When it comes to your septic system, you already know that it serves an important function for your home or business. However, you may not know about the common signs that tell you the system is under duress and needs quick, professional attention. Quality Septic would like to share with you three key times when you should not delay calling for septic services.
1. Persistent plumbing problems
When you have persistent plumbing problems and the plumber has been there once a week for a month, it should be clear that the problem isn’t with your plumbing.
Rather, your septic system is backed up or has suffered damage that needs to be resolved by a septic professional. A good rule of thumb: if a single drain is slow, it’s probably plumbing-related; if all drains are slow, it’s almost certainly a septic system problem.
2. Horrible smells and wet patches outdoors
When you walk outside, do you notice the odor of raw sewage? Are there sections of grass that are wet and soggy when they should be dry? Is the grass over the septic tank vibrant and healthy while the rest of the grass in the yard is just average?
These symptoms mean there’s a septic leak or a backup somewhere that must be located and fixed promptly. Doing so can prevent significant damage to your property and septic system.
3. Septic system maintenance
If you’ve forgotten the last time your septic tank was pumped or you’ve never had a septic inspection, calling for septic services is a very wise move. As a responsible homeowner, you want to provide your septic system with routine, professional maintenance. You also want to be alerted to early signs of damage. Regular tank pumping and inspections are two of the very best things you can do for your septic tank, drain field and other components in your Florida septic system.
