Due to upcoming spring thaws, incorrect landscaping, and water drainage, your septic can become hydraulically overloaded. A septic cannot handle that much ground water on top of your daily water usage. Depending on your drain field elevations, sometimes your sewer water comes up through the ground and mixes with the snow run off. This can cause unsanitary conditions, as well as a bad smell.
Below are some of the warning signs you don't want to ignore:
1. Water backup in the house
2. Your alarm buzzing/beeping
3. Saturated wet spots in the lawn or standing water in the drain field area
4. Bad septic smell
Besides excessive Spring melting, natural factors such as age, ground movement (settling) and years of deep frost can lead to cracking of the tanks and outdated pipes. Tree and plant root intrusions can lead to problems, like blocked treatment areas.
Then there are always the unfortunate accidents such as lines and tanks cracking or crushing due to excessive weight. An example for this would be driving over the septic area with a vehicle or heavy equipment.
Whatever the situation, give us a call, we can assess the damage and fix the problem. There are no jobs too small!
