Septic Plumbing: Dealing With Property Drainage

How Do I Remove Standing Water?

septic-plumbingThe standing water near your patio, driveway, or sidewalk should be removed immediately. If left untreated, you can expect bad odors, mold growth, and concrete cracks. The puddles also attract mosquitoes, which can affect your family’s health. A storm drain will channel water away from your foundation and redirect it to nearby streams.

How Do I Drain Water Near Septic Equipment?

Your septic system only holds a specific amount of water. If rain floods the area near equipment, call a septic plumbing specialist immediately. They have the tools to drain the system and provide any needed repairs. Place landscape barriers near the area to redirect runoff water and prevent future flooding. 

Are There Any Preventative Measures I Can Take?

You can install a sump pump to channel rainwater away from your property. This will help you rest easy knowing heavy rain won’t flood your basement or turn your yard into a swamp.
