Whether it’s a roof leak or a clogged drain, some household features have a way of notifying you of possible issues. This also applies to your septic tank. The septic tank pumping professionals at Darrell Crews Septic Tanks are equipped to tackle any problem that may arise.
Unmaintained septic tanks can cause a wide range of problems, including health hazards and the contamination of neighboring water sources such as well water. In order to determine whether or not your system is full or in danger of overflowing, you should look for several key signs.
Foul odor: You may notice a bad odor, similar to rotten eggs, coming from your drains, toilets, and drain field.
Slow drainage and flushing: Slow draining washing machines, tubs, and showers, as well toilet flushing issues can be a sign that your tank needs to be pumped.
Greener grass: Excessive waste can act as a fertilizer, causing the grass over the drain field to become much greener and more lush than the rest of your grass.
A great way to prevent these issues is to have our professionals come out and pump your system every few years. The exact timing will depend on the number of people in your home and activity level of the tank. Our team can help you determine the ideal maintenance plan.
Although septic systems are known to last for years without incident, potential problems may arise—sometimes seemingly without warning. You may be tempted to wait it out or remedy the issues on your own. However, it’s best to contact a professional as soon as you notice signs of a sewage backup. Our emergency service professionals are available around-the-clock.
