Septic Pumping in Rome, NY

If your home is on a septic system, septic pumping is crucial. Regular pumping will help you avoid repairing and replacing equipment and minimize cleaning costs if the waste in the tank ever leaks into the environment.

Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Oneida provides Rome homeowners with convenient and safe waste management and septic pumping services. Our friendly, licensed technicians know the ins and outs of septic systems and will provide the reliable service you're looking for.

Why Should I Have My Septic Tank Pumped?

Your septic tank system works by diverting waste from your home to an underground septic tank on your property, where the waste settles before it is filtered out and absorbed by the soil. Most waste is biodegradable, but things like fats, oils and grease (FOG) are not. FOG builds up over time and can prevent your septic tank from doing its job if it is not removed.

Because waste does not filter out immediately, the tank can also become full and potentially overflow if it is never emptied. Overflows are major and expensive messes to clean, and they can also contaminate the groundwater around your home, posing a threat to your family and pets.

Regular septic pumping will ensure that your septic tank remains in good condition and reduce the risk of overflow.

How Often Should My Septic Tank Be Pumped?

The general rule of thumb for septic pumping is every three to five years. To determine the ideal pumping frequency for your property, you should consider the size of your home and how many people live there. That said, if you've dealt with any of the following scenarios, you may want to consider shorter pumping intervals:

  • You have had previous septic tank damage.
  • Chemicals that kill healthy bacteria were introduced into the tank.
  • You have experienced flooding.
  • Your home produces a high amount of waste.

The experts at Mr. Rooter Plumbing will gladly offer quality advice on the ideal pumping frequency for your specific tank.

Signs That My Septic Tank Needs to Be Pumped

If your septic tank is in need of pumping, you may experience problems such as:

  • Clogged or slow-draining sinks and toilets
  • A strong smell of waste in your backyard
  • Vermin in your backyard
  • Standing water above your septic drain field

When someone notices these signs, significant tank and property damage has often already been done. With regular septic pumping and cleaning, you can avoid all of these costly issues and keep your system working efficiently.
