When you first have your septic system installed, your contractor hopefully provided you with a list of trouble signs to keep an eye out for. If you smell something foul coming from your drains, if your yard is damp or if your drains are emptying at a worryingly slow pace, you could have a problem that requires professional septic system maintenance.
If you’re not experiencing any of those overt signs of trouble, you might think your septic system is doing just fine. However, you could be wrong.
A community issue
There’s another facet of owning a septic system of which you may not be aware, and that’s a commitment to keeping your community safe and clean. When you install a septic system, it’s up to you to make sure that it is installed correctly
There is so much thought that goes into the design and placement of your septic system. Mistakes mean more than just your family’s discomfort, too—an improperly installed or maintained septic system can pose a threat to your community’s drinking water.
Improperly maintained septic systems pollute groundwater
More than half the communities in the United States rely on groundwater as their primary source of drinking water. That’s more than 150 million people from sea to shining sea. And one poorly maintained septic system can gum up the works for thousands of those people who rely on clean groundwater.
When your septic system isn’t put in the correct spot, or if you leave too much time between routine inspections, your septic system could leak harmful substances like bacteria or viruses, household chemicals and a variety of other contaminants. Think about everything you flush down your drain, because you definitely wouldn’t want a good portion of that waste to end up in the water you drink.
The hazards of contaminated groundwater
Poorly maintained septic systems are one of the most common reasons that groundwater becomes unusable. A leaking septic system can lead to the formation of potentially terminal diseases like hepatitis and dysentery.
That’s to say nothing of the potential toxins that are helpful in a septic system but flat-out dangerous when ingested. And you can put a stop to all of it with one simple call.
