What causes septic tank problems?

One of the main causes of septic tank problems is using the system incorrectly. This means putting solid items or grease down into your drains. This can lead to clogs or could affect the processes inside of the septic tank. There have been several times where our plumbing professionals have shown up for a septic tank repair only to find that the system was installed incorrectly, this can make it very difficult for water flow into the tank and drain away properly. If this is the case we can help you to choose from a number of effective systems suited to the needs of your particular property.

If your drains are emptying out slower than usual and you are starting to notice a foul odor coming from their general directions, contact our professionals right away. Nearby tree roots can also damage your septic tank by punching holes in the unit or the connected lines. If a sewer line collapse or bursts it can cause sewage to flood the soil around your property.

A final cause for septic tank issues is a lack of regular maintenance. It is important to schedule routine inspections for your septic tank, so minor issues can be caught early on helping to avoid more severe plumbing problems in the future.

How often does your unit need to be maintained?

Many different things are used to determine how often you should schedule maintenance for your septic tank. A very general guideline is that you should call us for septic tank maintenance once every two years. You might need to schedule maintenance annually if you have a smaller septic tank since problems can develop faster. Similarly, annual maintenance might be necessary if you are constantly encountering problems with your septic system.

An aging tank might require more frequent maintenance as well and may even need to be replaced. Larger and newer tanks may not require maintenance every two years, although it is still suggested to help extend the lifespan of the system. If your septic tank has not received maintenance in the last two years, then you should schedule service today.

How can you avoid problems in the future?

One simple way to avoid problems in the future is to always be aware of the limits of the septic system. Watch everything that goes down your drains. Never put solid items down a drain or in a toilet. The same is true of grease or other substances that could congeal and block parts of the septic system. The most effective way to avoid future complications is to schedule regular maintenance visits with our certified team of professionals. An unmaintained septic tank is bound to encounter a range of problems and will eventually need to be replaced.
