Main Causes

Septic tanks can clog or backup for many reasons. Common culprits include heavier items close to the leach field and intrusions from tree and shrub roots. Tank issues can also be related to flushing things not meant to be flushed and the overuse of harsh drain cleaning chemicals.

Michigan has about more than 1.3 million onsite wastewater treatment systems, mostly for single-family homes. Keeping septic tanks in good condition can protect the water quality of the local area. The wastewater that flows from the drains goes to the septic tank. Failure to clean the tank could mean solids and other decomposing materials will flow into the drain field., eventually causing failure. Other top causes of septic failure are:


tree roots

collapsed tanks

excessive water due to heavy rain pours

clogged pipes

Depending on the size of your septic tank, we recommend regularly having it cleaned. At least have it cleaned every three years.
