Septic systems are out of sight, and unfortunately, for most people, oftentimes out of mind… until it’s too late. Many homeowners don’t consider having any pro-active repair work on their septic systems and as such, emergencies arise. How quickly the problem is attended to can result in the difference between having a system that can be repaired and having a system which now requires replacement.

Knowing how to tell when your system is in distress and what to do when these signs become evident can help keep your septic system working as efficiently as it can.

It’s being stored in an underground tank until a septic pumping firm is contacted to empty it. And so, it is the homeowners’ responsibility to schedule when to pump the tank.
