You’d be forgiven if your septic system wasn’t always at the forefront of your mind. After all, there is so much for a busy homeowner to keep track of, and a whole lot of that stuff is right in front of your face. Of course, that’s no excuse to let essential septic system repair slide. After all, no one wants to suffer from a broken or disabled septic system.
If you’re worried that you might have an issue with your septic system, here are some warning signs to look for.
Your lawn is damp (or extra healthy)
Now that spring has finally arrived, and summer is right on its heels, you’re probably paying more attention to your lawn than at any other time of the year. While you’re on the lookout for potential gardening projects, take a few moments to look for trouble signs concerning your septic system, as well.
If there is a perpetual damp spot in your yard, it could mean a leak somewhere in your septic system. If you notice that your grass is growing faster than normal, that could be a warning sign, too.
A bad smell
One of the most common signs that people require septic system repair is a pervasive smell like sulfur that emanates from their fixtures or lawn. This is a sign that something is amiss with the bacterial balance of the system.
Slowly leaking drains
Have you noticed that your sink, bathtub or shower drain is draining slower than usual? Are there pools of standing water in places where there shouldn’t be? The first suggestion is to try a mild drain cleaning solution. If that fails, however, it could indicate that your septic system needs professional assistance.
Easily the most dreaded repercussion of a failing septic system is a full-on sewage backup. You don’t need decades in the industry to understand that if your family’s waste is coming up through your drains, you have an emergency on your hands.
Preventative maintenance can be a cure-all
The key to avoiding any and all of the issues above is routine septic system maintenance, plain and simple. If you have a qualified professional regularly inspecting your septic system, it can go a long way toward avoiding any issues.
