Identifying Septic System Failures
All homeowners who rely on septic systems should be knowledgeable about the common signs of system failure and any septic system issues should be dealt with in a timely manner to avoid the health risks associated with exposed or improperly processed sewage. Knowing how to spot problems early can help reduce these risks.
Many septic issues can be detected from inside the house. Odd odors near drains or slow drainage in sinks and showers is cause for concern. If sewage begins to back up or you find dark liquids inside your toilets, your system should be serviced immediately.
Outside, the two biggest warning signs include foul odors and wet ground that is not explained by rain or use of a hose. Both of these are probable evidence that the system is no longer processing your wastewater correctly. If you notice these symptoms between your house and tank, you likely have a broken pipe. If the symptoms appear beyond the tank, your drainfield may be clogged and require replacement.
If you suspect that water is leaking from the system, the area needs to be avoided. If necessary, use a blockade or fence to keep children and animals away from the potentially contaminated area.
To properly assess your septic problems, our experts will perform numerous tests during the site evaluation to accurately determine the most efficient and budget-friendly solution.

Septic System Repair Services in El Monte
One of the best ways to prevent the need for septic system repair in an emergency is to make pumping out your tank a priority. In many cases, periodic repairs could have been prevented if there was enough room in the septic tank for wastewater to continue on its way. For homes, we generally recommend having the tank pumped every three years, and for businesses, how often pumping is needed depends on the size and type of the operation, as well as the size of the tank. Our team at West Coast Sanitation specializes in residential and commercial septic services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
You shouldn’t need to worry about your wastewater. Our team at West Coast Sanitation is fully equipped to provide the services you need so you can enjoy peace of mind that your essential septic system is doing its job!
