Septic System Repairs
Does Your System Need a Repair?
Below could be a list of indications that your system needs repairs :

1. Backups – Problems with a septic system may surface as a backup in the drains and toilets. This generally looks like a black or dark liquid that collects at the bottom of the toilet or in the kitchen or bathroom sinks or tubs. This could be the result of a blockage in the pipe that connects your house to the septic tank, it could be a blockage in your tank or it could even be a septic field bed malfunction. Our knowledgeable staff can help you diagnose the cause of your backup.

2. Pump Alarms – Whenever your high float alarm is activated you can't ignore it, if you do you are putting your self at-risk of having a sewage backup. Your problem may be as small as a faulty pump, pump float, or may be as serious as a field malfunction.

3. Slow Drain – When even cleaning products don’t help to clear slow drains in the sinks and toilets, this could be a symptom of a problem with the septic system. There may be the beginning of a sewage backup into the plumbing of the house, causing the slow drainage of water.

4. Surface Water – Septic systems that are experiencing problems sometimes have water on the ground above them. This can resemble a swampy area with appx an inch of water on it. Excessive surface water can put a strain on your septic system and cause your system to fail. Solving these problems can be as simple as installing a French drain or a ditch.

5. Green Grass – A lush, green lawn is often sought after, except when it is in only one spot: over the absorption field of a septic system. A problematic septic system might expose itself through liquid bubbling up through the soil, thus helping the grass to stay extra green. A septic system that is healthy generally has the liquid heading downward.

6. Bacteria in Drinking Water – Septic system problems may expose themselves in the drinking water from a well. A bad odor in well water could be a sign that the liquid from the septic system is in the well water, from leakage either below or above the surface. This can be confirmed by water tests.

Septic Tank Effluent Filter Systems


An effluent filter provides critical protection to your field bed by keeping it free and clear of solids. By keeping the solids in the septic tank, your treatment or disposal system will not be harmed.
We are able to retrofit your existing septic tank with a sludge and scum filter that will suit the unique needs of your home system.
Solids entering the septic field significantly reduce the life of the field, resulting in premature failure of the entire system so an effluent filter makes a lot of sense.
This is a effluent filter, effective in reducing particle size to 1/16 of and inch!
