Septic Tank Problem

The most common symptoms of a problem are either the flow from the house is slowed or septic effluent begins to surface over the drainfield.

Septic systems are often cited as sources of surface and groundwater pollution and these problems are often attributed to failing systems.

Neglect contributes to premature failure and shorter life of septic systems.
