Septic Tank Repair

If you’re starting to have some problems with the septic tank at your property (click here to read our article on the ten most common septic tank problems), you might be wondering whether you’re in need of a septic tank repair.

It is possible that some problems with your septic tank can be resolved quickly and easily – for example, by emptying the tank if it is overflowing. This might sound obvious, but your septic tank could be overflowing for innocent reasons before it is due to be emptied. For example, recent high levels of rainfall, or the fantastic party you recently held at your house which put a lot more waste water into the tank than it would be used to!

Firstly, check out our guide on what to do if your septic tank is overflowing, hopefully the problem can be sorted out easily.  But if emptying the tank doesn’t get things moving again, you’ll need to find out what’s going on underground.

Finding out what the problem is with your septic tank

When you get your septic tank emptied, ask the tanker driver to let you know if they spot any problems. Sometimes a problem can be obvious, and they can give you an idea of what’s going on.
