septic tank pumpingIt is common that we forget to care for our septic system until it’s too late. All of a sudden, you are making an emergency call to the septic company for late night servicing. At Averett Septic Tank Co Inc., we have listed some indicators it might be time to schedule septic tank pumping and avoid an emergency before it happens.

  • Why is the Ground Soggy? – Once waste leaves your home or business, it goes through the septic system into a drain field. When you notice the ground is soggy and suspect it may be a problem, you should call us right away to come take a look.
  • Is the Toilet Backed Up? – If you notice your toilets and bathtubs are constantly backed up and you can’t seem to get them to drain, this is a good indicator you have some underlying problems with your septic system.
  • What’s that Smell? If you smell something unpleasant inside your home or office and the scent lingers even when you go outside, septic tank pumping should be the first thing on your list. This could indicate your system is backed up and needs servicing.
  • Do You Remember the Last Time? – If you can’t remember the last time your septic system had maintenance, it is a good idea to contact us to schedule an appointment. This will prevent you from having future problems and late-night emergency calls.

When you notice one or more of these indicators, make sure you give us a call at Averett Septic Tank Co Inc. Often septic tank pumping will resolve any issues, and we can help you set up a maintenance plan to prevent future problems. Contact us today with your questions. We are available to assist you!
