Simply put, a septic tank is an underwater sedimentation tank used for wastewater treatment, decomposition, and drainage. This underground watertight container must be cleaned, or pumped, at least once a year. If not, toxic substances will accumulate and kill the good bacteria that break down waste. When sludge and solid waste build up in the septic tank and drain field lines, your septic system will stop working properly.

Signs of Septic System Failure
Septic system failure results in sewage released and transported to all the wrong places. Sewage may come to the surface of the ground around the tank, or it could or back up in the pipes of the structure. Other signs of septic system trouble include:
- Sewage from drains, toilets, and sinks back up into the home
- Slow draining water
- Gurgling sounds from your pipes
- Standing water near the septic tank
- Foul odours near the septic tank
If you see any of these signs, call us, and we will quickly send a technician to your home for a free home safety inspection.
Septic Tank Repairs and Replacement
Some septic system issues can be resolved quickly and easily. If there’s standing water or a foul odour between the septic tank and the drain field, the problem may be a broken pipe. Broken septic pipes can lead to bigger problems, so it is essential to have an expert take a look. Sometimes grease and solid waste enter the drain field and clog the soil, letting contaminated water and waste rise to the surface. Sometimes the soil is so full of debris that the only alternative is to dig a new drain field.
Call One Stop Trade Services for a thorough assessment of your septic system. We will inspect your septic system and septic pipes and determine whether a repair or a replacement is in order.
