Call Mr. Rooter for Septic System Repairs
Trying to fix your septic system yourself, or leaving it in the hands of less experienced or unlicensed plumbers, can be disastrous. It is not hard for a small septic system problem to become a big, foul-smelling, hazardous, expensive one.

Of course, if it has reached the stage where you require a major repair, we can do that, too, and we’ll provide you with a free upfront estimate so you can budget accordingly.
Signs of Septic System Damage
If you suddenly detect a strong sewage odor coming from the area around your septic tank, it is a good bet that you need immediate septic system repair. But there are other signs you can look for to help you identify septic system problems so you can take care of them fast, including:
- Pools of standing water in your yard
- Soft, damp soil in the area around the septic tank
- Backed up, slow-to-flush or noisy, bubbling toilets
Potential Causes of Septic System Damage
Why might there be damage to your septic system? There are any number of reasons why you may have septic system damage, including:
- Trees: If you have trees planted close to your septic system, the roots could grow into the area where you have laid out your septic system, causing interference and possible damage.
- Rainwater: Believe it or not, if enough rainwater gets into your system, it can cause the tank to overflow.
- Food or Grease: Your septic system is designed to filter ordinary waste or paper, not large particles of food or grease. Too much of these in your system can definitely necessitate repair.
Why a Properly Functioning Septic System Is Important
If you ignore needed septic tank repair, the problems will only get worse. Sooner or later, you risk problems like your toilets backing up and groundwater contamination. This can make your home uninhabitable until you resolve the problem, and you may even be subject to local fines for failure to take care of your property.
