Septic Tank FAQs

Your Septic System Questions Answered

How often should I have my septic tank pumped?

Your septic tank needs to be pumped based on its size, how many people live in the house, and how much water is used. In most cases, you should have your tank pumped every 3 to 5 years.

What is a drain field?

A drain field is a network of pipes (usually 20 to 40 feet long) situated outside the distribution box. Gray water from your system drains through small holes in these pipes. After the water drains out of the drain field lines, it filters into the ground and enters the earth’s natural water cycle.

Is it okay that rainwater flows over the drain field?

No. Septic tanks and drain fields should be kept away from downspouts and stormwater runoff from surfaces such as driveways and patios.

What causes wet spots in my drain field?

There are a few common reasons for having standing water in your yard. When water surfaces in the septic system, it is usually due to poor maintenance and neglect over time.

Would it be okay for me to plant flowers or bushes around my drain field?

No. Grass is the only thing that should be planted over or near a drain field. You may experience significant blockages in the drain field line due to tree roots and shrubbery roots. Furthermore, septic tanks and drain fields should never be covered with asphalt, concrete, or other waterproof materials.

What is the number of lids on my main septic tank?

A home built after 1997 has two round lids; one on the inlet side of the septic tank (where water enters the tank) and one on the outlet side of the tank (where liquid exits the tank to a drain field). The centers of the lids measure 4′ apart. To properly pump your septic tank, we need to dig open both of these lids.

For tanks built before 1997, you likely have four 2-foot x 4-foot rectangular lids over the top. It is necessary to dig open at least one of them to pump your septic tank properly.

Is it wise to use a garbage disposal?

We don’t recommend using a garbage disposal because of the likelihood of having to pump your septic tank more often. Food particles are not digested by bacteria and accumulate as scum. The particles are then pushed into the drain field, causing it to clog, which will ultimately damage your septic system.

What is the purpose of a septic filter?

A septic filter acts as a strainer, keeping all solid, large particles in the tank and therefore out of your drain field lines.

How often should septic filters be replaced?

Septic filters should be replaced every 6 months.

Why do I smell a foul odor in my home?

The number one reason for a bad smell inside your home is the need for a septic tank pumping.

The second most common reason for odors is drain issues.

What can be flushed down the toilet?

You should only flush human waste and toilet paper.

How do I maintain my septic system?

The best thing you can do is to have your septic tank pumped regularly. Do not ignore it until it’s too late. Stay ahead of any potential problems by scheduling regular septic pumping. This is the best way to prolong the life of your septic system.

How can I prevent a septic system failure?

It’s maintenance, maintenance, maintenance! As long as your system has been designed, sited, and installed correctly, everything else is up to you. Pump your system without fail every 3-5 years, avoid excess water use, have the filters changed, and be mindful of what you put down the drain and flush down the toilet.

How do I know if my septic system is not working correctly?

  • Drains and pipes that gurgle and sluggish
  • Backflows
  • Poor ground drainage
  • Greener grass around the septic tank

Is it okay to landscape over the septic system?

Yes and no. Grass and ground covers prevent soil erosion when planted over a septic system. Also, evergreens, like pine trees, absorb excess water, which is very helpful. Never plant water-loving trees such as willows or poplars near the septic system.

Help! My toilets and drains are slow. What should I do?

Call us to have your tank pumped as soon as possible because if the tank gets too full, waste will sit in the plumbing lines, creating a clog. And then, when it has nowhere else to go, it overflows into your home! Don’t wait until it’s too late so you can avoid that nightmare.

Why do I have the same problem with my septic tank after a few months of having it pumped?

Having to pump out the septic system more frequently than every few years shows that it is probably failing either from old age or tree roots, causing obstructions. It may be necessary to replace the septic tank or drain field.

What is harmful to flush into my septic system?

A good rule of thumb is to not place anything in your septic tank that is not human waste and toilet paper. The best thing to do is consider everything else harmful, which includes:

  • Food
  • Personal hygiene items
  • Coffee grounds
  • Grease
  • Diapers
  • Baby wipes
  • Litter
  • Q-tips
  • Cigarettes
  • Paper towels
