You probably haven't seen it, but it is right below your eyes! We are talking about a septic tank as well-water homeowners. If you do not know what we are referring to, it is probably because you did not know it is located underground and around your property. And if you notice any of the following signs below, it is likely time for your septic tank to be pumped.
Noticeable Sludge Around Your Home
It is recommended that you keep up with septic tank maintenance every three to four years. Otherwise, you will begin to notice sludge and scum around the grounds of your home. This occurs because the sludge releases from inlet and outlet tees whereas the bacteria can break down a considerable amount, it will end up causing an overflow if too much solid waste is collected. For sanitary and safety reasons, it is best to keep up with the septic line maintenance.
Any septic tank or sewer line requires maintenance to avoid foul smells throughout the years. Although the waste that is collected is natural, it should only be disposed of by a licensed and professional company that can benefit from it being recycled. Foul smell is by no means a good sign and should be pumped out.
Leaving a sewer line repair without any mind can lead to a no-good cloggy mess. This occurs in the drain field and will worsen through time especially if harsh chemicals or flushing personal hygiene products are thrown down the drain. The goal of sewer tank maintenance is to keep proper drainage intact while allowing the good bacteria to stabilize the rest.
Begins to Leak
External water entry can cause the septic tank to leak. Some examples that cause this are excessive use of water waste, non-efficient water appliances and not testing out the plumbing system for leaks. Make sure you schedule sewer line maintenance and septic tank maintenance at least once a year to have it professionally inspected and ready to go.
After all of these signs mentioned above have been exhausted, your septic will most likely shut down. While it is never a good thing, it is a clear indentation it is time for a sewer line repair. By ensuring you keep up with your septic tank maintenance and keep groundwater clean, you will save money in the long run rather than repairing it once it has reached its limit.

And prices are reasonable for the area. I would definitely use them again!
Stephanie Mellott First of all, they were ON TIME. In fact, the first visit was early! A slab leak is scary, but within the week, I was scheduled for repair. It took a matter of hours. All of the plumbers were polite and worked quickly and cleanly. When the contractor came to assess the damage to the house, he was so impressed by the lack of damage to my home that he asked me for the name of ASAP twice! Highly recommend this company and their services.
