Septic Backup in Tampa, Florida

A septic backup is when part of your septic system is blocked, causing waste, wastewater or both to have nowhere else to go but back up the line. Sometimes this can be a small issue, while other times it can be a terrible mess. Whichever type of septic backup you experience, it is essential that you have the issue repaired immediately.

Septic backups occur occasionally to even the most diligent septic homeowners in the Tampa, Florida area.

It is far from a pleasant experience to have a septic backup occur at your Tampa, Florida home. It wouldn’t help matters if you were left with unanswered questions about why it happened, how to prevent it, or something else. At Tampa Bay Septic, our team has the necessary experience to resolve what is causing your septic backup and address any questions you have. Here are a few common questions we have been asked in the past:

What are the most common causes of septic backups?
The most common causes of septic backups are failure to properly maintain the system, introducing the wrong things to the septic system, landscaping damaging the drain lines or drain field, and mistakes made during the installation of the septic plumbing.
Can you resolve the underlying cause so it doesn’t happen again?
Most causes are simply a matter of providing the necessary education about septic system care, and we are happy to do that. We can also resolve installation mistakes by replacing and correcting whatever was done incorrectly. As for landscaping issues, we can advise you on which trees, shrubs, and other landscaping features are a problem so you can work with a landscaper to resolve them. We can repair the broken drain lines or drain field, but if you don’t have the deep-rooted landscaping removed, they’ll continue to cause issues.
What can I do to avoid a septic backup?
At the top of the list for avoiding a septic backup is regular septic system maintenance and following our advice if we alert you to improper care of your septic system.
