Your septic system may need repairs if you notice any of these signs:

  • You notice a sewage odor near and around your home -
    Your home shouldn't smell bad from plumbing. If you start to smell odd odors, this could be a sign that your septic tank is not properly performing and in need of repair.
  • Slow Draining in Your Home -
    Slow drainage can be an early indicator that that something is wrong with your septic tank and in need of pumping or repair.
  • Water on the Drain Field -
    Keep an eye on your drain field and look for any issues. If standing water is noticebly present or an unpleasant smell is coming from your yard or drain field, it may be a good idea to call for a septic tank inspection.
  • Backing Up Sewage -
    Slow drainage is usually the first sign of septic tank problems. It's possible that your septic tank can skip slow draining and go straight to backing up your entire system. If sludge appears in your bathtub this is another indicator that your septic system needs repair.
