When your septic tank is regularly pumped and maintained, it can last for several years without any major issues. However, unexpected problems can sometimes take you by surprise, so it’s important to be able to recognize when you might need septic tank repair services.
Here at William Dustin Septic, our team is dedicated to helping people throughout our community with all their septic needs. In this article in particular, we’d like to talk about the importance of septic tank repair. Putting off necessary repairs can lead to more serious problems, so we encourage you to reach out to us if you notice any of the following signs:
- Slow Drains – If your shower, sink, or toilet is draining much slower than usual, it could just be a problem with that specific fixture. However, if you notice that all your drains are slower, it could indicate that there’s a clog or another issue with your septic tank.
- Gurgling Noises – When air gets trapped within your system, it can cause bubbling or gurgling sounds to come from your sink or toilet.
- Sewage Backup – Sewage backup in your home is a serious issue that can pose health hazards to you and anyone else in your house, so we urge you to give our contractors a call for repair services as soon as you notice this problem.
- Standing Water – If you ever notice puddles of water around your drain field or septic tank, it’s a good idea to schedule septic tank repair services as soon as possible. Pools of standing water can sometimes indicate that your septic tank is overflowing or that there’s a leak somewhere in your septic system.
