Top Signs You Need Emergency Septic Services

It can be difficult to recognize when you need emergency septic services. It’s important to learn these signs so you can quickly resolve your problem without extensive damage occurring. To help guide you, here are the top signs that you need to call emergency septic services.

  • Pooling Drainfield – If you begin to notice water pooling around your drainfield, your tank likely is full and needs to be pumped. Wastewater should easily remain in your water tank and steadily make its way through the drainfield. Pooling water indicates that there is some sort of clog or complicated issue that needs a professional’s attention.
  • Sewage Back Up – Though this is an advanced sign, sewage backing up in your toilets, sinks, and showers is an indicator that you need to call a septic professional immediately for septic services. Having the smell of sewage in your home is not something you want to wait on, so call us immediately to resolve the issue.
  • Septic Alarm Going Off – If the alarm to your septic system is going off, this can mean a couple different things. A sounding alarm can indicate that your system is having a hard time processing the waste due to high water usage or you have a leak. If your alarm sounds, shut your water off and call a professional immediately.

We hope these signs will help you indicate if you are in need of emergency septic services. If you have any questions regarding our emergency septic services, contact us today at Sauer Septic!
