All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services septic system repairs today in Portsmouth, Little Compton, Tiverton, Middletown, Jamestown, Narragansett, and North Kingstown, RI for customers who have contacted us because they are concerned that their septic system may not be operating correctly.  It is wise to have septic concerns addressed promptly, because if you ignore indications that there may be a problem with your septic system, it could become a much more costly septic repair or failure in the future.  Signs of a problem may include:   slow draining toilets and sinks, gurgling noises within the plumbing, sewage odors inside, continuing drainage backups, or bacteria in the well water.  If any of these symptoms exist, check for more pronounced indications of a septic system failure.  Check the absorption field for unusually strong odors.  The typical visually identifiable sign of a septic failure is lush patches of grass or areas in which the plants are flourishing much more than other areas.  Another indicator of a septic failure is the presence of pooled effluent on the surface of the yard.  If this has happened, it means the surrounding soil has become saturated with untreated waste material.  If you have these signs or any other concerns that your septic system needs a repair, please do contact our office for more information or to make an appointment at 508-763-4431 or visit
