septic system

3 posts in this topic

My septic system is not backing up, but it is also not working properly. I can see the area around the tanks has some water leaking out, at times, but the drainfield must be partially working since it is not backing up into the house. Has this happened to anyone before? Will it correct itself when the weather warms? We just bought the house last July, it is only 10 years old and it passed the inspection last summer. We are do for City sewer and water in 2-3 years so I would not like to stick money in it if I don't have to. However, if i need someone to look at it, does anyone know a reliable septic guy in the brainerd area?

Thanks,

BHS

You may just need to have it pumped out. When I lived in the country I would have to have that done every three or four years and it was this time of year. Other than that few times it always worked well.

It's most likely the frost depth this year,Your leach,drain,mound,Whatever is freezing up Have it pumped and by warm weather it should work.If that does'nt work then call in someone.Next year use leaves,straw,something to insulate it,Not so much the drain field but the pipe leading to it. And your system is backinhg up if its flooding out of the tank.

Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.
