Over 21 million households in the United States use septic systems for their home wastewater. If you’re part of this group, is it time to schedule your Windermere septic tank cleaning?
If your septic system isn’t regularly maintained, you could end up in an expensive situation down the road. Windermere septic tank cleaning and pumping keeps your system operating like it should, and can help identify potential system issues like leaks and clogs. The average household septic tank will need to be pumped out every 3 to 5 years, but there are some signs that you can’t wait any longer.
3 Signs You Can’t Postpone Windermere Septic Tank Cleaning
One: Drain Backups
Sewage backups in your drains could indicate that your septic tank is at capacity, or that there is a blockage or obstruction in the pipes that carry wastewater out of your home. Some of the signs of a sewage backup include:
- Slow drains throughout your home
- Bubbling drains and toilets
- Sewage smells coming from your drains
- Frequently clogged drains
Two: Standing Water And Spongy Areas On Your Lawn
If your septic tank is overflowing, you may notice pooling water or damp areas on your lawn, even when there has been no rain. This is caused by excessive solid waste buildup in the septic tank. When there is too much solid waste in a septic tank, any liquid waste will be forced out of the tank and into the drain field too quickly, overloading the drain field and creating wet spots on your lawn.
Three: It’s Been Too Long
If you know that it has been more than the recommended 3 years since your last septic system inspection, or it’s been longer than 3 to 5 years since the last time your tank was pumped out, you can’t delay Windermere septic tank cleaning any longer.
Regular maintenance fees of just $250 to $500 every few years are a much lower cost than repairing or replacing your septic system, which can total $3,000 to $7,000 for a conventional system, and even more for an alternative system.
