You can ALWAYS call Hemley’s Septic Service @ 253-851-3432 before or after checking and we’ll get a technician out to your site ASAP! In the meantime, here are some things to check:
Unpleasant Odors – One of the most obvious signs that your septic tank is not functioning properly is the presence of unpleasant odors near the drainfield and plumbing appliances.
Slow Drains – Water and sewage from drains, sinks, and toilets may also be draining slowly, a sign that your septic tank isn’t working as it should.
Gurgling Sounds – You may also hear gurgling noises coming from your pipes or drains, which could indicate that water is backing up inside.
Unexplained Green Grass – If you notice an area of green grass growing in your yard where it hasn’t been before, this could be a sign that too much water is coming from your septic tank and saturating the area.
Poorly Treated Wastewater – If your septic tank isn’t functioning as it should, it won’t be able to treat the wastewater properly, leading to pathogens not being sufficiently removed or broken down.
Contact Local Health Department – If you suspect there’s an issue with your septic tank, contact your local health department or regulatory agency to investigate further.
Consider Professional Assistance – In all cases, you should seek professional assistance if you’re struggling to diagnose or fix the issue with your septic tank yourself.
