You may need repairs if you’re experiencing:
Sewage Smell in Your House or Yard
A normally operating septic system will contain all gases, liquids and solids within the pipes and tanks. This prevents any sewage smells from arising on your property.
However, if you experience foul odors in your yard, it might be coming from the drain field. Further inspection/evaluation by one of our experienced technicians may be necessary before a recommendation is made for drain field repair.
Slow-Draining Sinks and Tubs
If you notice that all of your draining entities (e.g., sinks, bathtubs, and showers) are draining slowly, your septic system may be starting to back up or you may have a damaged pipe. Without servicing your slow drains, you may encounter a worse plumbing problem in the future.
Backed-Up Toilet or Sink
If your toilet and sink are backed-up, it is a sure sign that your septic tank is damaged or overloaded. A septic tank in this condition needs to be repaired. When your system becomes backed-up, wastewater starts flowing into your house, which can cause serious damage and cost you thousands of dollars to clean up.
Wet Spots or Bright Green Grass on the Drain Field
Checking for wet spots around your yard is crucial to understanding the health of your drain field. If you come across standing water, if it hasn’t rained in a while, your drain field is most likely not functioning properly.
Strangely enough, a malfunctioning septic tank can create a healthy, green lawn. If your system is slightly leaking, your yard will receive higher nutrient content, which will help it to grow quick and green. Ignoring this allows the leak to worsen and might lead to more damage to your yard and home.
