Let us help you avoid septic backups at your home.

septic tank pumping

There is little doubt about it; if you don’t take care of regular septic pumping, there is a high likelihood that you’ll experience a septic backup at your Taylors, South Carolina home. At American Waste Septic, we concur with the recommendation of the South Carolina D.H.E.C. that you should schedule septic pumping no less frequently than every three years to avoid septic backups. However, it is important to note that your situation could dictate having it done more often. There are two things you can do to avoid septic backups. The first is understanding the reasons why you might need septic pumping more often. The second is knowing the telltale signs that a backup is imminent.

  • How to determine septic pumping frequency- While the three-year recommendation is a good rule of thumb, if you have a large family, conduct business from your home involving clients using your bathroom, have frequent overnight guests, or don’t take caution about what you flush or put down the drain, you could easily need septic pumping more often.
  • How to tell if a backup might happen soon- Not all septic problems resulting in septic backups are kind enough to alert you to an issue before it becomes extensive. An instant clog due to something big being flushed, for example, won’t give you a warning. However, if you notice gurgling drains, slow drains throughout the home, toilet flushing issues, or water backing up in the tub or shower, we recommend calling us at once to schedule septic pumping.
