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.
