3 Crucial Signs Your Septic System Needs to Be Pumped, Grayson, Kentucky

To get the most out of your septic system, it’s important to have it pumped on a regular basis. That said, if you haven’t kept to a strict schedule, there are still signs you can watch out for to know that it’s time to have the system pumped. If you notice any of them, the experts at Prichard Septic Service, based in Grayson, KY, will handle the task with precision and efficiency. They’ll also equip you with septic tank maintenance tips, so you can avoid any problems in the future. 

They recommend keeping an eye out for these issues, as they could be an indication that your septic system needs pumping:

  • Slow Drains: If your drains are running slowly, your first thought may be that they’re clogged. It’s entirely possible that this is the case; however, if the problem doesn’t go away after you’ve taken steps to unclog them, it’s likely that your tank is full, and you need to schedule a septic tank pumping to fix the problem.
  • Septic SystemThriving Lawn Near Your System: This is an easy sign to miss since it doesn’t typically seem like a problem. When a septic system needs to be pumped, it can leak into the surrounding area that fertilizes the lawn. As a result, the grass near your tank will thrive better than the rest of the lawn.
  • Water Pools Near Drain Field: If there seem to always be puddles or pools of water near the drain field, it’s a sign that the system is overflowing and needs to be pumped.
