What Happens if You Don’t Get Your Septic Tank Pumped Out

Not pumping your septic tank can lead to big problems which can affect your home, health and the environment:

  1. Sewage Backups: A full septic tank can cause wastewater to back up into your home, odours, unsanitary conditions and potential health hazards. Sewage backups can affect sinks, toilets and drains making your home uncomfortable and unsafe.
  2. Environmental Contamination: Overflowing septic tanks can release untreated wastewater into the soil, contaminating nearby water sources, harming local ecosystems and posing health risks to humans and animals. This can affect drinking water supplies, surface water and groundwater, causing widespread environmental damage.
  3. Costly Repairs: Ignoring regular septic tank maintenance can cause severe damage to your septic system, costly repairs or even a complete system replacement. Over time sludge and scum builds up and clogs the outlet pipe, damages the drain field and causes the septic tank to fail. These issues can be expensive to fix and may require extensive excavation and system replacement which can be disruptive and costly.

By having regular septic tank pump outs you can avoid these dangers, your home and environment and save money on repairs.
