Really green grass over drainfield
If the grass over your drainfield is looking a lot better than the rest of the lawn, it could be getting a little extra “fertilizer” in the form of excessive waste liquid backing up in your system.
Pooling water over and near the drainfield is a serious indication that, at the very least, you need your septic system pumped and inspected immediately. You will more than likely also notice a distinct sewage odor.
Excessive nitrates in well water
Well water should be tested at least once a year. If higher than normal nitrate levels are detected, it can be an indication waste water is overflowing your septic system and into your drinking water… major yuck.
If you aren’t on a regular maintenance schedule and ignore all the previous signs, having raw sewage backup into your home could become a reality. Kinda disgusting, but true.
Quick Tip: Avoid putting household hazardous wastes, plastics or anything anti-bacterial in sinks or toilet. This keeps the natural bio-processes healthy and functioning properly.
