Sandy Septic Tank Plumbers
When a home or business relies on a septic system, that tank will be responsible for the smooth flow and disposal of water. In other words, if the tank doesn’t work right, the plumbing system as a whole will flounder. Septic tanks can deteriorate or become overloaded, leading to a range of issues. It's crucial to be aware of the signs that indicate your septic tank may need to be replaced to prevent further damage and avoid potential health hazards.
A new septic tank can make your home a healthier place to live, it can eliminate a lot of inconveniences, and may ultimately increase the property value of the home. Whether you’re building new construction and need septic tank installation or are simply ready to move forward with replacing your old tank, we’re here to help.

Signs That Your Septic Tank Should Be Replaced
These six signs are red flags that your septic tank may be at the end of its lifespan and require a replacement:
- Flushing Problems: A full or malfunctioning septic tank can cause wastewater to back up into your plumbing system, resulting in poor flushing performance. This can lead to sewage backups and unsanitary conditions within your home or business space.
- Strange Sounds: Gurgling or bubbling sounds occur when air gets trapped in the pipes due to blockages or a full septic tank. If you hear these sounds frequently, it's an indication that the tank is not functioning properly.
- The Yard Smells: A strong and persistent foul odor emanating from your yard is a clear sign that your septic tank may need attention. The smell can be caused by a leaking or overflowing tank, indicating a problem with the drainage and treatment of wastewater.
- Green Grass: Having a lush green lawn is desirable. But if you notice an unusually vibrant patch of grass over your septic tank area, it could be a sign of leakage. When a septic tank fails, the excess wastewater can escape and fertilize the surrounding soil, leading to accelerated grass growth.
- Slow Drains: A full or failing septic tank can cause wastewater to accumulate, leading to slow drainage in sinks, showers, and bathtubs.
- Well Water Contamination: Septic tanks are designed to treat wastewater before it reaches the ground, but when they malfunction, untreated sewage can seep into the surrounding soil and potentially reach groundwater sources. If you notice changes in the smell, taste, or color of your well water, it's necessary to find out if a failing septic is the reason.
