You might need to have your septic system replaced if you see puddles on your lawn or foul-smelling drain pipes. Rural houses are often fitted with septic systems because they are far from a sewage system that can handle wastewater treatment. Our group can help you with septic system installation. Continue reading to learn the five signs that your septic tank needs to be replaced.
1. Sewage Backup
Raw sewage backing up in toilets or sinks is never a good sign. Call us immediately if you smell or see raw sewage in your pipes. To find the cause of the problem, we will be able to inspect your septic tank. We may recommend a new septic system installation depending on how severe the damage is.
Call us immediately if you hear drains gurgling. We can schedule an emergency sewage disposal tank inspection. Your pipes could be clogged with raw sewage if they are gurgling.
2. Puddles In The Yard
If properly maintained, a septic tank can last up to 40 years. If you see puddles in the yard, it may be time to replace your septic tank. It doesn’t have to be raining. There shouldn’t be any puddles around your septic tank. If you see puddles in your yard, it’s likely that the septic tank needs to be replaced quickly.
Your septic tank system is designed for wastewater treatment before it goes to the drain field. If the drain field is overflowing with wastewater, it can flood your yard and cause raw sewage to back up in your home’s drain pipes. Raw sewage might also be visible in your yard.
3. Foul Odor
All wastewater from your home goes into the septic tank. When your septic system fails, you will notice the wastewater coming from your home. We offer a septic tank setup so that you can fix the problem as quickly as possible.
4. Contaminated Well Water
If your septic system is not working properly, raw sewage can be pumped from the tank onto the ground. Groundwater can become contaminated with bacteria and viruses when this happens. Fortunately, during sewage-disposal tanks service we can inspect the quality of your groundwater. This allows us to determine if your system’s septic tank needs to be changed.
5. Greener Grass
Is your grass greener near your septic tanks than the rest? You might need to replace your septic tank immediately if this is the case. Pretreated wastewater is filtered through the drain field. The drain field will stop working and the soil moisture level will rise, making grass greener.
Your yard may be growing faster around your septic tank than the rest. A sewage line can be required to treat a septic tank that has failed. This is when the sewage acts like a fertilizer for the turf around your septic system.
