I am in the process of re sodding my backyard. This morning as I was breaking up and removing sod my foot sank about 6". I dug up the area and discovered my septic tank and a gap that allows me to see inside.
I had the tank inspected and pumped at the end of last September and it received a "clean" bill of health, no pun intended.
I have called the company that did the inspection no answer (today is Sunday). Should I be concerned that soil and debris has fallen into the tank? What should I expect when I get in touch with this company? Should I expect the company to come back and repair/ re-pump tank?
I am in the process of resodding my backyard. This morning as I broke through the sod my foot sank into the ground about 6". I dug the area up and found my septic and some kind of gap between 2 slabs of concrete. I can see liquid inside. The concrete doesn't look broken - it looks like maybe it's the lid?
I bought the house at the end of last year and had the septic tank pumped and inspected - it had a "clean" bill of health.
Today is Sunday but I called the company that did the inspection anyway, no answer. Should I be concerned about the dirt and debris that have fallen into the tank? Should I expect the company to repair/ re-pump the tank? How does somehing like this happen?
