When it comes to septic systems and septic lift stations, “out of sight, out of mind”, is not the best way to think. There are a number of things hat can go wrong when it comes to moving wastewater in a residential or commercial setting. If a problem does occur, it is more cost effective to deal with it sooner, rather than later. Some of these issues include:
Pump and Pipe Clogs
Clogs can happen for a number of reasons, solid materials that end up being flushed, like wet wipes and paper towels, high density wastewater, and pipe corrosion. A sign you may have a problem is a slow drain in the bathtub or kitchen, or toilets that don’t flush properly or make gurgling sounds.
Tank and Pipe Leaks
Tank and pipe leaks are more common than you think. They typically occur from shifts in the soil, normal wear and tear, tree roots, and heavy vehicles driving on top of the system. Signs you have an issue is waste water pooling in the yard and that unwelcome smell of sewage. This is definitely something you don’t want to leave without repair. It can end up contaminating the soil and water.
