Signs Your Septic System Is In Trouble
A septic tank is used when there is no connection to a public sewer line. All household liquid waste from laundry machines, sinks, bathtubs and toilets are drained or flushed into the tank. Inorganic items or items that are difficult to decompose eventually sink to the bottom of the tanks as sludge while other solids float as scum on the top. In between is the gray water that is drained out into the absorption area. Bacteria in the tank and in the waste itself decompose the solids allowing them to be drained out with gray water.
Periodically, your septic tank needs to be cleaned to get rid of the sludge on the bottom. If that material is allowed to accumulate it can seriously hamper the draining of the gray water resulting in a "full" septic tank. When the tank is full there is nowhere for the waste to go except back up and out the drains in the house. That’s an emergency septic tank situation.
Here are a couple of signs that your septic tank is about to backup:
- Gurgling sounds coming out of your toilets
- Sluggish drainage
- A sewage odor outside
- Unusually green grass in the absorption area
- Damp grass or raw sewage appearing in the absorption area
