My name is John, and I live in a rural area on the outskirts of town. I have a septic system that's been on the property for many years. Last summer I had a problem with my septic system that I ignored for quite some time. I didn't think that it was a major problem so I didn't call in a technician. When I finally did call a professional, the septic problem had gotten worse and the repairs ended up being very expensive. After I had to spend a lot of money to get my septic system repaired, I decided to do as much research as I could so that I don't make the same mistake twice. I've written this blog to inform others about the problems that can occur with a septic system, and I hope that the information that's provided can help you from making costly mistakes.
