How to Know When your System is in Need of Repairs
There are always signs that indicate when something is wrong with your septic system. If you experience slow drainage, that is a definite sign that something is wrong. Before you give us a call, try using an EPA approved liquid drainage solution. If that doesn’t work, contact us right away. A sewage backup is the most obvious sign that a repair or upgrade is in order. Foul odors emanating throughout your house is like a warning signal letting you know that there is more to come. Gurgling noises coming from your pipes is another indication. Modern systems are accompanied by an alarm. It will either beep or the indicator light will flash to let you know that repairs are in order.
How to Repair
Septic systems are very simple technology. The repair methods are extremely straight forward and uncomplicated. We will use a roto-rooter device to snake out your pipes and unclog any debris. The septic technician will check water levels. If the water level is below the inlet, she will flush it out with clean water. Next, she will check the drain pipe. A snaking technique is utilized to unclog any trapped waste. It is common for the lid to be cracked or warped. We will repair or replace any damaged lids and scrape off any debris as a courtesy.
Septic Repair Costs
If you catch the malfunction in time, repair costs are minimal. This is why we stress annual inspections and maintenance. When clients call us as waste seeps out onto their floors, repair costs can sky rocket. If the septic technician can detect a failure before it happens, the repair costs won’t hurt your pockets. Our goal is to empower you with enough information to make informed decisions. Some repairs are so minor that anyone with the right tools can do it themselves. If you are physically unable, don’t have the time or are simply unwilling, contact Arnold Septic Service to handle all your septic repairs.
