Septic system failure is something you want to avoid. Your septic system treats wastewater that exits your home from your bathrooms, laundry room and kitchen. If it is not working properly, the sewage can release bacteria, chemicals and waste into area waterways, making the water unsafe to drink and use for the local area. There are many causes for septic system failure including poor installation, overuse of water, lack of septic system maintenance and a small drainage field. If you think that your septic system is not working correctly and are concerned about a septic system failure, contact the team at Custom Septic, Inc. immediately. Our crew can quickly access your system for problems, and repair and/or correct them so that you do not have future problems.
