Septic Tank RepairIf you have ever found yourself in an emergency situation with your septic tank, you know it is not fun. You can’t use your septic system, which means you can’t even stay in your house. While our team at William Dustin Septic takes care of emergency situations quickly, it is best to avoid them if possible. You can do that by looking for signs of septic tank problems.

  • Sewage Backup- If you notice a sewage backup in your toilets or drains, your system is telling you that something is wrong. If you wait too long, you can end up with a huge problem on your hands. Let us come out for a septic tank repair immediately, before it turns into an emergency.
  • Water Near the Septic Tank- If your septic tank is full of sludge, it might start to overflow. When that happens, water might appear around your tank. This is a big sign that you need to take action immediately, before your septic tank stops working and you have to pay for an emergency septic tank repair.
  • Bad Odor- Your septic system will let off a bad smell when it isn’t draining properly. If you notice something that smells like rotten eggs, it is time to call us at William Dustin Septic before your system completely breaks down. We will get out there immediately and get to work on fixing your system.

Keep your eyes (and nose) open for warning signs that your septic tank isn’t working properly. By paying attention to your surroundings, you can avoid an emergency septic tank repair.
