When you are responsible for a commercial building, many different aspects of the job require attention. Sometimes it can be overwhelming to think about all of the little ways that different things can go wrong.  One of those oft-forgotten systems is the septic. Between fire alarms, flooring care, routine maintenance, and general security measures, how do you have the time to think about the septic system? Simple: let the professionals at B&B Pumping take care of it. All you have to do is schedule a pumping service and we will show up and take care of the tank for you — no need to deal with the hassle yourself. In fact, no building owner or residential septic system owner should attempt to pump their system themselves as it can be quite dangerous. But how do you know when it is time to pump your septic system? Well, the best rule of thumb is every two to five years, depending on the use your system gets. You should go no longer than five years between septic services, as it could create serious issues.

Signs Your Septic System Is In Need of A Service

If it has been longer than you can remember since your septic system has been pumped, the best thing to do is contact B&B Pumping for a service. Of course, if you are noticing any of the following symptoms, it is time to pump the system and consider repairs.

Sewer Backups

In a commercial building, the potential for a sewer backing up is always good. You never know what someone is going to flush down the toilet. And believe us when we say we have seen some pretty insane stuff that has been flushed down the toilet. The potential for anything and everything to end up in your septic tank and plumbing is heightened if you have a service- based business like a restaurant or a gym. When your sewer backs up into your building, the best thing to do is to call a plumber. They will be able to determine if the backup is being caused by a dead pet rat in the pipes or a full septic system.

Slow Drains

Have you ever dumped your coffee down the drain and just watched as the brown liquid refused to go down? Then returned an hour later and the coffee has disappeared? Well, it is not Ritchie from accounting desperately sucking the coffee out of the sink — it is a slow drain. When you have a slow drain, the culprit could be a blocked pipe or, worse yet, a full septic tank.
