Overloaded Septic Systems & Saturated Drain Fields

Some of the troubles you could be seeing can come in spring when there is more rainfall or after snowmelt if in areas of colder climates. 

Strong odours are certainly a sign of a failing component in the system, we often see field failures during the spring when the ground is oversaturated. 

The additional groundwater can certainly overload an already troubled system and this may bring sewage to the surface causing odours and sometimes a back up in the home.

One of the ways to help rest your field area during these overstressed months of spring is to have your septic tank pumped and become very conscientious of the volume of water being used during those times.  This can often times give you a little more time in having the system assessed properly and putting a plan in order to remedy the malfunction.
