For people living in rural areas in and around Needville, or for businesses located outside of city sewer services, maintaining a septic tank and field is a critical part of annual maintenance and care on the residential or commercial property.
Unfortunately, many people do not think about their septic system until there is a problem. The cost of septic tank backups can be significant, and spotting the early signs to contact septic pumping companies can help you to save money on repairs.
In most cases, septic pumping can solve a problem if the system is no longer working correctly. Of course, there may be other issues as well a such as broken lines, tree roots invading the lines or other similar issues. Generally, the top septic pumping companies can provide insight into the cause of the problem once they arrive at the property.
The key signs to look for signaling current or impending septic system problems include:
* Pooling water or very lush lawns – when there is water or damp soil around the septic tank or long the septic system drain field there is a problem with the tank. In the Needville area, particularly if there is no irrigation on the surrounding lawn, this often shows up as very lush grass growth in the areas over the septic tank and the drain field.
* Sewer Odor – a septic tank and field should never give off an odor. A septic tank which is full and is no longer allowing the microorganisms to break down waste material may be the cause.
* Sewerage backup in the house – after flushing the toilet or running water into any drain lines into the septic tank, look for signs of backup of the water in other bathroom or kitchen drains.
* Slow draining of showers, baths, sinks, appliances or toilets – when the septic tank is full, all drains from the home or business will become gradually slower over time.
Call into and compare prices and service from two or more septic pumping companies. Remember, there may be other issues to repair as well, and these will not be possible to determine until the technicians are actually on the property.
