|Do you want to be sure that all members of your family are relatively healthy? In this world filled with processed foods and unhealthy practices, this seems to be a tall order. But there’s an effective way you can keep your family healthy all the time.
That is to be armed with the basic knowledge about the four most common septic tank problems in your home. The septic tank is the perfect breeding ground for all types of pathogens and knowledge about its problems will enable you to prevent them from adversely affecting your family.
Here are the 4 most common problems that could develop in your septic tank:
1. Soakaway problem
You will know if you have a soakaway septic tank problem when:
2. Strange sounds
Noise coming from the sink such as gurgling sounds indicate there is a problem in the system. It could mean a blocked or clogged drain field, or it could be the result of an intermittent increase in the water volume passing through the pipes.
3. Slow draining
A septic tank that takes too long to drain indicates a problem in the system. This can be caused by solid waste entering the tank’s drain field. When solid waste travels fast and does not have sufficient time to break down, it will clog the pipes and compromise the draining capability of the system.
4. Leaking pipes
Septic tank leaks are often unnoticed until the problem becomes too big. But you can observe its symptoms – green grass near the pipes which is greener than the surrounding grass and which grows faster. It could mean they are being ‘fertilized’ by the substance leaking from the pipe.
