4 Signs Of A Failing Septic System

Sometimes it can be hard to keep track of septic systems. It's normal to forget about it from time to time because it's not in your view every hour of the day. However, this lack of attention may permit system flaws to emerge. It's possible that your septic system will begin to slowly fail without your knowledge. Fortunately, Charlotte Septic Pros has compiled a checklist of indicators to alert you to serious issues. When you observe these warning signs of a failing septic system, it is time to act and prepare to contact a septic company.

Slow Drains

Clogs are the result of material accumulation in pipes, which prevents wastewater from flowing through and weakens water flow. Let's say you're taking a shower or washing your hands. More water continues to flow through the drains as the wastewater struggles to get past the substance buildup. Water will begin to pool beneath your feet as it takes longer than necessary for the water to drain. This can be a sign that your drains are draining more slowly than usual. You may need septic tank pumping, which could be another reason why your drains are slow. Make an appointment with a septic company and get a septic tank pumping right away.

Water Builds Up

This is just one of the many obvious indications that your septic system is having issues. When your septic system is working properly, waste typically accumulates at the bottom of the tank. This is where it should remain consistent until it's the ideal opportunity for the septic tank to get pumped. However, clogged septic system pipes can result in overflows onto your drain field or backups into your home. This generally prompts terrible scents to emerge around the area. Call Charlotte Septic Pros if you notice that wastewater is starting to overflow your drain field.

Water can also pool up near your drain field. A septic tank that fails will no longer be able to hold wastewater. As a result, the ground will naturally leak wastewater. It can result in dampness or a large pool of wastewater close to the drain field. A pool of water close to the drain field will typically seem as though it has been raining in your yard for quite a while. Be sure to actively look around for these signs in case you need emergency septic service.

Foul Odors

The presence of unpleasant odors close to the drain field and plumbing appliances is yet another sign of a failing septic system. When you walk outside and enter your lawn, if you notice strong, unpleasant odors, your septic tank has probably failed. You can arrive at a similar conclusion if the foul odors in your home are the same. These unpleasant odors indicate that sewage has reached your main drain line and climbed the drain field.

Gurgling Noises

When working with plumbing tools, you should also be on the lookout for unusual noises. For instance, you should call a plumber right away if you flush your toilet and hear strange gurgling sounds. When a toilet flushes, it typically emits water-related noises that subside. However, you clearly have a problem if you hear sounds similar to stomach pain. If your drains are making gurgling sounds, the same rule applies.

If you’re experiencing any issues with your septic tank, call Charlotte Septic Pros.
