Warning Signs Your Septic System is Failing, Palmyra, New York

There are many things in life that we take for granted.  One of them being when we flush the toilet, run the washing machine, or wash our hands the wastewater simply goes down the drain and is taken care of.  However, below the surface there is a lot going on.  All of that wastewater must be taken care of in an environmentally responsible way.  In the simplest of terms, the first stop for the wastewater is the septic tank where solids stay (to be pumped) and the liquids (effluent) is sent to a leach filed where it is filtered and dispersed.  All runs smoothly until your septic system begins to fail.

Some warning signs that you system is not functioning at optimal performance are:

  1. wet spots over the leach field
  2. backup into the house
  3. sunken/collapsed area over the septic tank or distribution box
  4. bad odors near the system
  5. slow draining or gurgling in sinks, showers, toilets
