septic system pumping:
- Sewage Backup – When you notice the distinct smell of sewage rising from your pipes and trickling out of your drains, it’s safe to assume you’ve got a problem. If you discover that your drains are gurgling and a foul black substance is backing up into your toilet, shower, and sinks, it’s time to immediately call a professional.
- Alarm Is Going Off – Septic system alarms are put into place to alert you when there is a problem. Don’t ignore your alarm. The alarm could be going off because the amount of water being used in your home or office has significantly increased and your system is having trouble processing the waste OR you could have a leak and your tank may be taking on groundwater.
- Nitrate Concentration – Consumers who use a well need to have their water tested for nitrates on a consistent basis. When nitrate levels are too high this can be a result of your septic system being too full and leaching into soil and groundwater.
- Drain Field Pooling – If you notice puddles and pooling of water near your drain field, this is a clear indicator that your septic tank is full and needs to be immediately pumped. You do not want wastewater to collect and rise into your lawn.
Summary – Emergency pumping services are available for those experiencing a variety of dangerous septic system problems.
Pumping And Cleaning Of Lift Stations
Lift stations are nothing more than big concrete holes in the ground. However, these concrete holes serve a very important function as they are what your waste drains into. The sole purpose of a lift station is to remove waste from your property by pumping it to your city’s sewer line.
Very little maintenance is needed for lift stations, especially if only sanitary waste is going into them. Sometimes, these stations collect grease from cooking,
When you start to see grease collecting on the walls or floats of the lift or grease floating on top of the waste in the lift, it is time to contact All Septic & Sewer for routine maintenance service. You do not want to allow grease to continue to buildup in your lift station as this will cause costly, future problems.
Summary – When grease begins collecting in and on your lift station it is time to schedule an appointment for a routine cleaning to avoid issues.
