The last thing you want is for your septic tank to go out of commission. The best thing you can do for the system is care for it and watch for signs that small septic repairs are necessary.
Here are a few such signs.
- Slow Drains – In a home with a city water connection, a slow drain means something is clogged. For those with a septic system, the answer could be the same, or it could mean that your septic tank is full and needs pumping, or that another septic repair is necessary.
- Green Grass – Usually, green grass is a good thing, but when the grass is only green right around the septic tank or drain field, it’s a sign that there’s a leak.
- Bad Scents – What’s that rotten egg smell? If you notice a bad smell either in your yard or around plumbing in your house, it’s a sign that septic repairs may be needed.
- Backups – If black water is backing up into your house through drains or the toilet, the pipes are clogged and there could be septic system failures going on as well. That’s the worst-case scenario but seeing water backing up is a situation that needs immediate attention.
Even if you treat your septic system as well as possible, septic repairs will be needed from time to time.
