- Leech field problems – Your septic system uses bacteria to break down the solid waste and then disposes of it by leeching into a series of pipes buried under your property. Clogs in the pipes leading from the tank to the leech field can cause big issues for your septic pump. If your drains are constantly clogging, you hear gurgling noises from your sinks or drains, or if you smell any foul odors from around your property, it could be that your leech field is having problems.
- Type of septic tanks – Some septic tanks are simply a large chamber that fills up with sludge. If it gets too full, it can cause problems for your home’s plumbing system.
- Bacterial issues – If the leech field in your home is too deep, the bacteria growing there may not have access to enough oxygen which can grow slime that clogs the pipes.
