Septic systems provide essential wastewater treatment services to many homes and businesses. Here are six signs that yours should be repaired:
The water or sewage is backing up A backup is typically an indication that your tank needs to be pumped out. However, it could also mean that there’s a drain field issue that needs to be addressed.
Your showers, bathtubs or sinks are draining slowly This may be a sign that your septic system is clogged or that sludge has built up on the bottom of your tank.
There’s standing water in your yard This usually means that your tank is too full. However, it could also mean that you have a broken or cracked pipe.
You’re hearing loud gurgling sounds This tends to indicate that there’s a blockage in one of your septic pipes or drain vents.
Your drains smell like rotten eggs This may be a sign that your tank is full, one of your pipes is damaged, or that one of your tank seals needs to be replaced.
