Common Septic Tank Problems

Far too many homeowners deal with septic tank problems on a regular basis without realizing where the problem is coming from. Learn how to identify some of the most common septic tank problems before it's too late.

Slow Drainage

One of the most commonly overlooked issues of a septic tank problem is a slow drainage system. Remember that your wastewater is meant to drain into your septic tank, so if its taking awhile to drain, then there may be a problem with your tank.

Greener grass isn't always better

If you see an improvement in the quality of your grass in the area where your Lakeland septic tank is located, but you havent done anything different, then there might be a problem with your septic tank. Greener grass in that area can indicate that some sewage might have escaped, leading to more fertilizer for your grass. Great for your grass, not so great for your home.

Water backing up instead of draining

If you've been ignoring that slow drainage issue for a while, there's a strong chance that its going to evolve into a water backup problem. This happens when you try to drain water, and instead of going down, it goes back up the drain. This can pose a health risk for your family because the water that's coming back up your drains is wastewater.

Unpleasant odor

Of course, an unpleasant odor is always a sign of a septic tank issue. Septic tanks are designed to not let out any odor if it's working well, so if there is an unpleasant odor coming from the area where your tank is installed, then there might be a problem.

What's Causing All These Problems With My Septic Tank?

With all of these potential problems with your septic tank, you should be aware of what could be causing them so that you can stay on top of the problem. There are a number of things that can cause problems with your septic tank.

Careless flushing of items down the drain

Plenty of people don't really understand what you're supposed to flush down the drain and what you can't until it's too late. Unfortunately, this is the number one cause of septic tank problems. Flushing down wet wipes, too much toilet paper, and other sanitary products can cause these items to clog up your tank, leading to problems.

Overuse

You should be aware of the fact that the maintenance of your septic tank is largely dependent on the size of your tank and the number of people in your household. The more people and the smaller the tank, then the more maintenance you're going to need for your tank.

Lack of proper maintenance

One of the biggest causes of septic tank problems is the lack of proper upkeep and maintenance of this. You want to make sure that your tank is properly maintained so that you can avoid dealing with these problems before they have a chance of happening.
