Your septic tank will need to be pumped out every few years in order to keep it functioning properly. A septic pump-out involves a professional septic contractor using a large hose to vacuum out the sewage that has been filling your septic tank for years.
Here are some of the signs that you need a septic pump-out service:
- A sewage smell. No one wants to deal with the smell of sewage in or around their home. However, if your septic tank needs to be pumped, you may find yourself dealing with this odor, so make sure to call a septic contractor to take care of the problem.
- Greener grass. A septic tank in need of pumping services can cause the grass above it to become more fertilized and appear much greener than the other grass around it. This is due to the excess sewage coming from your septic tank, so even though you may like the appearance of a lush, green lawn, you’ll want to hire a septic pump-out service if part of your lawn is greener than the rest.
- Gurgling noises. Septic tanks that are too full will have a harder time accepting any more waste. When this is the case, you may hear gurgling noises coming from the sinks and toilets in your home.
