Repairing vs. Replacing Your Septic Tank

Are sewage odors overtaking your yard? Is waste backing out of your toilets or drains? It can be difficult to determine the exact cause of your problem since your septic tank, drain field, and pipes are all located underneath the ground.

Contact your Culpeper County septic tank experts for help. We will assess the problem and let you know whether your septic tank needs to be repaired or replaced. Culpeper Home Services has the equipment to perform full excavations to treat your septic problem.

Septic system problems can often be resolved with a quick fix; more extensive problems, however, may require you to consider a full tank replacement. Our experts will recommend the most cost-effective option depending on the nature and extent of the problem. Here are a few factors to consider:

What was the cause of damage?

Certain types of damage may require tank replacement. Has your tank been affected by tree root intrusion? Were internal components damaged? We will evaluate the problem and determine if it can be successfully repaired or if you will need to install a new septic tank.

Is your septic tank still under warranty?

If a manufacturing defect is what caused the problem, it’s best to have the tank replaced while it’s still under warranty. Choosing to repair can potentially void a warranty.

Are you looking for a short-term or long-term solution?

We understand that a new septic tank installation may not fit your budget at the moment; in this case, our experts can offer to repair the problem to serve as a short-term solution.

However, you will eventually need to consider replacing your tank if you plan to remain in the same house long-term; this can also help increase your property value should you decide to sell in the future.

Our Septic Tank Repair Services

Problems with your septic system can result in wastewater flooding your drain field or backing into your home. These issues often signal a septic tank that is overdue for pumping. Once the tank has been pumped, our experts will examine your system further to see if there are any additional problems that need to be addressed, such as a clogged septic tank filter.

Making Changes to Your Home?

You May Need a New Septic Tank

Are you planning to add bedrooms to your home to accommodate extra household members? Your current septic tank may not be enough to handle the additional demand.

One way to solve this problem is to have your tank pumped more often. Reducing your daily water use and the amount of wastewater that goes down your drains can also help.

However, if these options are not working for your household, you may need to install a new, appropriately sized septic tank. Culpeper Home Services will help you through the entire process, pull the necessary permits, and make sure your new tank is installed safely.
