What are the signs that your septic system is failing?
There are a few warning signs that a septic system is failing. The most obvious one is a foul smell coming out of your toilets. This tells you that either your septic system is full or clogged. Some other red flags are Gurgling sounds from your pipes, slow drawing from your sinks or toilets, and water backing up.
One neglected warning sign is having puddles of water in your yard where your septic drainage system is. This is a sign that there is a problem with your septic tank. The water surfacing is foul-smelling; thus, it needs to be solved right away as it might pose a health hazard to you and your neighbours.
