Signs Your Field Lines Could Use Repair/Replacement

Being able to successfully diagnose an issue with your septic system’s drain field is no easy feat. Here are a few things for you to watch out for before giving us a call to repair or replace your drain field lines:

  • Unpleasant Odors – Let your nose do the talking. If you notice unpleasant odors outside of your building, particularly near your septic fields, something is probably wrong.
  • Slow Draining – Be on the lookout for sluggish toilets and drains or any unusual gurgling noises coming from your septic pipes indicating a larger issue may be afoot.
  • Wet or Discolored Patches of Grass – Regularly inspect the areas directly above your septic tank or drain field for wet spots or discolored patches of grass, which could indicate that your septic tank is overflowing or rising to the surface.
  • Plumbing Backups – Whether in the form of sludge, solids or a dark black liquid, a plumbing backup is never a good sign. You could have an outdated system design, over-capacity issues or an issue with tree roots or grease build-up restricting your septic system from doing its job. Regular septic pumping is necessary to avoid backups.

Septic Pumping Removes Sludge from Your Tank

Your septic tank will require routine septic pumping to remove built-up sludge and solids from it in order for it to go on functioning efficiently. Generally speaking, the thicker you allow your septic system’s sludge to become, the more difficult it becomes to remove the solids from your tank. Highly pressurized water will need to be applied in order to get it clean. On occasion, re-pumping may be recommended if the solids are too heavy to be broken down. When you call Chatta-Rooter Plumbing for septic pumping in the Chattanooga area, you can count on us to provide thorough service, checking for invading roots and other issues that may be affecting your septic tank.
