Atlanta Septic Tank Service


When a sewer is not available, a conventional septic system may be installed, if approved by the Georgia Dept of Health.  A septic system is a good alternate, but requires periodic maintenance to ensure the system works properly. If sewage is backing up into your home or surfacing to the ground, simply pumping the tank may not always remedy the problem. The frequency of septic pumping may vary depending on the number of people living in the home. The average family should have their septic tank emptied every 3-5 years to remove the solids. This helps to maintain the integrity of the absorption field. Call 678-848-4365 or Schedule an Appointment Atlanta Septic Tank Service

Septic Pumping

Regular maintenance is the most important factor to ensure the longevity and reliability of your home or commercial septic system. Regular pumping helps to prevent any solid from escaping into the drainfield and thus clogging soil pores. Anytime Septic’s certified septic technicians recommend that a septic system be pumped every three to five years and more often if the home is equipped with a garbage disposal.

Septic Maintenance

Having a licensed professional regularly inspect and pump your septic tank is essential in the long-term care and maintenance of your septic system. The most common failures of a septic system are most often attributed to improper use and lack of pumping at regular intervals. A septic tank is designed in such a way that solids and other materials settle and form sludge at the bottom of the tank. One of Anytime Septic’s licensed technicians removes this layer to help prevent these solids from clogging the disposal system and causing untimely system failure. By simply performing regular maintenance you can save thousands in costly repairs and headache. Call 678-848-4365 or Schedule an Appointment

Proper Use of a Septic System

To maximize the life of your septic system there are few things you should take into account. Garbage disposals while convenient in the kitchen put excess stress on the septic system as large amounts of solids are pumped directly into the system. Homeowners should also avoid pouring cooking grease, oils, paper towels, sanitary hygiene products, condoms, cigarettes, or plastics into your septic system. Filling your septic tank with these items can lead to your tank being overloaded and clogged disposal fields. You should also watch the amount of non-biodegradable chemicals used in your septic system, chemicals such as bleach, detergent, fabric softener, paints, paint thinners, motor oil, degreasers, and various other household wastes. The septic system is a living environment as bacteria breaks down waste and outside chemicals can disrupt this process. The more water that flows through your system, the more stress that is placed on it, for this reason practice water conservation by only washing full loads of laundry, fixing leaking faucets and toilets, and installing low-flow plumbing fixtures. One should never drain swimming pools or hot tubs through their septic systems. Lastly homeowner’s should know where their septic tank is located before doing any type of landscaping. One should ensure any plants or trees planted won’t interfere with the septic system as roots can and will damage pipes and clog the drain field, both of which are costly repairs. Following these steps will greatly increase the life and usability of your septic system. Call 678-848-4365 or Schedule an Appointment AtlantaSeptic

Atlanta Septic Tank Pumping

Septic tanks are typically comprised of single or double compartment tanks of concrete, metal, or plastic. At the top of these compartments there is a lid that provides access for regular pump-outs by a certified technician. The lid is typically buried anywhere from 6 inches to 3 feet below the surface. The soil covering the lid is removed to grant access to the technician. To prevent serious injury homeowner’s should let the technician remove the lid as septic tanks can contain deadly gases. By having one of our technicians perform periodic septic tank pump-outs, you can help prevent costly repairs to your septic system. Septic tank pump-outs depend on the use of the system and the number of people residing in the household. Typically Anytime Septic recommends that most systems be pumped every 3 – 5 years. If you notice ponding water or areas that seem wet all the time, you should consult with one of Anytime’s certified contractors so that we can get the appropriate permits to properly repair or replace your system. If you have any questions please consult with one of our technicians 678-848-4365 or Schedule an Appointment
