Owning a septic tank comes with a lot of added responsibilities and tasks. Ensuring that your septic tank is always flowing and operating properly is a big job. Luckily, we offer many services that can help reduce your stress. If you are new to owning a septic tank, you may be unfamiliar with some of the common signs of a problem.
If you notice any of these problems, you may need a septic repair:
- Frequently Clogged Toilets – One of the most common signs of an issue with your septic tank is constantly clogged toilets. After clearing away the clog, if it comes back the next day, you may need a septic repair.
- Sewage Backup – When the sewage backs up, it means there is a good chance your septic tank is full. You should immediately schedule a septic tank pumping if you notice this common issue.
- Poor Drainage – If you notice your drain field isn’t working right and you have lots of standing water on your property, there is likely something wrong. Standing water could mean the tank is full or there is a deeper issue at play. Either way, you may need a septic repair and should call a professional right away.
- Bubbling toilets – If you notice one of your toilets bubbling during heavy water use – dishwashing, laundry, showers – it could be a sign that your drain field is no longer accepting water at the needed pace.
These common signs indicate that your septic tank is not operating optimally. If you suspect there is a problem, don’t hesitate to give us a call. We can handle your septic repair for you.
