Clogs happen, usually at the most inconvenient times. Like right before a big party, an important meeting or when you have guests staying at your home. Thankfully septic system companies are fully equipped and prepared to deal with this number one septic system repair. Clogs can happen for many different reasons such as anything other than waste and toilet paper flushed down your system, an overflowing tank, or a buildup in a pipe. To ensure clogs don’t happen, have your septic tank pumped regularly, have it inspected yearly, and be sure everyone in your household, including guests, aren’t flushing non-septic safe materials.

Tree Roots

It’s extremely common for tree roots to intrude into the pipes and inner workings of septic systems. This can happen over time when you’re not even aware of it, causing costly repairs that can damage your yard and landscaping. If you suspect that tree roots are causing problems to your septic system, call Affordable Pumping Services right away. The sooner you address the problem, the better.

Leaking Tank

A septic tank leak is not only inconvenient, but it can also be potentially dangerous to your home, family and surrounding environment and wildlife. Professional septic system companies are trained and equipped to deal with these sensitive leaks quickly and efficiently. Sometimes a leaking septic tank will not leave any signs inside your home, but there are other things to watch out for.
