Top Signs of a Faulty Septic System

1. Foul Odor

One of the biggest issues in a septic system is a sewage backup. This can be caused by a variety of factors, including flushing certain items down the toilet or pouring grease down the garbage disposal. No matter the cause, a blockage in your system will eventually produce a displeasing scent. If you can't get rid of an odor, it may be originating within your pipes.

2. Slow to Drain

If your drains seem less efficient, this is a sign there is an issue within your septic system. While the problem can sometimes be solved using a cleaner, it is best to call a plumbing professional to ensure a thorough repair.

3. Puddles of Water
