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.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
