Situations When You Need Residential Septic Services…Fast!

Septic Services LakelandPosted bySeptic Services LakelandFebruary 7th, 2017

The first situation when you’ll need to get hold of residential septic services is if you see sewage surfacing in your yard. The cause could be a system blockage, excess water entering the system, an undersized soil treatment system, or controls/pump failure. Reduce water use, and wait for the pro to arrive.

residential septic servicesHere are some other situations that may require residential septic services:

  • Sewage backup in your home: This is a serious health risk – do not come into contact with the effluent! The cause could be a blockage in the plumbing system, roots clogging a pipe, pump failure, a running toilet, or excess water from a leaking faucet. Reduce water use and wait for residential septic services professionals to arrive.
  • Sewage odor outdoors: Not a serious health risk but a major nuisance. The cause could be a damaged or removed inspection pipe cap, inoperable drain field, or the manhole cover is fully or partially open. Secure or replace the manhole, check the caps and replace, and if you suspect a problem with the drain field, call a pro.
  • Sewage odor indoors: Serious – toxic gases may cause illness or discomfort. The cause may be improper plumbing, sewage backing up into your home, or sewage surfacing in your yard. Enlist the help of residential septic services because the tank may need pumping.
  • Pump alarm activates: Solids may be entering the drain field, or effluent may be backing up into your home. Check the plugs and breaker, and then call a pro.

    Thanks for the information. Just like you said, it’s important to get your tank inspected on a regular basis. That’s the best way to ensure that it doesn’t break. Do you have any other tips for me?
