How Frequently Should I Have My Septic Tank Pumped?

Unlike homes which are on city sewer service, septic systems retain waste in a tank which must be pumped out on a somewhat regular basis. The amount of waste and the size of the tank will dictate how often the tank should be pumped out to avoid the very undesirable issues that occur when a septic tank overflows. One of the biggest benefits of contracting with a professional plumbing company to pump out your septic tank is that a regular service schedule will be created to ensure that the tank is not allowed to become overfilled. And should you ever experience any issues related to your septic system or any other plumbing or HVAC systems in your home, the Action Air & Plumbing team of professionals is ready to assist you. We not only pump septic tanks but we also design, install and repair them too!

Officially The State of Texas recommends having you septic tank pumped every 2 to 3 years to prevent sludge from passing through into the disposal field causing system failure. When we pump your septic tank we use specialized equipment to stir up and vacuum out all of the sludge and scum built up over time. We inspect the different components of your tank to be sure everything is working the way it is intended to work.

Many homeowners are unaware of this and allow their system to go for years without pumping because everything seems to be working just fine. Not until their sewer backs up do they make the call for pumping the tank, however many times the damage at this point has already started. Just like getting the oil changed in you car to prevent engine failure, your septic tank needs care and maintenance too. Your car’s engine is to expensive to chance not spending a little money on maintenance. So too your homes’ septic system is an expensive item to replace when only a little maintenance can insure its long life.

Common Signs Of a Full Septic Tank

For homeowners who do not have an annual or semi-annual agreement with a professional company for Lubbock septic tank pumping, there are a few tell-tale signs to indicate that a septic tank is full. If the drains in your home are emptying more slowly than normal, then that is a good indication that the septic tank is full. In the case of a single drain clearing slowly, check for a clog of hair or other debris. But when all drains are functioning more slowly, that is a sure sign of a full septic tank.

Another clear indication of a full septic tank is when the lawn around your septic tank begins to grow vigorously. The nutrients overflowing from a septic tank will create a section of lawn that is clearly more green and growing more quickly than other areas of the lawn. However, use caution when you are examining this more lush area of grass as there will often be standing water from the overflowing septic tank. And because it is not only water that has overflowed from the septic tank, you will often notice that there is an unwelcome smell emanating from the area. It is also a good idea to contact a plumber right away if you do notice unusually lush areas of lawn if the septic tank is not full, it could be the sign of a more serious issue like a broken or damaged sewer line.

Finally, homeowners on a septic system need to regularly monitor the lowest drain in their home for signs of a backup. An overfull septic tank will often force waste up through the lowest drain on the property. If this occurs, contact Action Air & Plumbing immediately at  (806) 787-6501 to schedule immediate service to pump out your septic tank and inspect it for other issues.

"Very prompt and courteous. Called me an hour before our scheduled window, asking if they could come ahead of time. Upon arrival, they listened to my description of the issue, my questions and concerns, then gave me sound advice. After clearing clogged drain, they stayed behind, cleaning up a mess that wasn’t their fault. They are MY guys from now on."
