In this article, Roto-Rooter of Lake Charles, Inc. looks at the need for septic tank pumping and who to talk when you need your septic tank serviced.

Why Does a Septic Tank Need to Be Pumped?

Your septic system may be the most overlooked and undervalued utility in your home, but with proper care and maintenance, your septic system can continue to work for you for at least 25 to 30 years. Proper operation and maintenance of your septic system can have a significant impact on how well it works and how long it lasts, and in most communities, septic system maintenance is the responsibility of the homeowner.

Symptoms of a Failing Septic Tank

A failing septic system can lead to obvious and unpleasant symptoms, such as foul odors and even a soggy lawn. When a septic system fails, inadequately treated residential waste can reach the groundwater, causing other problems. Bacteria and viruses from human waste can cause dysentery, hepatitis, and typhoid fever. Many serious outbreaks of these diseases have been caused by contaminated drinking water. If you think it’s time to have your septic tank pumped, give Roto-Rooter of Lake Charles, Inc. a call today.

Pumping Your Septic Tank

Before the pumper begins the process of pumping out your septic tank, they should measure the scum and sludge layer thickness. By doing this, you can judge the rate at which the solids accumulate in the tank, which will help you decide when you should have the septic tank pumped next. Most Beaumont, TX and Lake Charles, LA households will fall in the 3-5 year range for pumping frequency. Regardless of the pumping frequency used, the regular inspections of your septic system will provide assurance that all is well within these tanks.
