Prevent Serious Septic Failure by Watching for Problems Inside and Outside Your Home

Many homeowners may confuse a problem with their drain field as septic system failure. However, the two can develop different issues and must be resolved as quickly as possible by a professional. Whether the drain field was poorly constructed or failed due to age, if you see wastewater in your lawn, call for help right away.

Water Backup

A sure sign of a problem is water and waste backing up into your bathtub, sinks, and other drains. This can mean there is a blockage or problem with your leach field. This is not the time for DIY repair; call your local septic experts at KRK Enterprises for repair!

Foul Odors

A telltale sign of a sewer issue is the foul, rotten egg smell. If you notice this odor coming from your drains, or even outside your home (particularly after a heavy rain), have your system inspected as soon as possible. You might have a leak or issue with your drainfield.

Slow Drainage

Sinks, tubs, and toilets that are slow to drain often indicate a clog or issue somewhere in your drain line, especially if you experience this problem throughout the building. Contact a plumber right away to resolve the problem before it gets worse!
