How do I know my septic is in failure?

Sewage odor near the septic tank or leaching area, slow-running drains and toilets. If any of these symptoms develop, have the septic tank pumped and inspected by a Title V system inspector. A listing of Title V System Inspectors can be found on the Commonwealth of Massachusetts website.
