4 Signs it’s Time for a Septic Tank Repair , Koolaupoko, Hawaii

If you are among the millions of Americans with a home that has a septic tank, you must pay careful attention to your system to ensure it runs smoothly. Most likely you already know that you need regular inspections and pumping to keep your system in excellent condition. In addition, you should always look out for these signs you may need a septic tank repair.

Do You Need a Septic Tank Repair?

1. Slow Draining

One clogged drain may simply signal the buildup of hair, food, or other debris. However, if multiple drains throughout your home seem to be draining slowly, it may be due to a septic tank backup or damaged pipe. Call in a professional as soon as possible before the problem causes water damage to your home. 

2. Foul Smells

If you smell a foul, pungent odor outdoors, you may have a sewage leak on your hands. If the septic tank or any pipes begin to leak, it won’t take long for soggy spots and unpleasant smells to emerge. 

3. Bright Green Grass

If you notice a very bright green patch of grass on your property near where your septic tank is located, your system may have suffered a leak. Sewage contains nutrients that may cause your grass to grow rapidly, leading to brighter patches.  

4. Sewage

If you notice any sewage entering your home through the drains, call a professional immediately; your system has backed up. A technician will need to perform a prompt septic tank repair and sanitation to protect you and your family.
