The septic system on your home is a very important and intricate system that needs care, maintenance, and attention. If there is an issue with your septic tank, it can spell disaster for your home. A septic problem is not something to mess around with, and if you suspect your tank needs a repair, or some other type of attention, you need to be sure you call a septic service for help. Read on for a few signs that may indicate your system needs to be serviced.

1. Gurgling Noises In Your Drains

The drains of your home may gurgle or make other noises from time to time if the septic tank is full, or if you have a clog somewhere in your home. If you hear these noises, whether you're showering, doing laundry, or after you've flushed, you need to pay attention to these noises. Check to be sure you don't have a clog in your drains and then you need to check your septic tank. If the tank is full, it can also cause this issue.

2. Flooded Septic Field

The septic field in your yard can end up getting flooded if the septic tank begins to get too full. If there is an issue with the water table, such as a lot of rain, that can cause flooding to occur as well. If you have a flooded septic field, you need to have your septic tank looked at to be sure there isn't a problem, or that your tank doesn't need to be emptied. If your tank is full, it can flood your yard with unwanted sewage that can leave you and your family wearing clothespins on your noses.

3. Sewage Is Backing Up Into Your Drains

If you have a sewage backup in you drains, it's a major issue. This may indicate a tank issue, or a clog somewhere, leaving the sewage nowhere to go but back into your drains. If you have a sewage backup, call a septic service company right away for help with this issue.

To prevent an issue with your septic tank, be sure you are using the proper toilet paper in your drains, specifically, toilet paper that dissolves quickly. Also be sure you are not flushing anything else down your drains that can cause a clog such as feminine products or wipes. If you have an issue with your septic tank, call a septic services company for help.
