Common signs it's time for septic repair

This happens most commonly in households with kids. A toy goes swimming in the toilet and ends up on it's way to the septic tank. It can get lodged along the way, or even get stuck in the exit ports to the drainfield.

To prevent septic clogging, avoid sending these down the drain:

  • Oil
  • Grease
  • Cotton
  • Diapers
  • Gauze
  • Cigarette butts
  • Paint, varnish, or garage chemicals

This is pretty obvious to spot, and is a sure sign that either something went down the drain that shouldn't have or it's time for a pump out. Backups can be a dangerous health issue if not corrected immediately.

Tree Roots:
Tree roots are a common cause for septic system destruction. Trees and other plants tend to grow roots into water sources, and a septic system is a large target.

Doing regular pump outs and inspections can spot tree root problems early on and reduce the damage.

Damaged Lines:
If you are planning excavation or landscaping on your property, make sure you know where your septic system is. Digging without knowing can be a costly mistake and cause both the excavation and septic projects to be much more expensive than anticipated.

Typical repairs for septic systems

The #1 way to reduce the cost of your septic system over the years is to make sure to have it pumped out regularly. Get on a 3-5 year schedule with a septic company near you. This will be an easy way to prevent costly repairs.

For tree roots any plumber or septic company with a power auger can remove the issue before it gets too bad.

Backups and clogs can usually be solved by "snaking" the lines to push the debris through. Clogs might also require a septic company to inspect the tank after a pump out.

I have an aunt and uncle that live in Windermere FL, and they call me when they have a problem around the house, since I know so many people in business there. I got a call that their toilets and sinks were backed up and they were on a septic system. I worked for Veterans Septic back in the 1990's and they were out of business.  I was referred to A1 by the previous owner and Dave Smith and his crew did a wonderful Job!As it turned out they needed a total replacement (tank was cracked and the drain-field was long overdue.... He got a pump truck out right away and had a crew out there on Saturday to replace the tank and lay a new drain-field....that is what I call service. I highly recommend them, the were on time fairly priced and guaranteed their work!

A great company and the guy was nice and even scheduled it between 11:00 and 1:00 and was here on time and got the job done.

Had a problem with my septic. I called for my septic to get pumped because it was backing up in my bathroom. When they came to pump my tank they was so honest all I need was a new filter because it was dirty and not flowing right I guess. So the guy came to my house and told me it doesn't need to be emptied it just needed a new filter. He saved me a lot of money because I would of paid for a new filter and a pumpout. Instead all I had to pay for was a new filter. He also showed me my septic was empty after he took the dirty filter out so it flowed correctly. A1 Septic Orlando is so honest I would recommend them to anyone.


Thank you a-1. I started having a bubbling sound from my 17 .shower when I flushed the toilet. I called a local septic company to empty my tank and was told that my entire drain field was bad. So I started the process of getting quotes to replace the system. That was until Tom from a1 showed up. He said based on the age of my home I should have a filter and that would cause the bubbling sound if it was dirty. Sure enough once Tom took the time to open the back of my tank he found a dirty filter. The total cost was $125. Much cheaper than the $4200-$6500 quotes I received from 3 other companies I'm just glad there are still honest companies out there. I will only use a1 from now on.
