What Are the Signs of a Failing Septic Tank System?

Shawnee Plumbers Offering High-Quality Repair Services

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), one-fourth of households in the United States use septic systems. The systems play an important role in treating household wastewater-that is, when they are working properly. When septic systems are not in working order, they can cause backed-up plumbing. They can also cause groundwater to become contaminated, which serves as a health threat. Replacing a septic tank can cost thousands of dollars, so it's important that you keep your system properly maintained. Here are a few signs that your septic tank might not be working properly:

  • Foul odors
  • Backed-up plumbing (such as overflowing toilets, and backed-up showers and bathtubs)
  • Muddy soil or pools of water surrounding the septic system
  • Sewage flowing to the ground surface in the drain field
  • Strips of bright green grass growing over the drain field

Call A-1 Sewer & Septic Service Inc. for a skilled Shawnee plumber who can inspect your septic system and determine what the problem is. Your septic tank problem might be caused by waste that is trapped in the system, actual damage to the system itself or other problems. Once the cause of the septic tank failure is identified, we can provide you with the necessary repairs. We always provide no-obligation quotes before we begin on any repairs!
