What are the signs of a full septic tank? What happens if you never pump out your tank?
- Pooling water
- Slow drains
- An overly healthy lawn around the tank
- Sewer backup
- Gurgling pipes
- Trouble flushing
While you may not get all of these signs immediately, it is important that you get your tank pumped out before it gets overfilled. Neglecting to pump out the tank will allow solids to fill the pipes leading to the drainage field which then get blocked. Ultimately a septic system that doesn’t get pumped out may need to be replaced which is an expensive fix for an easily avoidable problem!
