Your Everett Septic Repair
January 20, 2018
Superior Septic Services can take care of your Everett Septic Repair. Winter presents some challenges to septic repair. Frozen ground, possible frozen pipes, and other complications can even mean doing some temp work to get your household through until spring. But we promise we will do our best for you.
Winter is tough on plumbing, there is no doubt about it. Septic tanks have several areas of vulnerability to cold weather. The first is the potential for a frozen drain. If you have an above-ground tank, the problem could be a dysfunctional or frozen pump. Cold weather slows down the bacteria that lives in your septic tank – and that means less action breaking down solids. Sometimes propane or other heavy trucks are driven across a leach field, under the mistaken impression that there is nothing there, and the pipes that distribute the filtered liquids are crushed or broken. Of these things, the bacteria and the pump are the easiest cold weather fixes, with the frozen pipe being the next. The crushed leach field drains involve frozen ground, which can be an extreme difficulty. No matter the problem, we will do our best to help. We can even help with a holding tank rental if the situation is so severe that there is no repair possible before spring.
