Typically, you want talk of waste to stay in the bathroom or out in the drain field. However, damage to your septic tank can bring the conversation much closer than you may like. There are many signs that can indicate the need for septic tank repair, but here are three signs that you should particularly watch out for.
- Water backup: If you experience sewage backup, you should definitely call for professional septic tank repair services as soon as possible. This unpleasant indicator can quickly turn into backups throughout your entire home or building, unpleasant smells, and contaminated water.
- Slow draining: When your septic system is working the way it should, you should have no problem putting reasonable amounts of water and waste down the drain to be sent through the pipes. With this in mind, slow draining is another sign of a septic tank in need of repair. Sometimes it’s just a clog, but other times it can be a whole lot worse.
- Soggy ground: The ground outside can become soggy or wet from things like rainwater or sprinklers. That kind of “soggy ground” is normal. However, pools or puddles of water in your yard or drain field when it hasn’t been raining are not. This can be a sign of a leak or crack in your septic tank. You should also watch out for suspiciously green patches of grass.
