How Do You Know When Your Septic Tank is Too Full?

When a septic system can’t hold any more waste, the wastewater starts to back up into the house or pool above the septic field. This can have unpleasant and expensive effects on your septic system. When a septic tank is too full, you might notice:  

  • Slow draining sinks and toilet
  • Soggy or lush spots in the yard 
  • Sewage odor
  • Sewage backup in your house 

Getting your septic tank pumped regularly can help you avoid those unpleasant consequences – and save money on repairs or replacement later.

Do You Need Your Septic Tank Pumped?


If you have a septic tank:

  • Is your yard soggy looking?
  • Have you noticed lush green grass growing over your drain field?
  • Do you smell sewage in or outside your house?

If so, it sounds like you have a septic system problem and should have your septic tank pumped. And that’s not something you want to put off! An overly full septic tank isn’t going to improve on its own. Delaying can have expensive consequences.
