A septic system that doesn't work properly can not only cause problems with plumbing fixtures, but also lead to a household being exposed to the toxins in sewage. Once there is a backed up or broken line, sewage can quickly flood a house by coming up through toilets and possibly the drains or other fixtures. Once of the most common scenarios for such an incident to take place is for a septic tank to become overfilled with waste materials. Unlike a municipal sewer system in which waste from a house is automatically handled by the city, pumping is necessary, and it is the responsibility of a homeowner when there is a septic tank on his or her property. Professional contractors can assist with all of your needs when it comes to problems caused by a septic tank.
Emergency Septic Tank Pumping
When a septic tank causes problems in the middle of the night due to being filled with waste, this problem will need to be resolved the next day. There are contractors who work on emergency basis and can possibly pump your septic tank in a speedy manner. Even if immediate help isn't possible, emergency sewer pumping contractors can get the job done in a speedy manner, such as the next day, depending on their business hours. If you are unsure in regard to how often your tank should be pumped, ask the contractor. He or she will make a suggestion based on the size of the your household and capacity that the tank has in regard to storing waste.
Drain Field Line Repairs & Cleaning
In some cases, cleaning the drain filed lines is included when a septic tank is pumped. The lines play a major role in the overall operation of your sewage system, as they make it possible for liquid waste to be properly moved from the septic tank into the ground. Cleaning out the lines is necessary for removing waste particles, dirt, and debris that are trapped in the lines. In some cases, it is necessary for the lines to be repaired or replaced as well.
New Septic Tank Installation
Depending on the pumping contractor that you hire, it is possible to get your septic tank replaced on an emergency basis. If the tank is badly damaged, fast replacement can prevent your household from having to wait long before the toilets can be used. If you are unsure if your tank is in need of being pumped, replaced, or repaired, contact a pumping contractor as soon as possible to get to the bottom of the problem.
