Your septic system is one of the strongest and most durable systems in your home. That is a good thing, since it is responsible for flushing away waste. However, even a strong septic system can become damaged and cause a problem for you and your family. If you have noticed changes with your septic system or are concerned about it, the team at Custom Septic, Inc. can respond to your needs quickly and thoroughly so that you do not end up with a mess on your hands. When it comes to septic issues it is better to error on the side of caution and contact an expert.
Possible Causes of Septic System Problems
If your city/county authorities have determined it is necessary to dig in the area of your septic system, for example, an inexperienced worker operating a piece of equipment can do great damage to your septic system, including causing cracks and/or ruptures of your septic tank. Digging in the wrong location can damage the pipe system underground. Light machinery can even damage your septic tank cover. Roots from your yard can also grow into the pipes that run under your home. No matter the cause, Custom Septic is able to repair your septic system problem.
Our septic system repair processes cover virtually every possibility. If your septic system is not vulnerable to the heavy machinery of municipal workers or the roots of your trees, it could be vulnerable because of irregular maintenance. It is important to remember that a septic system is a combination of durable materials and finely balanced bacterial and metabolic processes. Over time, if not maintained properly, you could find that your toilets are slow to flush, bathtubs and sinks are slow to drain, and odors may enter your house through your plumbing.
Importance of Routine Septic System Maintenance
If a foul odor is coming from your plumbing, you are likely to notice quickly. But before that happens, it is possible for damage to occur to pipes underground or in your leach field. If the weather has kept you from spending time in your yard, you may not notice the telltale signs of septic system problems until those odors make their presence known inside your home.
We recommend doing periodic checks around your septic tank and leach field so that early signs of damage or failure can be addressed sooner than later. In addition to water build-up in locations on your property, you may also notice greener grass near your septic system than in other parts of your lawn. An imbalance in your septic tank can cause that to happen and may be a sign that your system needs some attention.
