How to determine if you're experiencing a septic emergency?
A septic emergency can be a nightmare. Thankfully, there are ways to determine whether or not you need to call in the plumber cavalry.
If you have a septic tank, then you know how important it is to get it pumped regularly. If you fail to keep up with your septic system, then you run the risk of having it backed up into your home. When this happens, it can lead to a major sanitary issue that needs to be addressed immediately.
Here are some warning signs that indicate your septic system may be backing up:
- You notice water pooling on the ground near the drain field
- Your toilets aren't flushing properly
- Your drains are running slowly
- Your toilet gurgles when you flush it
- There is an unpleasant odor coming from any of your drains
- The yard around the tank is wet or soggy
If you notice any of these problems in your home, then it's time to call Transou's Plumbing & Septic for service.
What to look for if you need your septic tank replaced.
If you have a malfunctioning septic tank, there are a few ways to tell if it needs to be replaced. First, if you have a tank that is made of concrete, you may notice cracks or holes in the tank itself. Leaks from the tank can cause environmental damage and will cost you money in repairs. If your drain field is continuously flooded or soggy, this could be an indication that your tank is damaged and needs to be replaced. Another warning sign of a faulty septic tank is backing up inside of your home.
There are some other signs to check, such as the age of your septic system, slow drains, standing water in your yard, nearby contaminated water sources, etc.
If you have determined that your septic tank needs to be replaced, you need an expert to examine the problem and come up with a cost-saving solution as soon as possible so you can get back to using your plumbing system without worry. Transou's Plumbing & Septic provides quality service at reasonable prices, along with our outstanding customer service.
