There is no room for error when it comes to repairing a septic system at your home or business. People can eventually get sick if a leak, clog or crack goes unnoticed. Additionally, leaking sewage creates unpleasant smells that make it nearly impossible for people to stay on the property. The best course of action when your septic system is showing signs of trouble is to call in a licensed plumber with experience in septic management.

Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Greater Syracuse is both qualified and prepared to manage septic system issues in the Camillus area. We hire licensed plumbers who are certified by Onondaga County to handle any project related to plumbing, including septic tank overflow and other concerns that call for repairs.

What Is a Septic System Repair?

A septic system is responsible for taking in the wastewater from a home or business and treating it before it becomes groundwater that is suitable for use again. Our team prepares a range of septic repairs in and around Camillus. Common problems we treat include:

  • Overflowing septic tanks

  • Rusted, broken and missing tank baffles

  • Cracked and rusted septic tank receptacles

  • Broken and rusted septic lines

  • Greasy clogs and damage from caustic chemicals

The repair process will vary depending on the issue your septic system is experiencing. Some minor repairs might include:

  • Routine maintenance, including pumping the tank and checking the water flow.

  • Repairs or replacements for broken parts, such as pipes, lids and aerators.

  • Internal component replacement, which might include the motor baffles or vent components.

More extensive issues might call for a replacement drainfield or an alternative system for treatment. The best way to identify the type of repair you need is to call a professional for an inspection.

Why Get a Septic System Repair Done?

Sewage is one of the most dangerous substances you can handle because of its propensity for transferring disease and parasites. If you do not address small repairs right away, you can be responsible for these problems affecting your family and your community. When a serious health issue is on the line, be sure to call the most qualified septic tank service around Camillus.

How Often Should You Get a Septic System Checked for Repairs?

Generally speaking, a professional should inspect your septic system once a year. That said, the exact length of time depends on a few factors, including the size of your tank and the number of people in the home or commercial space. When in doubt, schedule an inspection sooner rather than later and see if your plumber has any recommendations for repairs.

In some cases, it may make sense to pump your septic tank at the same time as the inspection. Household septic tanks typically need pumping every three to five years, though this number also varies.

You should also schedule an inspection if you notice any overflow or other signs your septic system is out of order. Pay attention to the following red flags, which may indicate a septic problem:

  • Strong smells emanating from toilets or outdoors near your septic tank.

  • Soft or moist soil or standing sewage near your tank.

  • Backed-up toilets or basement drains.

  • Slow-flushing toilets.

  • Gurgling or whining sounds when a toilet is flushed.
