SEPTIC Tank Pumping

septic tank pumping services

septic system is like having your own wastewater treatment plant in your backyard. Its job is to take all of that wastewater, treat it, and release it to the drain field where the soil and rocks act as natural filters. However, this treatment plant of your own does require your attention from time to time in order to continue working as intended.

Your septic tank plays a vital role in your home’s overall plumbing: it ensures that your sewage and wastewater have somewhere safe to go. It stores hazardous materials in order to prevent contamination to your property—and the environment. However, eventually, the tank will fill up. When that time comes, you can rely on The Original Plumber for complete septic tank pumping services in Atlanta, GA. Our crew works with all tank styles, ensuring all the waste is removed safely. With our professional equipment and experience, no tank pumping or cleaning job is too challenging. Call today to schedule service for your septic system to ensure your plumbing continues running normally.

It’s important to note that not all plumbers are qualified to perform septic tank cleanout. However, our technicians have the training and understanding of how to do this effectively and thoroughly. Some businesses may only do part of the job, but our company provides you with pumping, cleaning, and inspection. Call our septic pumping Atlanta office with your questions about services.

How Often Should You Pump Your Septic Tank?

Every household is different, but in general, you should pump your septic tank every one to three years. Factors such as the size of your tank and how many people are in your household must be taken into consideration to determine your maintenance plan. Talk to our plumbers to determine how frequently you should schedule septic pumping.

Warning Signs of Tank Trouble

Since septic tanks are generally out of sight and out of mind, it can be easy to miss warning signs of trouble. However, a septic tank issue can cause massive property damage if left unaddressed. That’s why it’s vital to know your system’s red flags. The warning signs to watch out for include:

  • Sluggish Draining
  • Sluggish Flushing Toilet
  • Bad Odors
  • Standing Water on Lawn
  • Sewage Backup
  • Noticeably Healthier Lawn Near Septic Tank

Routine Maintenance and Septic System Cleaning by Knowledgeable Technicians

A little knowledge of your septic system can go a long way toward maintaining it properly. First, our technicians pump out the sludge, using a vacuum hose. Then, comes the cleaning which involves removing all of the liquids and solids in the tank. You can imagine this amounts to a lot of waste and wastewater, especially if done every three to five years.

With all of that out of the way, our technicians can inspect the tank to make sure it’s in good working condition. When this is not the case, we recommend either repairs or a replacement if we think one is necessary. Once this is taken care of, you have a septic tank that is clean and ready to operate smoothly.

Red Flags That Cleaning is Needed

Septic tank cleaning is a key component of caring for your tank. When regularly maintained, your tank likely gives you no trouble at all. However, when it needs to be pumped and cleaned, you’ll start to notice some red flags. By paying close attention to these, you can avoid larger problems in the future:

  • Overflowing Drains in the Bathrooms & Basement
  • Water That Pools near the Drain Field
  • Overwhelming Sewage Smell
  • Grass that’s Much Greener near the Drain Field
