Septic Tank Repair: Do You Have to Dig Up My Yard?

When you’ve called in your septic professionals because you are having a septic system problem, you may have two primary concerns: First, will they be able to address the problem, and second, will they have to dig up your yard?

In the past, the only way to really diagnose and repair septic tank problems and other issues relating to your septic system was to do exploratory digging to try to find the problem. Fortunately, with the advent of better technology, this often isn’t necessary with septic tank repair.

As your septic professionals arrive to diagnose any problems, the first thing they’ll do is complete a thorough septic tank inspection. This is done using video cameras that can go into the far-reaching corners of your septic tank to determine where there may be a problem. If septic tank repair does appear to be the next step, your septic professionals may also be able to use specific tools to repair and restore your septic tank without digging it up.

There are certain instances in which digging up your yard may be necessary. If septic tank repair turns into a need for septic tank replacement, you’ll need to prepare to dig up your yard. Additionally, if your tank is in good condition, but a septic inspection suggests you have other problems in your septic lines, it may be necessary to dig up and replace broken or damaged lines in your yard.
