Have you notice a foul sewage smell on the outside, or even inside, orf your house? Are there areas in your yard that seem wet (on a dry day) with standing black or grey water? If you answered yes to either of these questions you definitely need to get your septic tank pumped out.
Generally speaking, for a 1500 gallon septic tank witha properly working leach field, it is recommended to have the system pupmed out every 3-5 years. This will vary based on:
· The size of your household
· Do you use a garbage disposal?
· Does your laundry water go through your system?
· Is there adequate bacteria in your system to aid in the digestion of organic solids?
· Do you want your system to last and work effectively as long as possible?
Signs of system distress include:
Toilets and sinks draining slowly
Gurgling sounds in your plumbing
Black or gray water coming from your home’s outlet tile discharging into a creek or ditch
Foul sewage odors noticed in the house or outside *BE SAFE: If odor is present you should immediately take appropriate safety measures to eliminate propane or gas leaks as the cause.
