If you own a septic system, you’re likely aware of the many benefits they offer. From their relatively low maintenance, environmental benefits and long life expectancy, they have become a cost-effective option for many homeowners. These systems are not without their flaws though, and oftentimes issues can creep up on you. If you own a septic system, it is important to know the key indicators that your system is having issues.
One of the more visibly obvious signs of your septic system facing issues is when it becomes backed up. A backed up, failing or full septic system results in the unfortunate event of sewer water backing up into your toilets, sinks and other appliances. If you find yourself dealing with this issue, we recommend calling a licensed plumber as soon as possible.
Another unpleasant result of a failed septic system is foul odors coming from your plumbing appliances or near your drain field. These smells are more than just uncomfortable to deal with, they can also be dangerous, as well as signs of blocked vents, a full tank or a broken pump.
Unusual Colored Grass
If you notice bright green, spongy grass on or around where your septic tank lies, it is a sign that your septic tank is acting as a fertilizer. When this happens, it means that your septic tank could be experiencing issues, and you should call your plumber right away.
Another common sign of septic tank failure is if you begin to notice that your kitchen or bathroom sinks or showers are slow to drain. This could be a sign of many things, from overuse of the system to a full or clogged tank.
If you notice gurgling sounds coming from running water or when you flush your toilet, this is another telltale sign of a full septic tank. If you notice this issue, your tank is overdue for a cleaning or pumping.
If you are facing one or more of these issues, it’s time to have your septic tank inspected and cleaned. Give ASAP Plumbing a call today if you require any plumbing services in the Gulfport, MS area at (228)-865-ASAP.

I called the number and had to leave a message. Within 10 minutes someone called me back. They came out within a few hours and fixed my drain. Clay, my technician, was professional, and knowledgeable with a great attitude (especially on a hot Friday afternoon)! Fixed my problem in no time. Their service is outstanding. And prices are reasonable for the area. I would definitely use them again!
Stephanie Mellott First of all, they were ON TIME. In fact, the first visit was early! A slab leak is scary, but within the week, I was scheduled for repair. It took a matter of hours. All of the plumbers were polite and worked quickly and cleanly. When the contractor came to assess the damage to the house, he was so impressed by the lack of damage to my home that he asked me for the name of ASAP twice! Highly recommend this company and their services.
