Residential & Commercial Septic Tank Repair Company
If your septic tank starts to show signs of damage, it is important to repair it as soon as possible. Otherwise, your tank may deteriorate further or fail completely, necessitating a costly replacement.
It is also crucial to hire a professional septic tank repair company rather than attempting repairs yourself. DIY septic work can cause further damage, which may cost more to fix than the original issue!

Signs Your Septic Tank Needs a Repair
If you experience any of the following issues, call a licensed septic company as soon as possible.
Pooling water around the drain field: Often the first sign that your septic system needs to be serviced. Indicates that the tank is clogged or overfull.
Foul odors coming from the drain field: You should not be able to smell your septic tank under normal conditions. Foul odors indicates it is full or broken.
Slow drains: If you have had a household plumber clean your pipes, and the drains are still slow, your septic tank might be too full.
Drain field grass: If the grass around your drain field is considerably taller and greener than the rest of your lawn, it might be due to liquid (and, ahem, fertilizer) rising excessively.
Causes of Septic Tank Problems
Many septic tank problems are caused by people flushing things that should not be flushed, either down the toilet, sink, or garbage disposal. To keep it simple, the only item that should be flushed down the toilet (in addition to waste) is septic-safe toilet paper. You should also avoid heavy use of the garbage disposal.
