Not many people get up in the morning wondering, “Is my septic system working ok?” We take for granted that it is doing what it is supposed to do – managing our sewage. And that is how it should be if there are no problems. But when one arises, it can bring life to a halt. Toilets may not flush right, foul odors can arise, and it may be time for repairs. If problems start to arise, it may time for septic pumping in Snohomish.
Here are some indications it is time to give Superior Septic Services a call:
If you notice standing water where the drain fields are in your yard, it could mean a full septic tank. When the tank is full, the water has nowhere to go but out into the yard. It can also mean a leaky valve, but it definitely means there is a problem.
Once the wastewater is processed in your septic system, it is then leached into the drain field. When done right, there are no fouls smells. When the tank needs pumped, it can spill over sewage which can be very foul-smelling.
If your drains are tanking a long time to empty, this is another sign the tank may be full. The water is trying to filter through a full system, and the system is trying to push it out with no luck.
