Wondering if your septic tank is working properly? If you suspect that something is wrong with your septic tank but not sure what the problem is, you may need a septic tank replacement. To help guide you, here are the top signs you need a septic tank replacement.
- Standing Water in Yard – Septic tanks can last for several years. However, once you start to notice standing water beginning to accumulate in your yard, it’s time for a replacement. If your drain field is beginning to back up without it raining, you are in danger of your sewage backing up onto your property, which can be a homeowner’s nightmare.
- Sewage Backup – Additionally, if you start to notice raw sewage backing up in your drains, it’s time to call a professional immediately. This can happen when your septic tank is not working properly, and you likely need a replacement or pumping to resolve the issue.
- Bad Odor – Along with backed up sewage is bad odor. When a septic tank begins to fail, you’ll start to notice a very bad odor from sewage backing up or leaking. If you start to smell something bad, you’ll want to have your septic tank inspected immediately because you may be in need of a septic tank replacement.
