What Can Go Wrong?

If you notice any of the following signs or if you suspect your sewage treatment system may be having problems, contact our office at (320) 231-6229 or a Qualified Septic Professional.

  • Odors, surfacing sewage, wet spots, or lush vegetation growth in the drainfield area
  • Plumbing or septic tank backups (often a black liquid with a disagreeable odor)
  • Slow draining fixtures
  • Gurgling sounds in the plumbing system
  • If you have a well and tests show the presence of coliform (bacteria) or nitrates, your drainfield may be failing
  • Lush green grass over the drainfield, even during dry weather
