How would I know if my septic system is failing?
Failing septic systems are harmful because they can leak untreated wastewater, possibly transferring diseases to humans and other animals.
Septic systems on the brink can leak excessive bacteria and nutrients into the local ecosystem, destroying plant and animal habitats in the process. If you notice any of the following symptoms inside and outside of your home, you may have a problem with your septic system that needs to be addressed.
Muddy soil or pools of wastewater around your septic tank.
You may notice that the grass is green and lush near your septic tank area but that the ground is wet and mushy underfoot. Excess amounts of liquid from the failing septic tank can rise up, providing nutrient-rich waste to the soil adjacent to your home. You may notice a strong odor coming from the pools of wastewater.
Sewage odors inside your house.
Backups when you do laundry, take showers, or flush the toilet.
