When your septic system is running as it should, you probably do not think about it very much. Yet every time you turn on a faucet or flush a toilet, wastewater from your house is running into the septic tank. Solids sink to the bottom, and the water flows out into the drainfield. Over time, the number of solids can build up, blocking the flow of water. This can cause the water to back up into your home.

Regular septic pumping, the removal of the solids in the septic tank, will prevent problems before they start. The EPA recommends regular septic pumping every three to five years, depending on the number of people living in the home. Full Circle Environmental has the tools and experience to pump your tank and dispose of the waste efficiently.

Common signs that you might need septic pumping include

  • Wastewater backup in your house
  • Sinks that drain slowly
  • A strong smell near the septic tank
  • Standing water or mud near the tank

New System Pump Installation 
On some properties, wastewater needs to be pumped uphill to reach the septic tank or sewer line. This pump involves a small tank to collect wastewater along with an electric water pump. When the water reaches a certain level, the pump turns on, emptying the tank. Full Circle Environmental can help you pick out the perfect septic pump and install it in the proper location ensuring your system meets your needs

Pump Replacement 
The simplest septic system works by the force of gravity. Water flows downhill from your house into the tank and downhill from the tank to the drainfield. The same goes for connections to a municipal sewer system. If wastewater needs to be pumped uphill, your system will have a pump that needs regular attention. Full Circle Environmental can help take care of your pump to keep things running smoothly. However, even with regular attention and inspection, septic pumps wear out and need replacement. We are ready to help you install a new pump quickly.
