Does My Water or Sewer Line Need to Be Replaced/Repaired?

Signs that your sewage line may need to be replaced include:

• Gurgling from toilets & drains
• Low water levels
• Slow draining tubs or toilets
• Noticeable sewage backup in toilets or bathtubs
• Soggy or raised patches in yard
• Unusually fast growing grass or vegetation — fast growing or vibrant
• Sewage smell around your property

Will Septic Tanks Freeze?

Various components of your septic tank can freeze, with the most vulnerable parts being the pipes traveling from your home to the tank. Some other components that are susceptible to freezing include your tank, the drain field and the pipes leading into it. The more often your septic system is used, the less likely you are to encounter freezing issues.

Is My Sewer System Backed up?

When you have a sewer system backup, you’ll typically know it fairly quickly. You’ll probably see water backing up from the toilet, but you might also notice it coming up from your shower. A home sewer backup can even affect your bathroom sink drain.

A home sewer backup can also result in strong odors coming from your drains or areas outside the home. Gurgling sounds from the toilet or drains are also common signs, as are pools of water near the floor drain of your residential basement.

A septic drain field can be repaired, but those repairs can be costly and inconvenient. The best way to minimize the disruption to your home is to catch minor problems before they become serious. Knowing the signs of a failing drain field can mean the difference between a small repair and a major overhaul of your septic system.

Contact GA HUNT (contact button) if you notice any of the following:

• Backed up drains or sewage pipes anywhere in your plumbing system, especially when accompanied by a foul-smelling, dark colored liquid
• Strong smells, standing water or sewage in your lawn above the drainfield area
• Patches of discolored grass above the drainfield area
• Frequent need to pump your septic tank/system (more than once every three years)

Drain field problems can be more accurately diagnosed with a septic inspection. Any of the following signs may indicate that a septic problem is specific to the drainage field and not caused by any other issue:

• Floating scum or liquid rising above the baffles of the septic tank
• Liquid effluent rising above the distribution box outlet
• Discharge of any effluent to the surface of the septic system
