Frequently Asked Questions

How do I learn about my property's septic system?

A simple consultation with your licensed septic contractor to locate and size your system is a great way to start the process.

How do I know if my system is in good working order?

To determine if your septic system is in good condition, viewing inside of the tanks to confirm adequate water levels is the easiest method.

What happens when a septic system fails? How can I tell?

The most common signs of septic system failure are wet spots in the Drainfield area, slow drainage or plumbing backing up inside if home. If you are experiencing any of these issues, give us a call for septic repair or septic pump replacement.

The most common cause of septic failure is hydraulic overload. If your system is designed to take 200 gallons of water per day and you are using 250 gallons per day the system will eventually fail. Please see our guide to having a healthy Septic system below!

Can my septic system contaminate my well and nearby streams and water bodies?

Yes, an apparent problem of a failing septic system is when you see run off directly into ponds or streams nearby. Your system could have been installed low enough to be in the water table which will contaminate water supplies.
