As your septic tank ages or becomes damaged, it’s important to make sure that your system gets the routine maintenance and repair services it needs to stay in good working order. To make sure your tank gets the necessary services, we encourage you to learn key signs that your septic tank needs to be repaired.
According to our technicians, here are some of the top signs that you need septic tank repair services:
- Foul odor. The smell of sewage on your residential or commercial property can indicate that there is a blockage or other issue. Since nobody wants to put up with the strong odor, be sure to hire a septic tank repair service to remedy the issue.
- Strange noises. If you notice strange, gurgling noises coming from your plumbing fixtures, such as your sinks and toilets, there’s likely a septic tank issue that needs to be repaired. Regular splashing noises are okay, but any sound that is out of the ordinary should be inspected by a professional.
- Slow draining. Water will take longer to drain if your septic system is clogged or damaged, so be sure to take note of slow draining. Sometimes, slow draining is the result of another issue, particularly if the slow draining is confined to a single plumbing fixture. Your local septic contractor can help you identify whether you have a septic tank issue causing drain problems or if there is another culprit.
