Septic Tank Services in Akron & Northeast Ohio
If you’re part of the quarter of Americans who live with a septic tank, it’s essential to provide proper maintenance for the system. Septic systems work by bringing wastewater into the tank through the top. Inside the tank, solid waste gradually moves to the bottom. Excess liquid exits to a drain field where it decomposes anaerobically. As you can imagine, any issues with your septic tank can lead to extremely unpleasant outcomes. Superior Drainage has the equipment and know-how to keep your septic tank doing its job and fix any problems as they arise.

Septic Tank Repair
Several things can prompt the need for septic tank repair, including:
Root penetration: Wastewater is attractive to plants, so they will start to grow toward the unit. If roots are big enough, they can cause severe damage to the tank.
Corrosion: If there is a gas buildup in the tank, it can cause enough corrosion to breach the tank walls and cause a leak.
Detached dividing wall: This causes one chamber to trap too much solid waste, which can overload the system to the point of failure.
Although your septic tank is underground, there are still several red flags you may notice if your septic tank needs repair. Look out for these warning signs:
Water pooling in your yard without a clear explanation
A distinctive foul odor is wafting around the house or property
Yellow or brown patches in your lawn due to septic waste leakage
Slowed draining of toilets
We can provide any repairs that you need and the maintenance necessary to ensure your septic system stays in good shape for years to come.
