Septic Problems

Common Signs & Symptoms of an Unhealthy Septic System

Problems with septic systems can be due to many reasons. It is Foothill Sanitary Septic’s  business to  determine the cause of the problem(s). We will not only repair the problem but get to what caused the problem in the first place. We address the cause as well as the solution. Some of the common causes of failure include (but not limited to)  crushed or broken pipes, root intrusion into the laterals, clogged soil affecting soil absorption (from a variety of reasons), the septic tank is overfull with solids, configuration parameters are incorrect for usage and excess water being introduced into the system, whether through overuse or leaking toilets or faucets.

We Are Here To Help.
Please Give Us A Call So We Can Rectify Your Problem (209) 785-6163

If you are experiencing any of the problems that are or are not listed on this page below and have any questions, please call us to discuss and schedule a service call. Alarms; if sounded, signal a problem that will not fix itself.  The longer a problem is left unattended, the more problems it can create. Some problems have a cascading effect that can escalate repair costs.  Surfacing waste water creates an unhealthy environment for you and your neighbors.

Common  Symptoms

**  If there are lights on the front panel of the control box, make a note of which light is on. On AdvanTex Systems, the “Recirculation Alarm” or the “Discharge Alarm”.   On Sand Filter Systems the top light will be marked “Septic Tank”  and the bottom light will be marked  “Sand Filter”
