Common Septic Problems

Septic systems are responsible for collecting household waste and allowing it to filter out into the soil around your home. When non-biodegradable matter is flushed down the drain, however, it builds up in your tank and can cause it to overflow. That's why regular pumping and cleaning is an important part of septic system maintenance.

A typical system will require pumping once every three to five years, depending on how diligent you are about keeping out fats, oils and grease (FOG) and other types of harmful waste matter. Other common septic system problems include overflowing due to rain water leakage and pipe damage from root intrusion or burrowing animals.

Septic Inspections: What's Involved

A septic inspection involves more than just checking the level of your tank. While it's always good to know how full your tank is and plan accordingly, septic systems are highly complex and require more comprehensive checkups on a regular basis. When you contact Mr. Rooter Plumbing for a septic system inspection in Auburn, we will:

  • Make sure tank covers are properly installed and are secure to prevent rainwater from leaking in
  • Perform a video inspection to look for damage to tank inlets, outlets and piping
  • Inspect the condition of tank baffles
  • Monitor drain field flow back
  • Perform any service to your septic pump as required by the manufacturer
  • Visually inspect for cracks, holes or other issues in the pump tank
  • Inspect distribution boxes for damage, check water levels and adjust as necessary
