Septic systems are underground wastewater systems used in areas that do not have a central sewer system. If you live on a farm or acreage outside of Edmonton or the surrounding communities, chances are your home utilizes a septic system.
Wastewater is more than what gets flushed down the toilet. Any water in your home that runs down the drain is considered wastewater. This includes water from showers and baths, laundry, the dishwasher, and of course, your bathroom. All of this ends up in your septic system.
The typical septic system can last anywhere from 15 to 40 years depending on a number of different conditions. Whether you’re in need of septic repairs or you need a new septic system installed, Peak Sewer & Underground Services is here to help.
Septic System Repairs
While a septic system can last for many years, it will require regular maintenance and repairs. A septic system that isn’t functioning properly can result in a huge mess and major inconvenience for your home. We offer 24/7 service, providing immediate response times for emergency septic system repairs.
Some common issues you may encounter with a septic system include backups or slow drainage in sinks, tubs, showers, and toilets; random water pooling near the septic system; or bad smells around your home and property. If you notice any of these problems it’s important to contact a professional right away. The sooner an issue can be resolved, the less complex (and likely less expensive) the solution will be! If left for too long, a simple repair can turn into a full replacement, so don’t wait!
