How to tell if your septic tank needs repair?

How to tell if your septic tank needs repair?

One of the biggest differences of using a septic tank and being on city wastewater is the fact that you are responsible for your septic tank. People that use the city’s water treatment facility generally do not have to worry about the municipal facility becoming too full or needing repairs. Septic tank owners do have to take these things into mind so it’s important to know when your tank needs repairs. Here are the top signs that you should call a professional:

  • Pooling water in your yard
  • Slow drains which could mean a blockage. Because all of your plumbing is connected, a blocked sewer line can definitely cause slow drains
  • Overly green grass (sewage makes great fertilizer)
  • Sewage backup seen in sinks or tubs when the toilet is flushed
  • Sulfurous (sewage) odors

Keep in mind that this list is not comprehensive or exclusive. You do not need to see all of the above problems to indicate that your septic tank is having an issue. At Helmer Septic we can help keep your septic tank running in top shape. By scheduling a regular inspection and pumping system, you can avoid any emergency situations, and enjoy efficient and clean sewage processing for your home
