If it seems like your septic tank might be damaged, what should you do? Follow these steps:

  1. Determine if there has been a leak

You might have septic tank damage if you notice a foul odor in the area. It will be strongest in areas near your septic tank or your drain field. You should also look for lush vegetation in these areas as well, especially if there hasn’t been any there before. Standing water and overly soggy ground are other signs of a damaged septic tank.

Inside your home, you might find that sinks and toilets are backing up or are slow to drain. There may be gurgling sounds in your plumbing system. This may not always be a sign of damage, however. You may just need to pump out your septic tank, an important part of septic tank maintenance. Before you get the septic tank pumped, make sure you have the service video the sewer line to check for damage.
