Septic Tank Repair & Leach Field Installation in San Mateo, CA

If you haven’t had any big problems with your septic tank or leach fields recently, you may not have given them much thought. However, you are responsible for ensuring they are in good functioning order.

Whenever a septic tank breaks, raw sewage runs out and can contaminate the surrounding region. This could have been caused by sewage backing up in the building’s plumbing or by sewage seeping up through the earth near the septic tank or drain field. 

Sewage seepage into the ground, surface, or ocean water may go unnoticed. To make matters worse, bacteria and other pathogens find wastewater to be a favorable habitat. These pollutants and pathogens can cause sickness in a wide variety of plant and animal species. They are also a danger since they can contaminate water sources that could have been used for human consumption, aquatic life, or agricultural purposes.

    How Do I Know If My San Mateo Septic Tank Is Failing?

    Knowing that the septic tank’s overflow goes to the leach field is vital for efficient waste management. The pipes, septic tank, and drain field make up your septic system (also called a leach field). It is the sole thing preventing your soil from becoming a health danger and is usually set up on a level area outside the house. 

    With regular upkeep, a leach field can serve its purpose for up to 25 years after it has been installed. Problems with your septic system are avoidable with frequent inspections by a licensed plumber, like those at Smart Plumbers & Rooters.

    Please get in touch with us ASAP if you’re experiencing any of the following problems:

    • Many different water and sewage sources are seeping into the house
    • Having water drain slowly in the bathroom
    • The plumbing system is making a lot of noise
    • Standing water or puddles close to the drain field or septic tank 
    • The area around the septic tank or drain field smells bad
    • Increased growth of grass in the area around the septic tank or drain field
    • Algal blooms have been found in nearby water sources
    • Nitrates and coliform bacteria have contaminated your water supply

    Call us anytime if you are struggling with any of the above issues. Whether it’s day, night, weekends, or holidays, our team will be available for you.

    Why Is It Important To Take Care Of My Septic Tank?

    The same level of consistent care should be given to a home’s septic system as should be given to any other component of the house. It is vital to provide the septic system with the appropriate care and maintenance in order to extend its usable life. If individuals do not execute the necessary maintenance on their septic systems on a regular basis, the potential for the system to fail might pose a risk to their health and be financially burdensome for them. A septic system has the potential to last for up to twenty years if it receives routine maintenance. 

    Because of this, a checkup and maintenance on the septic system should be carried out at the very least once every three years. You may avoid stressful situations in the long run by performing routine checks, which will also help you identify problems before they escalate into emergencies.
