  • If your home has consistent backups, then there is a problem with your septic tank. You may need to have your septic system emptied, cleaned, or replaced in the worst cases.
  • If you have a well and a septic system, have your well water checked if you think there is a problem with your septic system. If there is a leak from your septic system, it can contaminate well water and introduce nitrates, bacteria, and other contaminants that can make your household extremely sick.
  • If you see green grass around the drain field or septic tank area, then you could have a leak that is hazardous and needs immediate attention.
