Even though your drain field is hidden, the signs you need septic tank service are easy to spot. Keep reading to find out if it’s time to contact us.
While your septic tank’s drain field is underground, there are several signs that indicate it needs to be serviced, such as a pump or repair. If you have a septic tank, the following are three signs that you should give us a call.
Sign #1: There Are Puddles In Your Yard
Are you noticing sunken ground or some puddles in your yard? If so, this may mean that your septic tank is full or clogged. If water and waste are having trouble flowing through, it can build up and cause these pools of water on your lawn or patches of dead grass from the puddles.
Sign #2: It Doesn’t Smell Quite Right
Another sign that you need a septic tank service is if there is a smelly odor that you’ve previously never noticed. This is the most common sign that your septic tank may need repair, and you should call us ASAP.
Sign #3: Slow Drains and Sewage Backups
Lastly, you know you need septic tank service if you notice your toilets and sinks are draining much slower than normal. Sluggish plumbing can indicate that your septic tank needs to be pumped to clear the sewage that’s backed up and overflowing with materials–these are a part of regular maintenance and should be regularly scheduled.
When Was The Last Time You Had A Septic Tank Service?
If it’s been a while (or you’re not sure when your last cleaning took place), consider getting an inspection at the very least to determine the septic tank’s age which will help you gauge its lifespan.
