A septic system can fail if you neglect to upgrade your system when necessary. Over time, it is also not uncommon for a septic tank to accumulate enough solid material that it will need to be pumped out by a professional so that your system doesn’t overflow.
Here are some septic system warning signs to look for:
- Are your toilets, showers or sinks requiring more time to drain?
- Have you noticed an unpleasant odour, especially after a heavy rainfall?
- Have you noticed gray or black liquids surfacing on your yard or backing up in your house’s fixtures?
- Is the grass over your septic system soggy when you walk on it?
If you answered yes to any or all of the above questions, you may be experiencing a septic bed issue. Annual septic system inspections are recommended to ensure your system remains functional.
