Septic Repair Service RiversideYou rely on your septic system to keep your home’s plumbing properly draining, so it’s important to take care of it to prevent problems. Here are five signs your septic system needs repair.
1. Sewage Backup
If raw sewage is backing up into your home through the toilets or drains, it’s a clear sign something isn’t working properly in your system.
2. Flooded Leech Field
If you notice your leech field looks swampy or flooded, you should have your septic system inspected and repaired right away, so the problem is fixed before other parts of your property are contaminated.
3. Water Contaminated
If your water source is a well on your property, issues with your septic system could contaminate your water, leading to sickness and other serious problems for your and your family. If your well water shows positive signs of contamination, check your septic system.
4. Odors
If you start smelling unpleasant sewage odors either inside or outside your home, it could be a sign that your septic system isn’t draining properly.
5. Slow Drainage
A single slow drain in your home is usually the result of a clog or other self-contained problem. However, if all the drains start running slowly, it’s most likely an issue with your septic system.
It’s essential to keep your septic system functioning properly to prevent unpleasant and even dangerous consequences. There are several signs that your system could need repair such as sewage backup or slow drains. To learn more about septic system repair, call West Coast Sanitation at 951-780-5922.

  2. Thanks for going over some signs of a septic system that needs to be fixed. I didn’t know that it’s possible that these issues could contaminate your water, or that there are some signs of this. I’m kind of interested to learn more about what these are. It seems like being able to identify these in a well is incredibly beneficial to your health.

  3. I didn’t realize that septic tank issues could possibly contaminate your water. The last thing we need is for people to be getting sick because of bad water. I will probably have some regular maintenance done to avoid this.

  4. The best part of your article for me is when you talked about how you must consider septic tank repair if all your drains start to run slowly. I was washing the dishes last night when I noticed that our drainage in our kitchen takes longer time than the usual to drain the water. I checked the toilet and noticed the same problem. Now that I’m aware that this can be a problem in our septic tank, I will make sure to contact a professional to help us as soon as possible.

  5. What appealed to the most in your blog is when you suggested repairing your septic tank once you start to smell unpleasant sewage odor around your property. It has been 2 days since our house has started to smell like there’s a rotten egg in it. We don’t exactly know what action should we do in order to eliminate the odor. Now that I’m aware that the problem is our septic tank, I’ll make sure to hire a professional for help. Thanks!
