Did You Know? Since the Coronavirus pandemic, has more and more families staying at home, more water is being used than ever before, which can easily put excessive stress your septic system. The easiest way to save money is by staying proactive. Now is a great time to look for the signs of a septic system problem. 

Foul Odors

All the household water goes into the septic tank, dishwasher, washer, kitchen sink, toilets, baths and showers. As the septic tank gets filled with the home’s waste water, it starts to emanate strong pungent odors, the smells are usually offensive and strong. They usually can be detected from the kitchen sink or bathroom or outside around the drain field.

Slow Drains

If you notice the kitchen sink is draining slower than usual or in the bathroom, it may be more than just inconvenient. Do you remember the last time you had the septic tank pumped? It would be easier and less expensive to have the septic system inspected then to experience a full blown problem later.


Gurgling toilet and hope it was just a one time thing or that it would just get better on its own. This type of thinking and ‘turning a blind eye’, tends to lead to big trouble.


It’s never a good time for raw sewage backing up into your home or business. Whether it’s in your toilet, bathtub or kitchen sink, this is defiantly a sign you need to call Orlando Septic Services!

Drain field

The area of the drain field should look like the rest of the yard, if it is considerable greener and lush, it may indicate a septic system failure. If you notice the grass over the drain field is wet or pooling with water, this indicates a problem.  The drain field pipes may be clogged with waste particles, causing wastewater to rise to the surface.
