If you have a septic system, you are probably familiar with the need to call on a professional for septic tank pumping or cleaning on a periodic basis. This is the single most important thing you can do to protect your system from problems. However, even if you are diligent to get your tank pumped on a recommended schedule, it doesn’t mean you’ll never experience issues or need repairs from time to time. At Metro Septic, we can provide a wide range of septic services, including these three most common septic repairs:
- Pipe Repairs – Many times, the damage or failure is not in the septic tank itself. Instead, you may need repairs within the pipes that transport the wastewater from you home to the tank, or from the tank to your groundwater or drain field. This may include worn out sections of your pipe, damage from tree roots, clogged pipes or other issues.
- Drain Field Issue – Drain field failure needs to be addressed sooner rather than later, as this type of problem could cause groundwater contamination. If you notice strange odors in your yard or areas of soggy grass over the drain field, these are warning signs of a drain field issue.
- Aerobic Bacteria Replacement – A balance of active aerobic bacteria is critical to support waste breakdown within your tank. However, if this bacteria becomes dormant or compromised, the tank can become unbalanced and unable to do its job. Bacteria replacement may be necessary.
At Metro Septic, we not only handle these repairs with excellence, but we make it a priority to explain to customers how these issues occurred in the first place. This can sometimes involve changing waste disposal habits or simply being more careful about what you put down your drains. If you need septic tank repairs in the greater Marietta area, call us today!
