Most professional septic tank companies have emergency services for a reason. Although there are some things that can wait until Monday morning, some septic issues cannot wait until regular business hours. Here is why.
When a septic backup happens, you are in danger of raw sewage getting into your home or on your property. This can be extremely expensive to clean up, and if not done correctly, can be toxic to you and your family. If you have a septic backup, call your septic company’s emergency line right away. Do not wait until the morning.
If your septic tank is leaking, this is definitely a septic emergency. A leaking tank can seep wastewater into the surrounding ground, potentially contaminating the local water supply. It also can be damaging to plant and animal life. If you notice pooling water on or around your property, this could be a sign of a leaking tank. A foul rotten egg smell in or around your house is also a sign of a leaking tank. In the event of a septic leak, call your septic company immediately. If you are not sure where the leak is coming from, they will use specialized equipment to find it.
A broken pipe connected to or from your septic tank could be an emergency. When your pipes are not functioning properly, that means your tank is not functioning properly either. If wastewater is not able to enter or leave your tank, you could end up with an overflowing tank or a sewage backup. If you suspect you have a broken or damaged pipe, do not wait until regular business hours. Call your septic company right away.
