Does My Home Warranty Cover Septic Systems?


Imagine you come home after a long day of work. You want to have dinner but you notice a strong foul smell coming from your basement. Your septic line has failed and backed up into your home. Sewage is flooding your basement causing thousands in water damage and poses a health risk to you and your family.If you own a home warranty plan for your septic system then this issue can be fixed with a service call fee. However if you don’t have home warranty coverage you will end up spending a lot of time,money,and energy to fix this issue.

What is a Septic System ?

Your septic system works in tandem with your plumbing system to remove waste from your home. The Sewage Ejector Pump serves to pump waste up into the sewer line .A failed Sewage Ejector Pump can be messy and stressful. Your sewer/septic line may weaken and break over time due to damage caused by normal wear and tear. Breakdowns are hard to predict due to the system being buried underground.

Septic System Maintenance

A failing septic system is expensive to repair or replace. Proper maintenance is a necessity. Pump your system every three to five years. Avoid drain cleaner as it can severely damage your pipes.
