How do I know if I have a Septic Tank?
If your home is not on sewer service from the city, then you will likely have a septic tank. The tank will be buried somewhere in the yard of the home, usually at least 10 or 15 feet from the dwelling. Septic tanks, if already installed, do not require you to pay a fee for service like having sewer does. Septic tanks do however suffer problems much like a sewer line can. When a septic tank backs up into the house or all over the yard you will need emergency service from a reputable plumber. The team at Action Air & Plumbing & septic tank pumping in Midland has nearly 20 years of experience in the industry repairing and replacing all types and sizes of septic tanks.
Signs Your Septic Tank is Full
Homeowners have so much to worry about these days so it can be confusing trying to remember all the different signs of an appliance failing. When it comes to your septic tank, you really need to learn these signs so that you know when the tank is full and you can have it emptied immediately.
Drains that Empty Slowly
If any of the drains in your home empty slowly, you should first look for a clog before examining the septic tank. Hair and other debris in the drains can cause them to empty slowly. But, if the drain is clean, it’s a tell-tale sign that the septic tank needs to be emptied.
A More-Than-Healthy Lawn
Should you discover a more-than-healthy area of your lawn, typically the area right over the drain field of the septic tank, it needs to be emptied. Vegetation and grass grows much better when the septic tank is full and overflowing. The nutrients in the tank can help the grass grow quicker and greener than other areas of the lawn.
Have you noticed unwelcome smells or odors when you are outside in the yard? Try to find out where the smell is the strongest. If it is near where the tank is buried, this is a sure sign that the tank is full and it’s time to have it emptied.
Everyone wants to have a pool in their yard but not this type of pool. When water begins pooling in your yard it could be a sign that the tank is full. It’s understandable that a puddle or two remains after a strong storm but if you notice pooling that is more like a lake, it’s time to call a plumber.
Backups in the Home
This is the most obvious sign of a full septic tank. Be sure to monitor the lowest drains in the home if you suspect an issue with the septic tank. The lowest drains will backup first before any other drain in the home. If you find a drain backed up on the first floor or in a basement bathroom you need to call a plumber for immediate assistance.
