Your septic tank contains everything you flush down the drain, including toilet water, human waste, and cleaning products. These materials mix together in the tank, along with microorganisms living in the waste. This combination can prove dangerous when it leaks, especially if it enters nearby water sources. If a septic leak happens on your property, immediately contact Plumbing Authority Inc. for septic repair in Mono.
Some signs of septic leaks to watch out for include:
- Foul odours – Foul odours inside the house can indicate septic backup, while outside the smells can point toward septic leaks or drainage issues.
- Soggy yard – Water from a septic leak will accumulate in your yard. Nearby soil sags, creating a depression where water from precipitation and sprinklers can collect.
- Backed up toilets – Sewage backup occurs when contaminated water flows back into your toilet, bathtub, or sink. This is a serious problem; the waste water may contain hazardous germs.
- Lush grass patches – Leaking sewage may cause grass in the surrounding area to become overly “fertilized,” creating a patch of grass that looks more green and lush than anywhere else.
Septic repair for Mono residents should always be performed by a professional; DIY work can cause further damage to your septic system and compound the problem. Waste in the septic tank also contains germs, increasing risk of infection. The professional plumbers at Plumbing Authority Inc. have the training, tools, and experience to deal with the problem safely and efficiently.
Septic backup can be dangerous; backed up water may leach into your water supply, potentially contaminating potable water. Our septic system repairs may include installing back-water valves to prevent future backflow. We also provide accurate pipe-locating to identify compromised pipes to start work decisively. To find leaks, we offer CCTV (closed circuit television cameras) inspection to find out exactly where the leaks are, and hopefully solve the problem before any contamination occurs.
Leaks also pose a threat to nearby groundwater sources. Contaminated water can affect your children, pets, and your neighbours. Avoid potential health problems by calling for immediate septic tank repair.
