Georgia Septic Repairs
In some cases, pumping a septic tank may not remedy a backup. There are situations when the inlet line may be broken or have roots growing in the line, causing a backup. In other situations, the absorption field or "field lines" may be saturated, and the tank may be overfull. If the absorption field is overfull, the liquid will be over the outlet baffle in the septic tank, and often may be seeping out of the lid of the tank. If this is the case, an estimate can be given at the time of pumping to make the repairs. A permit may be required by the county Environmental Health Department before the absorption field may be repaired or replaced.
