septic system

Question

bhs91

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.

      Don I'm surprised as how much the river sections are opening up. Checked from the 71 bridge towards Cold Spring and there's actually a bunch of open sections. Noticed the honey hole area, in the rivers mouth entering cedar island is really going quick also. Definitely looking better for a possible ice out on the lakes on the chain. Time will tell

      went out tonight and found between 24 to 28 inches of ice away from the current areas.    The river is now poking into shoe about 100 yards.   Don

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner
