Signs That You Have The Need For Septic Sewer Services

Posted on: 5 July 2019

If you own a property that is not hooked up to the public sewage line, but instead has a septic tank, you will need to be extra cautious. You will need to make sure that you are well aware of the signs that may indicate that you are having trouble with your septic tank and therefore are in need of professional sewer services. If you are not already aware of what those signs might be, you will want to check out the following information.

Your House Is Smelling Less Than Fresh

If you happen to notice that the inside of your home is smelling like raw sewage, you need to quickly call for repair services. The reason your home will start to smell like raw sewage is that there is sewage wastewater starting to back up into the pipes, which are connected to your drains in the house. Before you know it, you could end up with sewage in your bathtub and sinks.

The Ground Is Suddenly Extra Soggy

If you walk outside and notice that the ground above and around where the underground septic tank is is suddenly feeling a little soggy, you need to call for emergency septic sewer services. This is a sign that the tank is either overflowing or there is a break in the sidewall or drain line, which is causing the yard to become soaked with sewage water. Since sewage water is toxic, you will need to keep everyone, especially kids and pets, away from that area until the problem is fixed and the soil has dried up.

You Have Trouble Flushing

Whether it is flushing the toilet or trying to drain the sink water, if you notice that it is hard to do, you will want to call for help. Slow moving drains all throughout the house can be a sign of a clog or a backed-up septic tank. You will need a plumber to help you figure out the cause and come up with a solution.

Now that you have those signs of septic sewer trouble in mind, you should have no trouble spotting trouble as it occurs. Just make sure that you are going to be proactive about the problems when they do arise. You do not want to try to brush off your initial concerns or try to ignore the problem hoping that it will resolve itself. As soon as there are any signs of trouble, you will want to make sure that you are getting in contact with a plumber or septic repair technician. Contact a company like Walt's Plumbing in order to learn more.


Irrigation Implementation: An Overview

I hope that the information here helps you be better prepared for what you can expect out of your irrigation system installation, including knowing when it's time to turn to a plumber for help.
