You don’t think about your Napa septic tank very often—until it stops working properly. It’s a good idea to recognize how your system works on a regular basis so when you notice things working differently, you can call for help before it gets out of hand. Septic tank pumping services are something everyone with a septic tank is going to need at some point or another. Here are a few times you will know you are due for the service.
Your Drains Are Slowing Down
You know how fast your drains operate and if they start to work slower and slower, you’ll notice. When things sit in the sink or the bottom of the tub for a bit before they drain away, you know your septic tank is acting up. Having pumping services done will get things flowing better again before they get backed up and cause real issues.
You Smell Something In The Yard Or In The Drains
No one enjoys the septic smell, but when you notice it coming from your drains or in the grass outside in your yard, you know something isn’t right. It’s a good warning sign that septic tank pumping services are necessary. You know to call for help before the odor gets worse or other problems arise.
When The Grass Really IS Greener
You know where your septic tank lies within your yard and if the ground around it is mushy or greener than other areas of your yard, there could be some leaking issues that pumping services can fix. Have the experts come out and take a look. After they inspect things, you will feel better about the process.
Your Plumbing Backs Up
The last thing you want in your house is for the plumbing to back up through the toilet or other areas. It can cause a real mess that is really hard to clean up and it can even cause damage that costs even further repairs. If you start to see backups occur, don’t wait around to see if they happen again. Get someone on the phone and have a professional do a septic tank pumping service.
Napa septic tanks are great when they are working properly, but you can’t always guarantee they will work. No septic tank lasts forever, and none will work properly for its entire lifespan without any help.
