We Know Your Home Septic System
Knowing the basics of how your home septic system works is essential to identifying problems when they arise. Mr. Rooter of Greater Syracuse has a team of plumbers who are experienced and considered septic tank experts. During our repair process, we keep our customers informed of the process and the best maintenance once we are gone. To keep your septic system in shape, we want to help you be familiar with it. The main components of your home septic system are:
- Septic tank: Your septic tank is a sealed container buried under your lawn that receives and stores sewage waste flushed out of your home. When in the tank, solid wastes settle to the bottom while liquid waste is absorbed into the surrounding field.
- Tile absorption field : Surrounding your septic tank is a series of trenches containing gravel or crushed stone known as the tile absorption (or nitrification) field. The tile absorption field draws liquids out of the septic tank, where they are filtered and returned to the soil.
Your septic system relies on a delicate balance to ensure it does not release waste material into the soil, where it can enter wells and contaminate your drinking water. A thorough inspection by Mr. Rooter Plumbing can ensure your septic system is working properly. Our team of experts can perform a number of soil tests and inspections of your clean out and perforated lateral lines and your distribution box.
A yearly checkup of your septic system will give you the peace of mind of knowing your septic system is functioning properly and won’t require expensive emergency repairs.
Signs of Septic Tank Issues in Your Home
The more often our team can get to your home for a regular septic inspection, the easier it will be to avoid costly repairs. The following signs could indicate damage to your home septic system – contact us as soon as you notice any of them for prompt service:
- Standing water in the lawn.
- Damp spots near septic system piping and hookups.
- Strong sewage odors in your backyard.
- Sinkholes appearing in your yard, particularly if they have a sewage smell.
- More rats, mice and insects in your lawn than usual.
- Slow-draining sinks.
- Pools of water around basement drains.
- Toilets that don’t refill completely.
Of course, some of these symptoms can be attributed to common plumbing problems such as a clogged drain or damaged piping. To be certain, go with the team that knows both plumbing and septic treatment. When you call us for residential septic service, Mr. Rooter Plumbing will send an expert who can properly diagnose septic system problems, avoiding the need for costly, time-consuming troubleshooting repairs.
As an independently-owned franchise of a nationwide chain, we have the resources local septic system contractors don’t. This includes our exclusive video inspection technology that can give us an intimate look inside your septic system to identify problems with certainty.

Residential Septic System Pumping
Even if your home septic system is properly maintained, it will still require pumping out on a regular basis. The New York State Department of Health recommends a home septic system be pumped out every two or three years, or whenever the amount of waste exceeds a third of the liquid depth of the tank. Don’t trust anyone but the home septic system experts at Mr. Rooter Plumbing to perform this important regular maintenance item with diligence and respect for your property. Septic cleaning is dirty business – only Mr. Rooter Plumbing takes the time to ensure your lawn and property are left undisturbed throughout the process.
