We are thankful for last month’s rain, but it has caused a lot of damage to homes and septic systems. A well-functioning septic system should not be affected by rain. However, many older septic systems don’t function at their highest capacities when the ground is saturated with water. If you find yourself in this situation, here are a few things you can do to limp your system along until the ground dries up. It’s also important to note that not all systems will recover after failure due to rain.
While the steps above may help reduce any problems, there is no guarantee. Hopefully your septic system has “weathered the storm.” If you are experiencing problems, we’re happy to help service your system, complete a new system installation, or answer any questions you may have.
