Septic Tank Replacement, Troubleshooting and Advice

When septic tanks are working efficiently, they do not require much thought or effort – annual checks and maintenance is required and the occasional improvement may be necessary, but overall a septic system is hassle-free and a lot less worrisome than people often believe. However, when a septic tank suffers from an advanced failure or damage, a replacement will be necessary and this can be troublesome or cause issues.

Common Septic Tank Issues

The most common issues resulting in a necessary septic tank replacement are;

  • Residents flushing items which should be disposed of in other ways, including kitchen roll, food items and even coffee grounds – causing blockages.
  • Antibacterial cleaners causing septic tank bacteria to cease breaking down the solid waste within.
  • Tree roots growing into the system and causing blockages, damage and leaks. Septic tanks should always be installed at least 30 metres from nearby trees.

Keeping Septic Tanks running Smoothly

Septic tanks are part of a septic system. This system treats your household sewage when you aren't connected to a larger sewage system. They require a septic drain field to function properly. You must also keep the septic tank from getting blocked or overfilled.

Regular maintenance checks and routine improvements will identify and prevent potential issues before they worsen, an early fix will eradicate the need for a full septic tank replacement in the long run.

When Septic Tank Replacement is Necessary

The most common sign that a septic tank is damaged beyond repair and that a septic tank replacement is necessary is a change in the drain field. Problems within the septic tank will often cause leaks and this will result in a damp, wet or squishy field with a noticeably bad odour.

Once problems have been noticed, it is a priority to ensure that septic tanks are replaced or repaired as soon as possible, as delays can endanger the health and wellbeing of the property’s residents and may even spread far enough to cause structural damage to the property itself.
