As the father of an autistic child, I have been faced with more than a few necessary home modifications projects. Unfortunately, with the high cost of raising a special needs child and my wife's decision to stay home and raise our son, there simply was no room in our budget to hire a contractor to complete these projects for us. Each weekend for nearly a year, I would pick a project to work on. This past month, I finally finished every project on my list. After learning more than I thought I would ever know about home construction and repair, I have a new found appreciation for the skills of general and specialty contractors. That is why I decided to start this blog to pay tribute to the job these contractors do, and help to empower more homeowners to take on the role of a contractor in their home.
It is extremely important for you to make sure that you are keeping an eye out for septic tank problems so you can call to have the issues dealt with before things get out of hand. After all, the last thing you want is for septic waste to end up all over the floors in your kitchen and bathroom. Take a look at the following signs that indicate that your septic tank is in need of some repairs.
You Are Having Trouble Draining The Sinks
If you are starting to notice that all of the drains in your house are now slow moving, or possibly not working at all, you will want to contact a plumber who can help with your clogged drains by looking at your drain lines, as well as your septic system. There is a chance that there is a clog or break in the drain line, somewhere between your house and the septic tank. Then again, there could be a clog at the entrance of the tank, where the drain line connects. A plumber can use a mini camera to see all of the inside of your drain lines and to where it connects to the tank.
There Is A Lot Of Gurgling When You Flush The Toilet
While there is usually noise when you flush the toilet, you should not see bubbles forming and hear loud gurgling sounds. If you are hearing or seeing anything like that, you are going to want to call for professional assistance. There is a good chance that there is a clog or that your septic tank is full. The tank could even already be overflowing, which will create even more problems.
There Is A Section Of Really Bright Tall Grass
If you go outside and notice that the section of grass above and around your buried septic tank is taller and brighter than the rest of the grass in your yard, you are in need of septic tank repairs. The problem could be that the tank is simply overflowing. However, a small crack could also be the problem and that crack will slowly release septic waste water from the tank, acting as a fertilizer for the grass.
Do make sure that you are looking to hire the most reputable septic system repair technician in your area, as this will help ensure that your septic tank will be back up and running efficiently as soon as possible. To learn more, contact a company such as West Sound Plumbing Service.Share
