Signs You Need an Emergency Septic Tank Service

If you are a commercial or residential property owner, there’s nothing more frustrating than septic system failure. It usually starts as a slow drain or foul smell and grows until it results in sewage backup. Luckily, there are signs you can look out for knowing when you need professional help. Septic Connection is a reputable septic company with a team of experienced contractors ready to help you maintain an efficient and functioning waste management system. We leverage state-of-the-art equipment to enhance the quality of septic tank pumping and other maintenance services. If you suspect a problem with your system, here are signs showing the need for emergency septic service.


The most common signs of septic damage are clogs, which compromise your tubs, sinks, and showers, resulting in slow drains. When water isn’t draining fast enough, we must clear an obstruction before sewage backs up in your indoor spaces. We recommend septic tank pumping and cleaning to clear blockages and performance concerns.

Damaged Pipes or Sewer Lines

Another crucial sign you need emergency septic service for your sewer lines. There are many causes of damaged or crushed sewer lines, from vehicles to plant roots. We are a professional septic company equipped to detect even the slightest crack in your pipes, addressing the problem before it leads to a pipe burst. Schedule a consultation to determine if your septic system needs maintenance.

Your System Needs Pumping

If your septic tank hasn’t been pumped for over two years, we recommend scheduling an appointment with a trusted septic tank pumping service. Our team of highly trained technicians can assess and design a pumping program that’s suited for your system. Failing to provide the care your septic system needs leads to scum build-up, which prevents wastewater from draining as expected.

Drainfield Issues

The Drainfield is vital to your waste management system and helps wastewater integrate with groundwater. However, if you detect stagnant water around the drain field, you are due for a maintenance inspection, and we can help you assess, detect, and diagnose the problem. While a lush lawn is the goal of every property owner, if it is only around the drain field, you need to hire a professional septic company for maintenance.

You Flushed the Wrong Item

It is always crucial to remember that sink drains and toilets are not trash receptacles. When you flush baby wipes, diapers, sanitary napkins, and other items labeled "septic friendly," you risk clogging your septic system. Bacteria can ’t break most of these items down, resulting in damage and system failure. Always watch what goes down the drain and the toilet for a healthy and functional system.

Too Much Water Flow

A lot of water flowing down the drain is not always good, and you might require immediate septic tank pumping and repairs. Excess water doesn’t drain properly and can lead to a leak in the septic tank or backup into your drain field. If you encounter such issues, stop running water and reach out to a trusted septic service for maintenance.
