My septic is backed up, now what?

If your system is backed up, what’s the first thing you should do? You must diagnose the problem. But how do you do that?

Take these steps to fix it:

  1. Have your tank pumped. Most time pumping the tank can alleviate the problem or at least diagnose it.
  2. Check for an interruption of power or a stuck float switch. If your septic alarm is going off, you might have a stuck float switch.
  3. Call a septic pumping professional like LaChance Brothers with the knowledge and tools to diagnose the problem.
