If you own a home with a septic system in Sherman, TX and have concerns about its age and condition, the team at Dusty Underwood Plumbing and Septic would be more than happy to help. The answers to these questions can help you determine if your septic system has become outdated.
Is the System More than 20 Years Old?
A system’s age is the first and most obvious clue to whether it has become outdated. Modern septic technology has come a long way in the past several decades. Older systems are also less efficient than newer systems due to wear and tear of critical components and the need for more frequent septic repair work. If you’re not sure whether it has been more than 20 years after your septic installation, our team can carry out an inspection to confirm.
Has Your Home Been Renovated?
A septic system is designed to process a specific amount of wastewater that’s usually based on the number of occupants in the home. If your household has grown over the years to the point where additional bedrooms and bathrooms were constructed, your system may have the sufficient capacity to deal with the increased wastewater flow rate. In which case, you’ll be needing a new septic installation.
Are You Experiencing Recurring Septic System Problems?
Frequent system backups and constant moisture over the tank or disposal field are signs that your septic system is no longer functioning properly. We offer septic services that can diagnose the problem and determine if it’s caused by an outdated system or some other issue like improper soil.
How to Proceed
In most cases, it’s not necessary to replace an older septic system until it fails completely. Our team will be glad to address your concerns about septic replacement by performing a complete inspection and evaluation of your system’s condition and functionality.
