Septic tank repair needs to be handled properly to ensure the safety of those in your Plant City, FL home.
Septic Tank Repair in Plant City – If your sewage backs up into your house or you notice a foul odor coming from your septic drain field, you probably need a septic tank repair. Repairs can be costly, but not all are, so don’t worry just yet. Give us a call at William Dustin Septic, and we will come assess the problem for you.
Before we start any drastic measures, we’ll check the water level in the tank. If the water level is below the outlet, then it is likely just a problem with the piping in your home. In this case, you’ll need to call a plumber to get it fixed. If the water is above the outlet, then we know there is problem with the tank or something beyond it.
Our first step will be to pump the septic tank. This is a routine septic maintenance project and should be done on your tank every 3 to 5 years anyway. If it’s been any longer than that, it’s likely that there was simply too much buildup of solid waste in your tank and the system was unable to process incoming wastewater properly. Once the tank is drained, we will be able to see if there are any obvious signs of damage to the tank and make repairs as necessary.
A soggy drain field can also cause your septic system to not function properly. Often the drain field gets clogged because the septic tank wasn’t pumped frequently enough and the solid waste builds up too much in the tank. When this happens, the solid waste gets leaked into the drain field. Over time, the field is unable to soak up the drain water at a fast enough rate, so the field stays overly saturated.
