It’s Raining, It’s Pouring – Why Is My Septic System Overflowing?

Wet weather septic backups are not an uncommon problem. In Miami- Dade County and most of South Florida, this usually happens during Spring and Summer seasons – These backups usually happen being that the these are the wettest times of the season and of the year. Big downpours are usually the cause for these lingering problems with the storm systems. With heavy rainfall comes saturated soils- soils too wet to absorb outflow from your septic tank and leach field. Service calls due to sewage backups and drainage problems in toilets, bath tubs, washing machines and sinks increase during this time of year, but with Jason Septics, you can rest assure that you and your family will have no worrries as thier experts are here to help 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.

Is there any way to avoid these wet weather sewage backup problems?

A properly designed and installed septic system is the first place to start. This is the best defense against septic system problems. The next solution is to run all down spouts away from your drain field, direct drainage from paved areas away from the leach field and avoid running cars, trucks and heavy equipment across the drainage area to prevent compacted soils. You can also reduce your water usage during heavy periods of rain – less water into the system means less water going into a leach field that is already saturated.

Finally, having your system regularly serviced can ensure a trouble-free septic system even in times of wet weather. Have your entire septic system inspected annually and keep your septic tank pumped on a regular schedule. A system in good working order is a great defense against wet weather overload.
