When Does My Septic Tank Need Emptying?

At Thames Liquid Waste Disposal, we understand the importance of regular maintenance for your septic tank. Knowing when to empty your septic tank is crucial to avoid potential issues and ensure the smooth operation of your waste management system.

Signs Your Septic Tank Needs Emptying:

  1. Foul Odours: If you notice unpleasant smells around your septic tank or drains, it’s a clear indication that your tank might be full and needs attention.

  2. Slow Drains: Sluggish drainage in sinks, baths, and toilets can be a sign that your septic tank is reaching capacity and requires emptying.

  3. Pooling Water: Unexplained water pooling in your yard, particularly around the septic tank area, is a significant sign that your tank might be overflowing.

  4. Healthy Lawn Over Tank: Surprisingly green and lush grass over your septic tank area can indicate a leak or overflow, suggesting it’s time for an inspection and possible emptying.

Regular Maintenance Schedule:

While the exact frequency of septic tank emptying can vary depending on usage and tank size, a general guideline is to have your septic tank inspected and possibly emptied every 3 to 5 years. Regular maintenance helps prevent costly repairs and ensures your system operates efficiently.
