Septic Systems Problems in Lodi, Poynette, Arlington WI

If you are experiencing problems with your septic tank or system, there could be a number of issues. Please review the information below for some insight about septic systems and common problems.

Remember, if the wastewater cannot soak into the soil under the drainfield bed, sewage may back up into the system creating two distinct symptoms

  • Wastewater puddling on the ground, or…
  • Sewage backing up into the house.

After flushing the toilet, if the water does not go down, or you hear a blup-blup-blup sound – this is telling you the tank or drainfield is not accepting water. A clue to what is happening is grass will get greener and taller than the rest of your yard when the wastewater can no longer drain thru the pipe, rock, or sand. This is because the water will begin to push to the top of the drainfield and begin to puddle at the surface.

Possible Causes –

  • Poor Soil Conditions – A septic system placed in unsuitable soil for the flow generated from a house.
  • Excessive Water Usage – A septic system designed too small for the house it serves or too small for the water generated from the house. If sludge or scum is allowed to escape out of the septic tank and enter the drainfield, the pipe, rock, or sand may become clogged. If this happens the liquid will not be absorbed into the sand. This common problem is caused by a failure to have the septic tank regularly pumped out. It is also important to note that, over the normal operating life of a septic system, this clogging will naturally occur and can eventually degrade a system. Again, regular pump outs are the best preventative service that can be performed.
  • High Water Table and Septic System Failures – During wet or abnormally wet seasons, groundwater may rise into a drainfield and force sewage to the surface. This is caused by an error in design or sometimes by a significant change in the surrounding landscape.
  • Roots and Clogging of Septic System Failures – The roots of trees and bushes planted too close to the septic tank can sometimes enter and block the pipes of the system.
  • Physical Damage to Septic System Components Causing Septic Failures – cars, trucks or heavy equipment passing over any portion of the system can damage pipes, septic tank or other portions of the septic system causing a malfunction.
