When your home depends on the effectiveness of your septic system, it is critical that each component of your septic system remains in good repair. With regular septic system inspections and septic tank pumping, you can avoid many problems. However, from time to time your system may encounter issues that cause you concern. Here are a few warning signs and indicators that you are in need of septic tank repair:
- Bright green grass – The nutrients coming from leaking sewage can cause your grass to grow faster and with a bright green color. If you see grass like this in the area where your tank is buried, it could signal a problem.
- Foul smells near the tank – This foul smell could mean a leak in your septic tank or a problem with your drain field. If this is the case, then it is best to have a professional inspection.
- Slow drains – If you notice multiple drains throughout your house are draining slowly, it may be an indicator that there is a backup in your septic tank or a problem with one of the pipes.
