Your septic tank should be inspected and/or pumped every 1 to 3 years, and is influenced by a number of factors. The University of Minnesota has a scoring chart to help you determine how often to pump your septic tank:
Septic Pumping Frequency Scoring Chart
Here are some other reasons you may want to pump your tank…….
Methane gas from raw sewage stinks. If it smells like rotten eggs, especially near drains or around the leach field, it’s time to pump.
If you often hear gurgling coming from your drains or toilets, this can mean that your septic system is too full. It’s time to pump.
Frequent toilet overflows are a sign of an overly full septic system. If your socks are wet because you’re standing in water from your overflowing toilet (again), it’s time to pump.
When your septic system is too full, drains will clog and water will drain slower than usual. If your child says they can’t do the dishes because the drains are always clogged and the water won’t go down, it’s time to pump.
Grass and vegetation around your leach field becomes lush and vigorous when your septic system is getting too full. If your gardener is taking credit for your lush green leach field, it’s time to pump.
Mud and water collecting in the grass around your leach field is a clear indicator that your septic system is too full. If your carpets are covered with muddy footprints, it’s time to pump.
