Why should I get septic tank pumping and drain cleaning?
Every now and then, someone will flush something that has no business being in a septic tank, for instance, a tampon or diaper. These kinds of things can block lines quickly. Other times, buildup from a garbage disposal unit, grease, or other organic waste can make the pipes too narrow for something as simple as toilet paper to pass. One of the major concern is when septic pumping isn't performed often enough. Most homes need it done every 3-5 years, but a home with a garbage disposal unit may need it annually. When the layer of sludge isn't eliminated from the bottom of the tank, it accumulates. Eventually, it engulfs the outlet and saturates the lines of the leach field. In any of these cases, toilets generally start to run slower or a gurgling noise might be heard from the drains. If left unattended, the wastewater can back up throughout the drains in the house, including sinks and showers.
