Everything You Need To Know About Septic Tank Repair

If you’re having problems with your septic tank, you’ve come to the right place to learn about septic tank repair services. Here’s everything you need to know before scheduling a septic tank repair appointment.

The EPA recommends that you get your septic tank professionally cleaned every few years, depending on its size and how much water your household uses. If you fail to keep up with your maintenance schedule, it can lead to expensive repairs. Here’s how to know if it’s time to call out the experts at Acme.

How To Know If You Need Septic Tank Repair? 

When your septic tank fails to function efficiently, untreated sewage will be released. This will either mean that your garden becomes soggy with wastewater and sewage, or it will back up your pipes and cause a blockage. Worst case scenario, sewage will come back up into the pipes and flood into your home. Here are a few telling signs that you may need septic tank repair

#1: Your Toilets Back Up

If your toilets back up even if there is no obstruction, the problem could be coming from your septic tank. If it’s too full, it will no longer accept any more waste, and that’s when backflow happens. 

#2: The Age Of Your Tank

The age of your tank is another essential factor you should consider. An inspection of your tank will let you know how many years you have left with it. If you haven’t had it checked in a while, it may also be at risk for developing problems. 

#3: Contaminated Water

Another sign you may need a septic system repair is if the water near you has become contaminated. This could be a sign your wastewater is seeping out of the tank. 

#4: Puddles Or Sunken Grounds Around Your Drain Field

It’s also a good idea to regularly check around your septic tank and drain field. If you are seeing multiple puddles appearing or sunken ground in a specific area, it could be due to your tank being full or clogged. If it’s unable to get through, it may rise and create visible amounts of water in your landscaping. Another problem that can occur in your lawn is dead patches due to these puddles that have formed. 

#5: Plumbing Problems

If you begin to experience problems throughout your plumbing systems, such as slow drains with gurgling noises throughout your home, this could be a sign that it’s time for septic tank repair. 

#6: Bad Odor

The most common sign that you need a repair is if you are experiencing bad odor. If you notice strong septic smells in your yard, it’s time to call us in ASAP.
