professional septic tank worker working on pumping

One of the key aspects of your plumbing system is having your septic tank pumped. At Portland Septic Pros, we realize that it isn’t the most fun thing to have to spend time your money on but, unfortunately, it is necessary if you want to keep your plumbing system active and operating. Having your system pumped regularly will also help you save a lot of money and extend the life of your system. An effective septic system is one that has been thoroughly cleaned, pumped and is flowing smoothly. We recommend having your septic system pumped every three to five years.

How You Know You Have A Full Tank

Since you are unlikely performing routine maintenance of your tank then you probably don’t know that you have a full tank that should be pumped. However, there are some signs that you can pay attention to if you are to determine whether you have a full tank.

  • A strong, foul smell of sewage is a good indicator
  • Your toilets are backing up
  • Drains are difficult to unclog
  • There is standing water in your years

If you notice any of these things occurring then we recommend that you give us a call.

Why Pump Your Septic Tank

Since the tank holds human waste, your septic tank must be operating properly for hygiene purposes. If you have a well-maintained tank then you won't have to worry about bad smells and it won't affect your household. A full tank will smell and can pose a threat to the safety of those in your home, from phosphorus, nitrogen, and bacteria getting into the groundwater. This adversely affects your pets, landscaping, and your family. It is also less expensive to have your septic tank pumped rather than spending money on a full sewer replacement.
