If you have a septic tank on your property, you need to make sure that you are always well aware of the various signs that may indicate a problem with it. This way, you will have a chance to have the problem corrected before it gets out of control. To help you with this, you might want to take a few moments to read over the following signs of potential problems.
Your House Smells Like Rotten Eggs
If you have ever smelled rotten eggs, then you know just how bad it can be. The thing is though, the sudden smell of rotten eggs in your house, specifically coming from the drains in your home, it not sign of bad food. It is a sign that there is methane gas making its way into the building, which is a result of raw sewage coming back up the drain lines. Should you find that you are smelling this, you will want to quickly call a septic tank repair technician, as you could have sewage backed up into your home very soon.
The Drains Are Making Noises
Are you hearing some gurgling noises when you try to allow water to go down the drain? If so, you will want to check to see if this is a noise that is coming from all of your drains or just one of them. This will allow you to determine whether the problem, which is most likely a clog or break in the line, is in the main sewage drain line, or if it is in one particular drain line that leads to an individual sink. Calling in your professional septic tank repair technician will ensure that the clog or broken line is fixed before you find yourself with such a bad situation that the water starts to come back up the drain instead of flowing down the line into your septic tank.
The Yard Is Suddenly Soggy
If you have a continually wet spot in your yard, that just so happens to be right above and around your underground septic tank, then you may have a serious septic leak. It could be a broken line. It could be that the tank has overflowed because it was not drained as soon as it should have been. Then again, if the septic tank is really old, it could have a cracked or collapsed wall that is allowing all of the septic water to saturate the soil in your yard.
Now, with those three signs in mind, be sure you are calling in a professional septic repair technician before the problem gets out of control.
When hosting an outdoor party, you have two options to provide your guests with restroom facilities - allow them to go in and out of your home or rent a portable toilet for the party. I couldn't imagine having my guests use one of the dirty porta-potties that I suffered through using in many places in the past, so I opted to allow everyone to use the bathroom in my home. After spending a small fortune having my carpets cleaned after one party, I decided to look into my options. This blog is all about the great options of portable toilets that you have for your events.
