When Is it Time to Replace Your Septic Tank?, Grayson, Kentucky


Prichard Septic Service, Carter County’s septic tank experts, understands how hard your septic system works over the years. That is why it’s important to give your system the care it deserves and recognize when it’s time to replace your septic tank.

Here are some common problems that indicate it’s time to have your septic tank replaced:

  • Pumping Too Much: Most septic tanks need to be pumped every one to three years. However, if your septic tank needs to be pumped more often, it might be time to have it replaced. 
  • septic tankMoist Ground: If the ground in your yard is constantly soggy, even when it hasn’t rained for a while, the septic tank might be leaking water. If there is any damage to the tank, it will have to be replaced. 
  • Growing Tree Roots: Overgrown tree roots can damage your septic tank. When this happens, another septic system usually needs to be installed somewhere else on your property.
  • Old Septic Tank: The life expectancy of a septic tank varies; however, if you’ve had your tank for a couple of decades, it is a smart idea to contact a septic service company to give it a checkup. While an older tank might be working now, it can quickly break down at any time.
