Many homeowners don’t think about their septic system unless something goes wrong. While the septic system is easy to forget about when it’s working properly, it can become clear very quickly when there is a problem. A faulty septic system can cause flooding around your yard, generally over a drain field. A clogged or broken septic system can also cause flooding in your home when water can no longer filter through or into the tank or drain field. Before flooding occurs, homeowners will generally notice that their drains stop working, that toilets won’t flush, washing machines and dishwashers won’t drain, or that murky water backs up into drains or toilets. Any of these symptoms can be a sign of a serious problem with your septic system and it should be dealt with immediately. If you see this happening, call Carolina Septic Pro immediately. An inspector will come to your home to assess the tank, inlets, outlets, baffles, drain field and other components, and find where the problem is. Whether the problem can be easily fixed with a minor repair or more extensive attention is required, Carolina Septic Pro will work quickly to get your septic system up and running again fast. The experts will also find a solution that is most affordable and long-lasting, so you don’t have to break your budget or sacrifice quality.

Septic tanks and septic systems are designed to work in the background without constant attention, but they do require preventative maintenance to stay working correctly. The best service that you can arrange for your septic system is regular septic tank pumping. Septic systems are designed to filter wastewater from your home and clean it so it can reenter the groundwater, but solids will accumulate in the tank over time. Black water, which includes wastewater from the toilet, and gray water, which includes wastewater from the sink, shower, tub, laundry and dishwasher, may be filtered in separate tanks or filtered in one tank. Regardless of the design of your septic system, regular septic pumping will eliminate the build-up of grease and grim along the bottom of the tank. This will allow water to move through the tank safely and enter the drain field, where it is filtered and then soaks back into the ground. The timetable for reliable septic tank pumping varies depending on the size of the tank, the number of occupants in the home and other factors affecting your plumbing and septic systems.

If there are damages to your septic tank, a septic tank inspection will show where the problem is so it can be fixed. Carolina Septic Pro provides septic tank inspections in Iredell County for all types of septic systems. There are a variety of factors which can cause damage to your septic system, and multiple vital components which may become damaged. The tank could become damaged by tree roots growing into the tank, a difference in water pressure inside and outside the tank during rains or droughts can cause the tank to shift and cause attached components to become unsteady, or erosion can simply weaken the surface of the tank or components. The tank can also become weakened by the use of bleach or drain cleaners, which are not recommended for septic systems. One of the most common problems besides a full septic tank are solids becoming lodged in pipes, baffles or in drain fields. This is generally caused by solids which are not designed to be filtered in the tank, such as heavy paper products, plastics or food waste.  An inspection will show where these problems exist and the inspector can recommend quick and cost-efficient solutions.
