Most homeowners ignore the inner workings of their home septic systems and simply care about whether they can easily flush their problems away. Unfortunately, regular maintenance is necessary to keep these systems running well. Even residents who perform yearly maintenance may unknowingly put extra stress on their septic equipment and may occasionally need help.
If you’re unsure about whether you have a problem with your septic system, the following signs are associated with serious septic system problems:
- Noxious smells coming from your basement or above ground near your septic tank
- Toilets refusing to completely flush
- Groaning, shuddering or gurgling pipes
- Sewage backing up into your home or pooling on your lawn
Each of these problems represents a serious health hazard, and it’s important to get immediate assistance. Mr Rooter Plumbing offers fast and affordable emergency septic service for Baldwinsville clients. However, we also present an easy way of avoiding emergency service through simple maintenance plans.
Maintaining Your Home Septic System
Regular maintenance is the easiest and most affordable way to keep your septic system running smoothly, and Mr. Rooter Plumbing stands out from the competition by hiring licensed plumbers who are also certified by Onondaga County to detect leaks and other plumbing problems. We offer reliable septic home maintenance, and we’ll take care of every complex step along the way.
For example, a home septic system consists of the following:
- A septic tank used for storing waste
- Baffles used for releasing a portion of that waste to a drainfield
- A drainfield responsible for safely filtering that waste and releasing clean fluid into the environment
Inside the septic tank, solids settle at the bottom while various byproducts and chemicals rise to the surface. Between them is a layer of relatively clean liquid that can be filtered out through the drainfield. The problem is, the bio-mas floating at the surface can become thick enough to clog baffles. This can send sewage back into your home or force cracks to appear in your septic tank.
Certain components can also rust, break or crack, releasing solid matter into your drainfield. If your drainfield becomes compromised, it will need to be excavated and retiled, an expensive, but necessary, task to prevent groundwater contamination.
