Common Causes of a Broken Septic System

Septic systems are usually reliable. With routine pumping, they typically function well for many years. Like anything else, however, daily use takes a toll on the system over time. A septic system can stop working and cause the tank to overflow. Some common causes of a broken septic system include:

Tree root intrusion: Tree roots are strong and can push their way into the septic tank and sewer lines through tiny gaps, where they continue to grow until they eventually block the line. Root intrusion can cause some of the most severe damage that a sewer drainage system can face. 

Septic tank filling with groundwater: A tank can get full after a rain. If your tank overflows on your property and fills your house or yard with hazardous waste water, or you notice bubbling after a heavy rain, you could have a leak in a pipe or your septic tank. These leaks need to be located and repaired immediately. 
Tank too full: Your septic tank has a limited capacity, meaning it only holds a certain amount. If not pumped every 3-5 years, or if there are blockages or other problems, your system won’t work like it’s supposed to. It is important to have your septic tank pumped periodically to ensure waste levels stay low and everything functions properly. Schedule a pumping service with us and we will inspect your system to uncover the cause of the problem.
