How to Tell If Your Septic Tank is Full

Has it been years since your last septic tank service? If so, then you might be wondering how full your tank has become. While your septic system is buried beneath the ground, it isn’t always easy to know the condition of your tank, until problems begin to arise. At Metro Septic Pumping, we provide premium septic care services for property owners in Atlanta, Georgia and surrounding metro area communities. Here are some of the most common warning signs that indicate its past time to schedule a pumping and septic cleaning service

Your Last Septic Service Was More Than Four Years Ago
The average household will require a pumping and cleaning service at least once every 2 to 4 years. The frequency will be determined by the number of people living in your home, your daily water usage and the size of your tank. There’s no reason to wait for signs of trouble to surface. Chances are, if it has been four years or longer since your tank was properly serviced, then it’s probably time to schedule an appointment. 

Poor Drainage 
Do your sinks and bathtubs seem to hold water for eternity? Are you forced to limit the length of your shower because of a quickly filling stall or tub? This is a sign that your septic system is struggling. While it could indicate the presence of drain line clogs or root growth, it is also a sign of a full tank. 

Messy Backups
If your kitchen sink fills with wastewater every time you wash a load of laundry, then you might need to have your tank pumped. Messy sewer line backups are a clear red flag that you have a massive blockage in your pipes, or that the volume of waste in your tank has reached its capacity. 

Pools of Water 
Does your lawn often have large pools of water, despite a lack of rain clouds in the forecast? This is a common sign that the septic tank is full and overflowing, especially if it is coupled with foul sulfur odors. It can also be a warning of a major leak or sewer line collapse, so be sure to get professional assistance as quickly as possible to diagnose the source of the issue and avoid exposure to illness causing bacteria. 

Unusually Lush Grass 
Your septic system is full of the water and nutrients that plants need to thrive. An overflowing septic tank will frequently cause sudden growth of grass in the area where wastewater is located. If your otherwise uniform lawn has a random patch of waist high grass, then it might be time to call Metro Septic Pumping.
