When there’s trouble with your septic tank or other parts of your septic system, you need fast service and the right solutions. This is exactly what Lakeland Septic Company has been providing for more than 15 years to our customers throughout the greater Lakeland, FL, region.
Signs That Your Septic Tank Needs a Repair
A well-built septic system will serve you for many years. But even the best septic tanks, drain fields, lift stations and other components won’t work perfectly forever. Although your septic system is below ground where you can’t see it, some signs of trouble are easy to spot.
Slow Drains - A single slow drain in your home may point to a problem with only that drain. There could be a clog or something else keeping it from draining. If all your drains are sluggish, it’s likely related to the septic system.
Sewage in Sinks or Tubs - When a septic tank is too full or when drainage is obstructed, you may see some raw sewage moving up into sinks or tubs. This is a clear sign that your septic system needs to be inspected sooner rather than later.
Issues with Toilets - As with sinks and tubs, if a single toilet is backing up or overflowing, the problem may be with that individual toilet. But it’s still a good idea to have your septic system checked out because it may not be long before all the toilets begin having problems.
Odors Inside or Outside Your Home - A variety of problems can cause sewage odor to escape the septic tank and move into your home or the air outside it. Fast service is needed if you notice this smell.
Beautiful Grass Over the Septic Tank - A common early sign of a septic tank backup is lush grass growing in the vicinity of the tank. If the grass over your tank stands out as the most beautiful in your yard, it may be receiving high levels of nutrients from a septic leak.
Soggy Ground - If you spot (or step in!) soggy patches of ground above or near your septic tank, it’s a clear sign that a problem exists. It may point to an issue with system filters, drain lines or the tank itself.
