Septic Tank Repair


Septic Systems require routine maintenance in order to avoid septic repair and/or a new septic installation. Because tanks, pipes, and drain fields are buried beneath the ground, it can be difficult to determine if your septic troubles are an easy fix or a symptom of a much larger problem. Either way, it is important to call a professional at the first sign of problems so a thorough septic inspection can be conducted. If you are experiencing any of the issues listed below, give us a call. We are one of the leading septic repair and septic installation companies in Chattanooga and would be happy to find your family or business an affordable solution.

Signs You Need Tank Repair


The Yard Has Flooded with Wastewater

When septic drain fields become overly saturated, the result is a flooded lawn. There are many reasons why this occurs – and they aren’t all related to a problem with the tank itself. Sometimes the drain field is located in a bad position, where water pools during times of severe rain. If water is getting into your septic tank, backups can occur not only in the yard but inside the house as well. However, sometimes a yard full of wastewater is evidence of damage to pipes. Unfortunately, septic tank pumping may not solve a problem like this, because after pumping the water out, it will simply fill back up again. A thorough inspection should be conducted to determine if a repair can fix the issue. If you live in the Chattanooga area, our septic specialists are experts in diagnosing and fixing problems like this.

Bad Smells

Sewage smells leaking into the home can be caused by plumbing issues rather than septic tank problems. If your family is experiencing this problem, be sure to contact a professional who understands the differences. However, if the smells are also noticeable in your yard, chances are your tank is backing up and it may be a sign of septic failure.

Clogged Toilets and Sinks

Every family experiences occasional clogged toilets and drains. Most of the time these issues can be resolved by snaking the drain to remove the object that is blocking the pipe. However, if your family is having frequent problems with pipes backing up, it could be a red flag that your septic system has a major problem. Over time, mineral deposits, debris, and rust can seal the openings of the drainage pipes, making the wastewater from your home collect in the septic tank rather than seeping into the drain field area.

These are all major warning signs that your septic problems will need more than septic tank pumping or enzyme treatments. You may be in need of a septic tank repair. It’s important to schedule a septic inspection with a company you can trust. Septic repairs in Chattanooga can be very costly, but they don’t have to be.

Make Sure You Get a Septic Cleaning

Simply placing a hose into your septic tank to flush out the effluent isn’t enough. Sometimes, unreliable service providers will do a quick pump, but not remove the sludge layer.

We provide a thorough septic cleaning service to make sure that your tank is emptied of residue so your septic system works as good as new.
