7 Signs Your Septic Tanks Need to Be Pumped

Proper septic tank maintenance is crucial for a well-functioning system. 

Your septic tank should be pumped if you notice these seven signs:

  • Slow Drains. If sinks, showers, and toilets are draining slowly or backing up, it could indicate that the tank is full and needs pumping.
  • Foul Odors. Unpleasant odors around drains, toilets, or the yard can mean your tank is full or overflowing.
  • Spongy Ground. Do you notice wet and spongy patches in the yard, even during dry weather? This may mean your tank is full or leaking.
  • Gurgling Sounds. Gurgling noises from drains could be due to a full tank pushing air back into the drain pipes.
  • Visible Backup. Sewage backup in drains or toilets is a clear indication that your tank is full and needs to be pumped.
  • Excessive Plant Growth. It's gross to think about, but raw sewage contains nutrients that grass and plants love. Abnormally lush grass or vegetation in your yard can mean your tank has overflowed.
  • Age of Tank. If your septic tank hasn't been pumped in the last 3-5 years, it's wise to schedule a pumping service to prevent potential issues.

Just like you change your oil every several thousand miles, regular septic pumping is essential for your tank. Staying on top of this can help prevent raw sewage backup and extend your tank's lifespan. At Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Chattanooga, we’re here to help.

Septic Pumping | FAQs

How often does my septic tank need to be pumped?

The frequency of septic tank pumping depends on various factors. These include your tank size, your household size, and your usage patterns.

In general, your septic tank should be pumped every 3 to 5 years. This is an average time frame for a family of four with a standard-sized tank (around 1,000 gallons). However, if your tank is smaller or if you have a larger family, you'll likely need yours pumped more often. It's important to consider factors like water usage and disposal of non-biodegradable items. These factors can affect how quickly, or slowly, your tank fills up. 

Is this your first time pumping your tank? If so - we'll help you determine how often yours should be pumped.

What time of year is best to pump my septic tank?

Here in Chattanooga, we can pump your septic tank any time of year. Having said that, winter can be a little challenging once the ground has frozen. As such, it doesn’t hurt to “get ahead of the 8 ball”.

Fall is an ideal time to have your septic tank pumped or at least checked. The last thing you’d want is a septic emergency before winter and around the holidays. Have your septic tank pumped before winter, and you’ll have one less thing to worry about.
