Have you recently experienced flooding in Arlington? You may need professional septic system service. Even if your plumbing seems to be working properly, there may be damage that needs attention. Keep the following tips in mind as you make recovery plans for your septic system after a flood on your property.
Stop Using Your System
Even if your property seems unaffected by the flooding, stop using your septic system while the flood waters remain. Refrain from running water or flushing toilets until after the water level has receded, especially if your drainfield was impacted. Have a septic tank professional examine your system before you use it again.
Be Careful Where You Drive
Flooding sometimes requires homeowners to drive over unusual parts of their property in order to access their homes. Be extra careful not to drive over your drainfield. The ground may be saturated and you could do serious damage to your tank.
Schedule Septic System Service After the Flood
Make sure you schedule septic tank pumping and septic system repairs as soon as you’re able. A professional can assess your tank during pumping. If repairs are needed, waiting could cause significantly more damage.
