When to Contact your Septic CompanyAll too often, home and business owners call their septic company in an emergency. Calling for an immediate repair while you are in a frenzy is never good for the nerves. At Custom Septic, we are here for all of your emergency septic system needs. We recognize that when things are going wrong, you need someone there fast to get the job done. However, we want to do more for our clients than be a phone call away. Many septic issues that end in an emergency are all preluded by several warning signs that your septic system needs to be serviced. At Custom Septic, we want to give you common reasons and signs that your septic system could be on the fritz. Being more aware of these signs can help save you stress, time and money, prevent those ghastly emergencies and increase the life of your current septic system.

Ooh, that Smell! No, we aren’t talking about Lynyrd Skynyrd here! We are talking about all of the strong and smelly odors that your septic system can give as a warning sign that something is going wrong. As your olfactory nerve takes to an investigation, let us know exactly where you smell it. Is it in your toilet? Could it be outside near that septic tank? Is your garbage disposal stinking up your kitchen? The more information you have, the better we can narrow down the problem. From leaks to smelly pipes to overflowing septic systems, we want to find the problem and repair it before the issue becomes gravely worse.

The Grass Is Not Always Greener

While your grass may be looking quite green, it’s not always an area that people will be envious of. A higher volume of weeds or grass growth around your septic area could mean a potential leak. Whether you have too small of a tank or it’s been too long since your last pump, a massive increase in green growth around your septic system isn’t always a good thing!

Soggy Soil or Standing Water

We all love to swim but swimming in your septic drainage is never recommended. If you start to notice soggy soil or standing water where it doesn’t normally belong, it’s time to call your septic company. This problem can quickly hasten if not corrected and can be quite costly. Letting us come out and take a look at the problem. We can save you thousands, but it should be done quickly.

In more obvious situations, like your septic tank alarm going off or failing a well water test, it’s important to not delay and go ahead and let us take a look. These warning signs are all here for a good reason. Heeding these warnings can save you lots of stress and money in the long run.
