Having a septic system on your property is an efficient way to deal with waste, but septic systems need regular septic drain field maintenance in order to prevent septic system repair problems. If you have a septic system, septic drain field maintenance is something you just can’t go without.
The following is a list of common signs that you need maintenance and/or septic system repair:
- Can you barely stand to be in your backyard because of the smell? Foul or unpleasant odors surrounding your system means it’s time for scheduled maintenance.
- When your septic tank is full, you may find that your toilets are backed up and won’t seem to flush, no matter how many times you plunge them.
- If it’s been a few years since you had septic maintenance done, you should put this on your to-do list. Homeowners should generally have their system tended to every three to five years. You should do this even if it appears to be working fine.
- Small puddles of water throughout your yard or an abundance of smelly water surrounding the tank might indicate a problem.
