Don’t panic! Your septic tank can flood for a myriad of reasons which could stem from a bad drain field, clogged outlet pipe, inadequate outlet baffles, dirty filters, nonfunctioning septic pumps and a host of other problems. Relax and immediately reduce your water usage. In some instances that are related to septic systems that have pumps, I advise my clients to eliminate all water use for 4-8 hours because sometimes pump systems may dose large quantities of water into the drain field; prompting a backup. Whatever the reason is you’re septic tank floods, rest assured that Septic Response will be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
