The Dangers Of A Failing Septic Tank

Beware The Dangers Of A Failing Into a Septic Tank

Every septic tank has a lifespan. With improper use and of course, lack of maintenance, you’ll find it coming to the end of its lifespan faster than you think. If you don’t keep up with the regular maintenance needed such as annual septic tank emptying, you could find your septic tank’s last days arriving much sooner than expected.

In either case, it’s important that you’re aware of the signs to give you ample time to replace your septic tank. Leaving it too much longer could pose a number of risks, some of which we’ve outlined below.

Signs Of A Failing Septic Tank System

Improper function: this is perhaps one of the most obvious signs that your septic tank is failing. You may notice anything from drains and toilets draining more slowly than usual. They may even be gurgling or worse still, bring water back up the pipes. You could also find water pooling in your garden above where the septic tank is located.

Contaminated Drinking Water: with an improper septic tank, you may find that the contaminated water leaks back into your ground water surrounding your home which could eventually contaminate your drinking water. Contaminated water leaking from your septic tank subsequently leaking into your ground water could prove extremely harmful. Nitrate would be a common nutrient leaking into the ground water, which could play havoc with your blood’s ability to carry oxygen.

Contaminated Surface Water: when a septic tank begins to leak, the surrounding surface water can become contaminated. Think nearby lakes, ponds and streams. The risk in this instance is not only to local wildlife but to local swimmers. Think ear and eye infections as well as more serious diseases such as hepatitis. With such drastic contamination as this, beaches can find themselves closed in order to prevent the spread of disease.

Smells Surrounding Septic Tank And Internal Drain Points: if your septic tank is leaking then you’ll no doubt find the area surrounding your septic tank, filling with the leaking fluid from the tank. If this continues, you’ll most certainly begin to smell the effluent that’s filling up the ground and rising to the surface.

Increase Your Septic Tank’s Lifespan

Increase your septic tank’s lifespan with the help of regular maintenance that will ensure your system is working to its full potential at all times. Regular maintenance will also help spot small problems that can be addressed early, more cost-effectively and allow you plenty of notice when the time comes to replace your system.
