Our team knows from experience just how unpleasant septic problems can be, and we want to help you avoid any major malfunctions if we can. The best way to prevent major septic problems is to learn to identify early signs of trouble so that you can get them taken care of as soon as possible, before they get worse. In this article, we’ll go over three of these signs that you need septic system repair to help you know when to take action.
- Slow Drains. A single slow drain is usually caused by a problem in that specific pipe, but multiple slow drains around your home often indicates a septic problem. If the drains all around your house seem to be clogged at once, we encourage you to call our team for septic system repair services.
- Sewage Backups. Another clear sign that you need septic system repair is sewage backing up into your home. This most often occurs when the tank is full and needs to be pumped, but it can also indicate a more serious issue, so it’s worth getting the problem checked out by professionals.
- Foul Smells. A third sign that you need septic system repair is foul odors coming from your pipes or lawn. Either situation indicates that gasses are leaking out of the septic tank somehow, and you should have your tank inspected as soon as possible to identify the source of the stench.
