The most common problem we have from the older style septic systems are that they smell and that they are awkwardly placed on the property, often very close to the house. We are now finding that the older septic tanks and septic trench systems are failing and in need of attention. When these systems fail, most households will generally have no notice other than the following:
- Trenches may cease working and untreated effluent will rise to the surface
- Toilets may back up meaning the system is no longer able to process effluent
- Odours may be detected from the system
We can arrange a time to inspect the system for no cost at all and give you options on whether to repair, replace or upgrade your existing system.
