Your septic system is a collection of various parts working hard to make your home or work property a cleaner place. The septic tank, for example, is where all the wastewater is pumped and it gets fresh with clean water to transform it into clean water again.
The septic tank filters the sludge and debris from the water, separating it from any of the solid particles. The filter will continue to work until it becomes overwhelmed with things that shouldn’t be there, such as excessive fiber from cloths, which can cause a flood.

Common Signs of Septic Tank Failure
- Slow Drains — When a septic system fails, it can create slower draining time for sinks and bath tubs. If you notice that water is not draining quickly enough when taking a bath or washing the dishes, it could be an indicator of your septic tank failing.
- Bad Odors — When sludge and waste build up in your tank, it can cause problems in the future. When you start to notice foul odors near your home or business, that might mean your tank is close to failing.
- Health of Grass Near Drain Field — A septic tank is connected to a drainage system, which can either distribute more of the water onto your lawn or send it somewhere else. If the lawn next to your septic tank is looking more than usually healthy, this could mean that you’re having issues with your drainage system.
- Water Puddles — Be sure to keep an eye out for unusual puddles of water in your yard- the potential causes may vary depending on the type. For example, if your septic tank is too full it can cause wastewater to leak into other areas of your property.
