A blocked septic tank is a common problem for many households and can cause problems for the householder. A blockage will prevent waste from being flushed away, so it’s important to keep an eye out for any signs that your septic tank might be blocked.
If you think you may have a blocked septic tank, then there are some tips that can help you decide whether or not to call out a professional plumber. Familiarise yourself with the symptoms of a blocked drain and if in doubt, call in the experts!

Blockages in your septic system can occur for a variety of reasons, but some are more common than others. One of the most common reasons for a blocked tank is if it’s not being serviced regularly. This means that the tank needs to be emptied regularly to prevent any debris from building up and blocking the whole system.
Another common cause is flushing unsuitable objects down the toilet. While it may seem harmless, certain items (such as nappies) can get stuck in pockets inside your pipes, blocking them up completely. This can result in sewage backing up into your home or even overflowing onto your lawn!
Toilet paper, tampons, and cat litter can cause problems, too, and it is a better practice to dispose of any non-organic items in a bin rather than flush them down the toilet.Contact us
If you have a septic tank and are experiencing problems with your system, there are a number of things that can go wrong. As mentioned above, septic tanks require regular maintenance and care to ensure that all the components are working properly and have not been damaged by incorrect use or neglect.
There are also a number of different reasons why a blockage may occur within your system. One common cause is when leaves or other debris become trapped in the outflow pipe from your home into the main septic tank. This can be easily remedied by using either a snake or auger device to remove them manually if they are small enough (or call an expert).
For larger objects such as tree roots, however, it’s best to call an expert who will be able to handle this issue quickly and safely so as not to damage any other parts of your home’s plumbing system while removing these bigger obstructions which could otherwise lead down into larger problems such as leaks later on if left untreated; especially since most breakouts occur due to poor maintenance practices anyway!
Septic tank blockages are a common problem, but there are ways to prevent them. By keeping your septic tank clear and regularly pumping it out, you can help keep the system working properly and avoid having to pay for expensive repairs or replacement parts down the line.
