An empty septic tank will usually fill up in less than 10 days. THE CALCULATION IS: 50 GALLONS OF WATER PER DAY PER PERSON AVG HOUSE IS 3 PEOPLE 3 PEOPLE X 50 GALLONS = 150 GALLONS PER DAY FOR 3 PERSON FAMILY TANK CAPACITY IS 1000 GALLONS LESS THAN 7 DAYS but don’t worry this is NORMAL.
 
The system is starting to fail. Septic tanks should be pumped every 2 years as maintenance to ensure a long life for the system ( a long life is 50years). Septic tanks are notmeant to overflow since they are pumped every 2 years. Systems that are overflowing require immediate repair and attention. Further detail: A septic system is an ecological system that requires regular maintenance every 2 years to ensure performance. Maintenance is pumping every (2) years to remove solids that have accumulated in the septic tank and monthly bacterial treatments. Once a system is overflowing it is no longer digesting water; hence it’s overflowing. Overflowing systems must be replaced according to your local jurisdictions requirements.
 

A septic certification is a document that states that an inspection has been performed on a specific septic system. The certification should state that the system has been inspected and is working properly and meets code. Typically, septic certifications are required in real estate transactions. It is important that a thorough inspection is done on the septic system before the escrow transaction is completed to protect all parties in the transaction. The average cost to replace a septic system is $7,500.00 so it can be a very costly thing to replace.
