Hey, it’s Mark Reynolds here, to teach you how to diagnose whether your septic drain field has failed.
These are the common signs:
A) Sluggish outside house drains
B) Foul odors outside
C) Surfacing or ponding sewage
D) Liquid sewage running back to your tank after pumping
The U.S. EPA estimates 25% of all septic systems have failed, or are failing, as we speak.
We have a saying: If your septic system is telling you it’s time to pump, your drain field is in failure mode.
