How To Know When Your Septic System Needs Repair or Replacement

DVS Uncategorized

If your home has a septic system, you’re probably aware of the services that will help keep it working at maximum efficiency. You can keep it running smoothly with regular pumping or by having yearly inspections, but if you don’t take preventative measures to ensure optimal operation, then you could run into some problems.

When your septic system isn’t functioning correctly, you’ll know it. There are some indicators that you should take into account as a way to proactively attend to any potential issue.

Indicators that You Need Repair or Replacement

If you’re unsure about whether or not you need septic replacement in West Chester, PA or the surrounding areas, some signs could tip you off to recognizing an issue before it can get any worse. You may notice:

  • Greener Grass

Greener grass doesn’t sound like a problem, does it? While you may fertilize your grass, if you see one area of your yard growing greener or more densely than another part of your lawn that you’ve treated in the same way, then you could have a problem. Sewage and the waste within it could be leaking into your yard and making that area grow more efficiently.

  • Puddling in Your Yard

If you see puddles in your drain field, it’s more than likely that your septic system is failing. This is a sign that the system isn’t disposing of waste or water properly. Call us immediately so that we can take action to reduce the severity of this problem.

  • Sewage Backflow

When your sewage begins to make its way into your indoor plumbing, you need to call a professional. Not only is this devastating and unsanitary, but it means that your septic system is full; and at this point, pumping your septic tank might not be enough. When you have one of our technicians come out to your home, they’ll be able to identify the best course of action you can take.
