No one wants a failing septic system. Problems with your septic system could cause odors in and around the home, sewage backup, and slowly draining pipes. Fortunately, though with proper maintenance and the right service, servicing septic systems in Pennsylvania doesn’t have to be a huge hassle.
Whether you’re just looking for routine maintenance or you’re concerned about an issue with your septic tank, we’re here to help you identify the problem and provide the service you need. Here are some symptoms of common problems you might notice:
- Slowly Draining Sinks, Bathtubs, and Toilets. Nothing is worse than standing in inches of dirty shower water or a toilet that won’t drain properly. Often, slowly draining pipes are a symptom of a bigger problem. We can help you determine whether these issues can be repaired or if a replacement is needed, then provide quick and affordable service to get things running smoothly.
- Standing Wastewater In or Around Your Drain Field. Have you noticed saturated soil or standing water in your drain field? Sometimes this can occur with aging septic systems or if your drain field is too small. This leakage occurs when the drain field is unable to absorb all of the waste. If this is the case, you may need to install perimeter drains to help with draining. For more serious issues, this could be a sign that your septic system needs to be replaced.
- Septic Tanks Alerts. For those of you that have a tank alert system, there’s an even easier way to determine if your septic tank needs to be serviced or replaced. Tank alert systems allow for you to turn on a horn alarm that will notify you when your system needs to be serviced. You can test this alarm to ensure it works. If the alarm does go off, be sure to call your provider immediately to address the issue before it gets too far. Check out our video below to see how to ensure your alarm is set up to notify you of any issues.
