Do I Need to Empty My Septic Tank?

There are many signs or situations where you should be emptying your septic tank.

  • Draining and flushing have become slow. If you’re noticing that your toilets or drains are starting to flush slowly then it indicates that your septic tank needs emptying soon.
  • There are nasty smells in your property. When the septic system is backed up, nasty gasses can’t escape properly and could come back up your wastewater system and out your toilets and drains.
  • Water pooling in different areas. In some bad cases, water can even start to pool up in different areas around your property, indicating that the septic tank is completely full and needs to be emptied as soon as possible.
  • Sewage backing up in your property. In an even worse scenario, it’s possible to see sewage coming back up your drains if you don’t empty it on a regular basis.

If you notice any of these signs, then it’s vital that you contact us as soon as possible for our septic tank emptying services.


How Often Should I Empty My Septic Tank?

Septic tanks need to be emptied on a regular basis depending on their size and how quickly they are filled. For instance, a household with a large septic tank could have it cleared once every few years, but a business that makes heavy use of their wastewater system could need their septic tank emptied every year to ensure the entire system stays functional.

There’s no easy way to tell how often you should be emptying your septic tank, but it’s something that our operatives in the field can suggest when they empty your septic tank for the first time. They’ll let you know how full your septic tank was, if it was causing any issues and when you should book your next appointment to have the septic tank emptied.


What Happens When the Septic Tank Isn’t Emptied?

Septic tanks rely on vital bacteria and natural enzymes to help break down solid waste. It slowly decomposes any solid waste in the system which allows it to be separated from wastewater. What’s left in the septic tank is usually a mix of sludge, wastewater and scum on top. Eventually, this sludge layer will continue to rise and eventually block the pipes leading in and out of the septic tank.

Certain substances such as bleach, paint and detergents could be flushed away into your wastewater system which eats away at the bacteria and enzymes, causing your septic tank to stop breaking down solids which leads to a buildup of sludge and a greasy scum layer on top. This eventually stops the septic tank from functioning correctly which leads to blockages, nasty smells and foul water overflowing in other parts of the wastewater system.

If you decide to leave the septic tank for a long time then it could lead to a failure in your wastewater system. This could result in expensive repairs due to blockages or maintenance needs such as cleaning out other parts of the wastewater system. It all depends on the severity of the damage to the septic system.
