With regular maintenance and checks, a septic tank can serve you well for decades. However, it is an easily neglected and unseen part of a homeowner’s plumbing system. If left unchecked for too long, it could fall into disrepair and cause several problems. Plumbing Authority Inc. provides septic services for New Tecumseth residences and commercial properties; call us for professional assistance.

Don’t take septic issues for granted, seek immediate assistance from the moment you suspect any problems with your system. Avoid costly repairs and replacement of the system. Identify the signs of septic tank problems.

Call Plumbing Authority when you experience these common septic tank problems:

  • Clogs and Blockages -Troubles in your septic system can be traced back to the last time you had your septic tank pumped out. Without timed maintenance, septic tanks eventually fill with solid waste. A septic tank that’s full can cause slow drainage in sinks and tubs, or sewage backups in your toilet.

    Keep these issues at bay. Have your septic tank inspected by a licensed plumbing company, and remove the “sludge” every three years or so. If your home or property doesn’t have a garbage disposal (garburator), you may need the system cleaned every year.

    The buildup of solids creates an imbalance in the system. Regular cleaning and pumping is necessary to prevent the need for costly septic repairs. New Tecumseth clients can rely on us in situations like this. Contact us when you need an emergency septic repair, we will answer your call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • Drainfield Failure -A damaged drainfield is another cause for sewage backup into your home. A telltale sign of this problem is the presence of wet areas near or above your tank or drainfield. You need a septic drainfield repair to keep your septic system in proper working order.
  • Tank and Line Leaks - If you notice some puddles or sewage somewhere on your lawn, chances are your septic tank has a leak or your lines are receiving excessive wastewater that it’s already pouring out into your yard. Raw sewage is dangerous to the environment and can cause health hazards. A septic tank inspection and repair in New Tecumseth can help you contain the problem before it gets worse.
  • Tree Roots - To look for moisture, tree roots tend to grow around or drill through any source of moisture that’s in their way. The growth of tree roots can affect your septic system and keep it from working efficiently. Contact us for septic tank services to prevent the occurrence of messy leaks.
Septic system failure could cause sewage to emerge above ground around the septic tank or back up into the drains of your home or office. If left unchecked, a faulty septic tank may release untreated sewage into the ground and water, polluting the environment and contaminating important resources. Additionally, untreated sewage contains a plethora of pathogens and hazardous substances that are extremely harmful to animals and humans alike. For plumbing emergencies such as these, Plumbing Authority Inc. is available 24/7.
