When To Replace Your Septic Tank vs. Repairing It

When your septic tank starts to malfunction, it can be difficult to know when to repair it and when it needs to be replaced.

If you notice odors or experience drainage issues, these problems can typically be repaired by a professional. This may involve fixing a pipe or replacing a part, or even needing pumping services.

If your system is completely failing, it can be time to replace the entire unit.

To avoid a total replacement – or unexpectedly learning you need to install a new unit, it’s important to schedule regular maintenance with a professional. We offer residential and commercial services.
