What to Do if Your Septic System Fails

Septic Tank Pumping South Lyon, Michigan

Do you properly maintain your septic system?

Do you keep your drain field clear of debris?

Do you know how to recognize the signs of a failing septic system?

Failure to perform routine maintenance, such as pumping your septic tank generally at least every three to five years, can cause solids in the tank to migrate into the drain field and clog your system. 

If you notice one or more of these signs of a system failure, you should have your septic system inspected by a professional:

  • Pooling water or muddy soil around your septic tank
  • Backed up toilets and sinks
  • Bright green grass over your drainfield
  • Buildup of aquatic weeds or algae in lakes or ponds near your home
  • Unpleasant odors around your home

Septic systems usually fail due to neglect and poor maintenance. If you’re lucky, your system may be able to be repaired without complete replacement.
