Many homeowners haven’t taken the necessary step of having their septic tanks pumped. As a result, there most likely are hidden problems just below the surface of their home’s septic system. If it’s been a while since you’ve had your septic tank serviced, Curt & Jerry Sewer Service can help you avoid catastrophic repairs with their professional septic pumping services. Septic tank pumping can prevent many plumbing issues that are hazardous to your health, your home, and your wallet.

3 Catastrophic Results of a Full Septic Tank

1. Unsanitary Waste in Your Yard

One of the most common problems of a full septic tank is the seeping of unsanitary waste into your yard. How does this happen? Over time, solid matter breaks down into sludge within the septic tank. This sludge needs to be pumped out, as it is never advisable to have it remain in the tank for long periods of time. If it does, it will be forced to exit the tank and enter your yard, posing health and environmental hazards to your family.

2. Sewage Backup in Household Drains

As described above, when a septic tank becomes too full, the sludge begins to seep out into your yard. It can also return where it came from, which is within your household pipes and drains. This can pose numerous problems, from the minor ones listed below to a complete backup of your entire home’s plumbing system: 

3. Expensive Repairs

If a septic tank is not pumped out, and sludge and sewage are allowed to back up into your yard or your home, the result could be disastrous and very expensive. Not only will you have a foul-smelling home, but you will also have to complete many expensive repairs, such as:

  • Underground sewer line replacement
  • Septic tank replacement
  • Repair of cracked and leaking pipes
  • And possibly more
