Signs that your Septic Tank is Full

Having a Septic Tank means being environmental friendly.

Septic tanks do not contaminate the water supply, they even remove the bacteria before water is released into the soil. Plus, the recycled water is absorbed by nearby plant life.

When you have a septic tank in your area, you have to be aware of how much water you’re using. It becomes problematic when it suddenly spews unpleasant odor, drains slowly and water becomes dirty and smelly.

According to Philconprices, an average cost of a Septic Tank in the Philippines is around nineteen-thousand and construction with labor cost does not still sum up with it.

It is expensive and having it full or broken means you have to spend money again to repair nor clean it.

Septic Tanks required routine maintenance, here are the sign that Septic Tanks are full and needed and immediate action:

1. Bad Odor

Your Septic Tank and System should not smell, it is meant to process and dispose of your sewage and it should do it without any noticeable odor. If you are smelling an unpleasant odor, it might be a warning sign that your septic tank is full.

Your Septic Tank and System should not smell, it is meant to process and dispose of your sewage without any noticeable odor. If you are smelling an unpleasant odor, it might be a warning sign that your septic tank is full.

This sign can be mostly smell in the sink, where you wash your dishes or in toilets. Since septic tanks become full it releases foul odor that comes from sewer vent pipes. This pipe helps to remove sewage and greywater from a building or home. The vent also helps to regulate air pressure in the plumbing pipes to ensure that the water flows unimpeded through them.

If you start smelling an unpleasant odor in your sink or toilet, it is better to call a professional plumber to check it.

2. Slow Drains

Drains should flow clearly and quickly, and if you have slow drains in your home or you momentarily notice that water goes down slowly, it may indicate that your septic tank is full and needs to be emptied.

In addition, this warning sign can also happen when you have other issues with your plumbing besides just a full septic tank. If one drain is slow, then it could be a clog in a specific pipe drain, but if the drains are slow throughout the house or in multiple locations. The slow drains could be a symptom of a back up from the overfilled septic tank where you already need to call a plumber.

3. Trouble Flushing

This sign that your septic tank might need to be emptied is trouble with your toilet. If you have trouble flushing your toilets then it might be an indication that the septic tank is full and is having trouble taking in the water when you flush.

Unflushable toilets are mostly caused by foreign objects which clog the drain pipes or too little water in the tank. If this sign persists, especially if the issue occurs on multiple toilets then it might go beyond a local clog and it is a sign that you need to call an expert to check out your septic tank.

4. Pooling Water

An overflowing septic tank can be a nightmare to everyone who owns septic tanks in their property.

If a septic tank gets too full it might start leaking into the drain field. This can also happen if a tank gets too old and starts deteriorating. Early sign of pooling water can be recognized when faucets, showerheads and toilet tanks are leaking. Like slow drain this can also indicate to other plumbing problems.

Before it goes worst, calling a professional plumber will be the best choice than tampering with it by yourself.

5. Sewage Backup

The most obvious sign that a septic tank is full, is sewage back up. This is probably the worst warning sign and a pretty (omit) severe indication you have a big problem that needs to be rectified right away as a raw sewage can cause a health risk.

Sewage Backup happens when water comes up or is pushed into your home through the pipes from sewer or drainage systems and mainly caused by clogged pipes or excessive use of water which are hard for drainers to drain.

If you encounter a rising water problem commonly seen in toilets when you clean it, call a plumber right away.

The septic tank is essential for storing and breaking down the wastewater that your property produces every day. Keeping your septic tank healthy not only keeps it working correctly, but it also prolongs its life and saves you money.

When you don’t encounter these signs this indicates that your septic tank system is healthy, but if you witnessed some of these warning signs in your property call a trustworthy plumbing company.
