Anderson Septic FAQ

You may consider installing a new septic system if your existing system is old, malfunctioning, or if you’re constructing a new property or addition that requires wastewater management. Signs such as frequent backups, foul odors, or wet spots in the yard indicate the need an investigation and/or inspection.

Signs that your septic system needs repair or service include slow draining fixtures, gurgling sounds from plumbing, sewage backups, odors, lush vegetation growth near the drainfield, or standing water around the septic tank or drainfield. These signs indicate potential issues with your system that require professional attention.

The frequency of septic tank pumping depends on various factors such as the size of the tank, the number of occupants in the house, and the usage patterns. As a general guideline, it is recommended to pump your septic tank every 1 to 3 years. However, a professional inspection can provide a more accurate recommendation based on your specific circumstances.
If you neglect regular septic tank pumping, the solid waste and scum inside the tank will accumulate into a thick sludge; reducing the tank’s capacity and potentially leading to blockages in the system. This can result in sewage backups, foul odors, and even damage to the drainfield or septic system components, requiring costly repairs. Dont forget if you have an outlet filter too! They require regular maintenance at the time of pumping.
