Understanding Septic System Problems

After we moved into a home with a septic system, I realized that we had to do something to understand what to expect. We started reading more and more about septic issues, and before we knew it, we had our first problem. Fortunately, because we were prepared, we didn't have to second guess our decision to call a repair person. Now when we have septic system issues, we don't worry as much about it and it is a great feeling. This blog is all about understanding common septic system problems and knowing how to fix them the first time around.


Two Ways to Have Bathroom Options During a Septic Tanks Replacement Appointment

If you need to have your septic tank replaced, then you won't be able to use your property's toilet or sink while the septic service provider is replacing your tank. In this situation, these suggestions could be helpful.

1. Rent a restroom trailer 

In these circumstances, you might be considering renting a portable toilet. However, it would be much better to rent a restroom trailer instead. While a portable toilet might be fine if you only need to use it once or twice over a single day, using it for several days in a row could be unpleasant since these toilets tend to be cramped, badly-lit, and fitted with only the tiniest of sinks.

Conversely, restroom trailers are spacious, offer better lighting, and include roomy sinks that allow you to comfortably wash both your face and hands. Having access to a restroom of this caliber during a septic tank replacement could make this experience far less disruptive.

2. Order the restroom trailer from the company that's replacing your septic tank

You should try to use a septic service that also rents restroom trailers so that you don't have to rent this item from a separate company. Requesting both of these services from the same business should simplify things. For example, the septic service provider will arrive with both the new tank and the restroom trailer on their vehicle, which means you will be able to start using the latter immediately when they begin removing the old septic tank.

Here are some scenarios to consider:

  • If you were to order the restroom trailer from another company and they showed up late (i.e. several hours after the septic tank removal had already begun and your bathroom was unusable) you would have to manage without any restroom facilities for this period, which could be highly uncomfortable.
  • If you take this approach, you won't have to make payments to two separate companies but will instead only have to make a single payment to the septic service business.
  • Because the septic service provider will be working on your property, they can readily answer and address any small issues that you have with it. If on the other hand, you were to rent it from a different company, you would have to call them up and potentially get them to visit your property to assist you.
