Common Problems With Septic Systems
Septic systems are relatively simple in their operation, and when they fail it's usually from a lack of maintenance, user neglect, or in some situations, a poorly installed system.
Some of the most common septic system repairs include:
Repairing or replacing damaged septic tank baffles: Baffles are essential components that help prevent solids from flowing out of the tank and into the drain field. Over time, baffles can deteriorate or become damaged, requiring repair or replacement.
Fixing leaking or damaged septic tanks: Cracks or leaks in the septic tank can lead to wastewater seeping into the surrounding soil, posing environmental and health risks. Repairs may involve patching small leaks or replacing the entire tank in more severe cases.
Clearing clogged or blocked pipes: Clogs in the pipes leading to or from the septic tank can result in sewage backups or slow draining. These clogs can be caused by a buildup of solid waste, grease, or foreign objects. Clearing the blockage typically involves using specialized equipment like a sewer snake or hydro jet.
Repairing or replacing a malfunctioning pump: Some septic systems use pumps to move wastewater from the tank to the drain field. If the pump fails, the system may not function properly, requiring pump repair or replacement.
Drain field repair or rejuvenation: Drain fields can become clogged or damaged over time, leading to poor wastewater absorption and potential system failure. Repairs may involve adding more drain lines, replacing the existing lines, or using techniques like soil fracturing to improve absorption.
Fixing distribution box problems: The distribution box is responsible for evenly distributing wastewater from the septic tank to the drain field. If the box is damaged or improperly leveled, it can lead to uneven distribution and potential system failure. Repairing or replacing the distribution box can help resolve these issues.
Addressing root infiltration: Tree roots can infiltrate the septic system's pipes or tank, causing blockages or damage. Removing the roots and repairing any damage is essential to maintain the system's functionality.
Regular maintenance and timely repairs can help prevent more severe septic system problems and prolong the system's life.
