Warning Signs of a Septic Tank Problem
The first step in caring for your septic tank is making sure it’s maintained. Expect to have your septic inspected and pumped every 1-3 years. Here’s how to know if it’s time to deal with a troublesome tank:
- Water drains slowly from sinks, showers, tubs, and toilets.
- Toilets and drains put out a bad odour.
- Your lawn is lush and vibrant, or has a strong sewer smell.
- Raw sewage pools outside or backs up into the house.
If you notice these warning signs, call Pro Service Mechanical for immediate help! We’re available in Saskatoon 24/7.
Repairing or Replacing Your Septic Tank
You can usually count on a septic tank to last an average of 25 years. Of course, many variables can influence this lifespan such as:
- Quality of tank installation
- Household size
- Tank capacity
- Frequency of maintenance
- Proper toilet paper use
When you run into an issue, it can be hard to decide whether repairing will work or if replacing is the better option. A comprehensive inspection by a professional is the only way to truly gauge which is the best option in the long run. We compare the current condition with the severity of the problem to help you get the most value and life out of your equipment.

Do I Have a Septic or Sewer System?
If you live in a residential neighbourhood or downtown area, it’s likely your home is connected to the municipal sewer system. The waste drains in your home connect to a larger public sewer main nearby. Waste is transported to be dealt with by local city sewer services.
In rural areas or if you live on a large property, you probably have a septic system. In this situation, your home’s waste goes into a large underground tank. The tank separates and digests what it can, and some are released into your leach field. The rest has to be pumped by a septic specialist (like us!).
