A lot can happen under the drain field with your Kissimmee septic system without your knowledge. That’s why we’re sharing four signs to look out for to determine if your system needs serviced.
One of the most obvious signs that your septic tank needs to be serviced is pooling water through your grass. We typically see this happen to the lawn in and around your drain field, which means there’s something going on underneath the surface. This usually indicates that your Kissimmee septic system’s tank is full and needs to be pumped.
Fortunately, anyone can be an expert when it comes to determining if a septic tank is full- you just have to use your sense of smell! Unfortunately, the foul odors will hit you right in the face to let you know that your system needs to be pumped ASAP. Water from the kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, toilet, etc. all accumulate within your septic system, which, when full, emits foul smelling odors. If you notice these smells arising from around your drain field, it would be in your best interest to call for a professional opinion.
Is sewage backing up in your sinks and drains? This happens when your Kissimmee septic system is overflowing with materials and needs to be pumped to create more space for sewage to live. Along with the other two signs above, sewage backup is not normal and should be looked at at your earliest convenience.
If it takes your drains a long time to emit liquids, that’s a sign that you either need plumbing or you need a septic professional. Slow drains tell us that your septic tank might be getting too full with very little room for more products. If you’ve tried using a plunger to solve this problem with no luck, it could be bigger than a plumbing problem. Be sure to call us and let us know what’s going on so that we can provide you with a solution to this septic concern.
