Residential Septic Pumping Service

When it comes to keeping your plumbing in working order, many homeowners forget to perform a key component of plumbing system maintenance: septic pumping. While this is not the most fun service to spend your money on, it could save you thousands of dollars in the long run and extend the life of your septic system.

A healthy septic system is clean and flows smoothly. Ideally, it operates undetected by homeowners and neighbors alike, because no one wants to have a reason to know what their septic tank is doing. To maintain this, a septic system should get pumped every three to five years.

Schedule your septic pumping appointment today and extend the life of your septic system by calling Mr. Rooter® Plumbing.

Signs of a Full Septic Tank

Many homeowners are unable to perform routine maintenance on their sewer systems. Even if you aren’t doing the work, you should know a few warning signs of a full septic tank in mind so you can schedule a septic pumping service at the right time.

These signs might mean your septic tank is full:

  • Strong odor of sewage in the yard
  • A backed-up toilet
  • A drain that can’t be unclogged
  • Standing water in the yard

Some newer septic systems even have built-in alarms that flash and make noise when the tank is nearly full. If this happens, don’t waste any time in calling a reputable plumber in your area.

Why Do I Need Septic Tank Pumping Services?

Because septic tanks handle human waste, it is important that they run safely and hygienically. A well-maintained septic tank shouldn’t smell or pose any sort of danger to your household. A full or inadequately maintained septic tank will likely smell and potentially release dangerous bacteria, phosphorus, and nitrogen into your groundwater. This can affect your family, pets, and even your garden!

Sewer pumping services cost several hundred dollars every three to five years. If that sounds high, keep in mind that a full sewer replacement can cost up to $6,200! It is worth the small investment over time to keep up with sewer maintenance and septic pumping services.
