Belsito Plumbing deserves all the stars they can get! I've used them twice- at my house to fix a sewer pipe and at my Mom's to fix the main water line to the house. Both times the job was done on time, correctly, and within the estimate.

Flushing Issues

If you experience difficulty flushing your toilet or the sinks and tub is draining slowly, it is another clear indication that your tanks need to be cleaned. Knowing when to have the tanks cleaned can help minimize any likely damage to the septic systems and pipes.

Also, to ensure your septic systems continue functioning properly and running smoothly, you must avoid flushing some materials down your toilets. Below are some of the hazardous materials you should not flush down your toilets:

  • Tampons or sanitary napkins
  • Chemicals
  • Prescription medications
  • Cooking oil
  • Grease
  • Bandaids
  • Cotton balls
  • Cat litter
  • Hair
  • Diapers 

Foul Odors

When the septic tank is close to its full capacity, foul-smelling fumes from the tank can infiltrate the air. When not addressed promptly, the foul smell can become increasingly apparent and become a health hazard.

Foul odors can also result from cracks or leaks in the septic tank. To effectively address any issues, get in touch with us so our experts can assess your septic system, diagnose the problem, and fix them accordingly.

Sewage Backups

When the septic tank is full, sewage can easily come back into your home and cause significant, permanent, and costly damage. A sewage backup is something you don’t want to happen to your home or business, so make sure you get professional help if you notice sewage backups.

Frequently Asked Questions about Septic Tank Cleaning

How often should my septic tank be cleaned out?

Household septic tanks should be pumped every three to five years, but alternative/custom systems with electric float switches require more frequent inspections. To ensure sophisticated septic tank setups are running properly, an annual service by a professional plumbing service may be in order.

What happens if septic tank is not cleaned?

Unclean septic tanks are more than just a nuisance – they can have detrimental effects on your (and your family’s) health and the local environment. Without proper sewage treatment, the septic tank water potentially leaching into the environment could be rife with harmful bacteria that leave wells and groundwater contaminated and unusable – even dangerous.

So, don’t neglect getting your septic tank cleaned. Have your septic tank professionally cleaned every 3 to 5 years.

Can I clean my septic tank myself?

Cleaning a septic tank requires more than just elbow grease and DIY knowledge. While the process is challenging, failure to clean your tank correctly could cause serious damage to it or even contaminate your water supply.

Best not to chance it and instead opt to hire a professional plumber to do the job right.
