How to tell if your Septic Tank needs emptying?

It’s a dirty little secret, but the septic tank is one of the most important parts of your house. It is vital that you act quickly if your septic tank needs emptying, but how can you tell? Here are a few examples to help you:

  • Water is pooling around the area of the tank. As your septic tank fills up solid waste can clog the drain. This in turn forces liquid to the surface of your lawn or field.
  • Slow drains and flushing toilets. If your drains are still clogged after using unblocking methods then a septic tank emptying is what you need.
  • The smell. This is probably the sign most associated with full septic tanks. The waste from your toilet, shower and washing machine are overflowing, need we say more.
  • Overly healthy grass. This one might seem like a benefit at first but are a good indicator that the problems above are on the way.
