warning signs that you are in need of septic tank pumping

One thing about owning a septic tank is that you are never able to fully put it out of your mind. Whether it is warning house guests that bleach products and flushable wipes aren’t allowed or if it is because you are trying to remember the last date you had a septic system inspection, you need to pay attention to your septic system in order for it to function properly. Here at Sauer Septic, we know that septic tank pumping is by far one of the most important things you can do to keep the integrity of the entire system intact. If you can’t remember the last time you had a good septic tank pumping, we want to let you know of a few warning signs to watch out for before you end up with an expensive emergency pumping situation on your hands.

Start by noticing your drains. Do you see them flush smooth and properly, or have you noticed the water takes a while to leave the home? Are you standing in a pool of water by the end of your shower? Is there a foul odor coming from your drains? These are all important things to watch out for when it comes to proper septic tank cleaning and shouldn’t be ignored.

You’ll also want to check your calendar. Because septic tank pumping needs to be done on a regular basis and before issues arise, you will want to make sure you’re marking your calendar for this date.

These are just a few of the warning signs that you are in need of septic tank pumping, although there are plenty more. If you’re not sure whether it’s time for septic tank pumping on your property, give us a call, and we can help you find out.
