Every component of your septic system works together in harmony — meaning when one element falls into disrepair, others are likely to follow suit before long. It’s important to be aware of the warning signs that indicate you’re in need of septic repair, so the issues don’t worsen and necessitate a larger and more costly fix.
Here are four signs you are in need of septic repair:
- Backed-up drains: If you’re in need of septic repair, you may notice your toilets, sinks, or drains backing up.
- Slow or non-functioning drains: You may notice you have to wait longer than normal for your shower, bathtub, or sink to drain, or that these plumbing fixtures are not draining at all. These problems can be a frustrating side effect of a septic system in need of repair — call us to resolve these frustrations and return your septic system to working order.
- Unusual noises: If you notice bubbling or gurgling noises coming from your home’s plumbing, this could mean that your septic system has an issue. This scenario usually occurs when your septic system isn’t flowing properly because of an obstruction or damage.
- Pooled water: Your lawn can show some of the first signs of trouble arising within your septic system. If your grass is particularly green and lush in places that grow over your septic tank or drainfield, or if you observe water collecting and pooling in these areas, these could hint at a septic system that’s leaking or backing up.
