What Can Go Wrong with Your Septic Tank?
A well-made and properly installed septic tank on your commercial property should serve you well for many years, requiring only periodic pumping and occasional maintenance.
However, certain things can cause a septic tank to fail. Common causes include:
- Excess grease and oils causing the tank to drain sluggishly or not at all
- Vehicles parked or driven above the septic tank causing tank damage
- Heavy items placed or built above the tank (patios, pools, parking lots, etc.) that cause damage
- Issues with the lift station or drainage field
- Neglecting to have the tank pumped out on a schedule recommended by your septic installer or service professional
Fast Service is Mandatory
When you’re experiencing problems with your septic tank or septic system in general, your business can be very negatively affected. Our goal when inspecting, repairing and pumping your tank is to respond to your call promptly and get the job finished as quickly as possible.
We provide both regular and emergency services for all types of septic tanks, drain fields and lift stations.
Signs Your Septic Tank is Malfunctioning
If your tank is overfull or if there’s something that’s causing it to not drain and back up, you’ll usually know it sooner rather than later. Watch for these signs of septic tank issues:
- Foul smells in your work spaces
- Similar strong odors in the outside air near your septic tank
- Sludge backing up into your drains
- Slow drains/toilets throughout your facility (one or two problem drains/toilets may not be a septic system issue)
- Patches of swampy or recessed land above or around your septic tank
- Unusually lush green grass and foliage above the tank
Have your Commercial Septic System Inspected
If you’re new to your facility or if it’s been years since your last thorough septic inspection, now is the time to arrange for our team to come out and take a look.
Our inspectors evaluate for damage to the tank, signs of malfunction in the system’s components, buildups of grease or “foreign” materials such as paper towels and feminine products and other issues that can lead to serious problems and hinder productivity.
Wesley ChapelAfter we’ve inspected your system, we’ll advise you on the best schedule for having your septic tank pumped out based on the size of your facility and the number of people using bathrooms and sinks. Pumping service every three years is standard for residential homes; for commercial properties, we usually suggest more frequent service.
