Four Signs You Need a Septic Tank Repair

Here are some of the common signs that you need a septic tank repair:

1.  Sewage Backups or Persistent Clogs – If you have sewage backing up in your sink or toilets, there is a good chance your septic tank is full or has a problem. Persistent clogs that won’t go away no matter what you do are also a common problem when your septic tank is full.

2.  Slow Drains – While there could be other issues with your plumbing that are causing slow drains, one of the possibilities is that you need a septic tank repair.

3.  Standing Water – Standing or pooling water in your yard is an indicator that there is an issue with your drain field. Keep an eye on your property to ensure that your drain field is not overwhelmed.

4.  Very Green Grass—Your lawn should be the same color all over. If it’s greener on top of where your septic tank is buried, that could mean your tank is leaking or overflowing, causing that grass to be extra lush.
