4 Signs Your Septic Tank Might Need to Be Repaired or Replaced, Norwalk, Connecticut

A septic tank is a convenient and environmentally friendly alternative to connecting to a municipal sewer system, but it occasionally will need maintenance and repairs. All Star Rooter, Sewer and Drain Cleaning, the premier septic tank and sewer cleaning service in Norwalk, CT, will help you recognize when your system needs work and provide all the services you need to keep it running efficiently.

4 Signs Your Septic Tank Needs Repairs Or Replacement

Unpleasant Odors

Your septic system should not emit any scent when it’s working properly, so foul odors are an indication something is wrong. The tank could be full, cracked or otherwise damaged. Consult a professional septic tank service for an inspection.

Pooling Water & Unhealthy Grass

Water from your septic system shouldn’t reach the ground’s surface. Pools of water, swampy areas, or unhealthy looking grass above and around your septic tank indicate a leakage or overflow problem.

Drainage Problems

Norwalk-CT-septic-tankYour sinks should drain within a few seconds of the water being turned off. If it’s taking longer than normal, you might need septic tank service, although the problem also could be a clogged drain. A septic problem will affect all your drains, but a local blockage probably will impact just one.

Sewage Backups

In the worst-case scenario, sewage from an overflowing septic tank will back up into your toilets, sinks, and bathtubs. Sewage will contaminate your home, so it’s important to call a professional to fix the problem as soon as possible.
