Baffle Replacement, Alpharetta, GA

image1-5

In Alpharetta, GA, Action Septic Tank Service replaced a deteriorated outlet baffle with a PVC sanitary tee. See the before-and-after photos attached.

Septic tanks should have an inlet and outlet baffle at the inlet and outlet ends. Both should be checked during a septic inspection and/or service.

The inlet baffle directs flow from the house sewer down to the septic tank, detains the sewage and allows the solids to settle. This creates the sludge on the bottom of the tank. The inlet baffle also keeps the scum from plugging up the inlet pipe.

The outlet baffle prevents floating scum and sewage from exiting the septic tank and entering and clogging the drainfield. Many times, an effluent screen is added at the outlet baffle to also keep the scum and sludge from leaving the tank.

Baffles must be properly installed and connected so they are accessible for inspection, repair and replacement. Effluent screens should be properly cleaned as well.

Hydro Jetting in Dunwoody, GA

In Dunwoody, GA, Action Septic Tank Service hydro jetted a residential main line. Please view the attached video to see some of the jetting process.

Prior to jetting, the main line was filled with build-up, including fats, oils and grease. The blockage caused sewage to back up inside the home. Action Septic Tank Service used a jetting machine to clear and unstop the line.

Hydro jetting cleans septic lines, sewer lines and drains. Extreme water pressure is used to clear out fats, oils, grease (FOG), sand, roots and sediment. Hydro jetting will effectively scour your pipes and minimize backups and blockages, keeping your lines and drains clear and properly maintained.

Drainfield Replacement, Decatur, GA

Action Septic Tank Service repaired this septic system in Decatur, GA. See the attached photo grid.

On this septic project, the existing concrete drainfield was deteriorated, broken down and unusable. Also, the line from the septic tank to the drainfield was incorrectly installed and running uphill. This caused the septic tank to improperly drain and overfill.

To repair, Action Septic Tank Service installed new leveled lines using 200 feet of high capacity chamber. Chambers provide a greater treatment area to handle more wastewater with higher efficiency. They're engineered for strength and performance and have optimal installation flexibility. We also replaced the broken main line from the house to the tank and added a new riser and lid. Septic risers make accessing and servicing your tank easier and more efficient and eliminate the need for digging.

Water Jet Machine Pumping, Alpharetta, GA

unnamedIn Alpharetta, GA, Action Septic Tank Service pumped an abrasive water jet machine. See the attached photo.

Water jets are high pressure industrial machines that use water or abrasive water to cut virtually any material. Softer materials are cut using high-pressure water while harder materials require the use of an abrasive. Abrasive water jet machines cut materials like metal, stone, ceramic tile, concrete and glass (not including tempered glass). Softer materials, like rubber, foam, cork and food, are cut with straight water. Water jet machines are fast, versatile, efficient and designed for maximum precision.

Water jet machines have special features. They cut without heat, make narrow cuts, easily cut complex shapes and contours, include enhanced system monitoring, have low waste costs, come in a variety of sizes, and are often environmentally friendly.

Sandy Springs, GA Septic Repair

img_4428.jpegIn Sandy Springs, GA, Action Septic Tank Service repaired this failing septic system. The attached photo grid shows some of our work.

This residential septic project began with pumping the 1500-gallon septic tank. Then, we replaced the outlet tee to prevent sewage from backing up into the pipes. We reconnected the outlet tee to the drainfield and pumped the drainfield lines that were clogged with sewage and solids.

Septic and drainfield failures are often caused by poor maintenance, root blockages, too much organic matter in the effluent, soil that is overly saturated from storm water, excessive water use, vehicles parking/driving over the septic system, cracking pipes, and improper septic design, location and installation.

It's important to know the signs of septic and drainfield failure. Such warnings include backups, gurgling pipes, slow flushing toilets and drains, foul odors, surfacing effluent, patches of greener grass, depressions in the yard and the sounding of a septic alarm.

Crossover, Dunwoody, GA

In Dunwoody, GA, Action Septic Tank Service performed a crossover. The attached video shows the result of our work. 

Prior to the repair, this septic system was not properly distributing the effluent to all four drainfield lines. The line shown in this video was one of the two not being utilized, and the septic system wasn't operating at full capacity. This forced the water level inside the septic tank to overfill and backup into the house.

To repair, we excavated the dry, unused portion of the drainfield. We dug down to where the effluent was reaching and made a path for the water to travel to the dry runs. Then, we reconnected the two lines which allowed for the flow of effluent. The system was now working at full capacity and using all of its lines.

Installing D-Box Speed Levelers, Alpharetta, GA

Installing D-Box Speed Levelers, Alpharetta, GA

In Alpharetta, GA, Action Septic Tank Service installed a distribution box with speed levelers. See the levelers in the attached photo.

Speed levelers regulate the flow of effluent from the distribution box. They allow for equal distribution to your drainfield. Speed levelers are inserted into each outlet pipe.

Dunwoody, GA Septic Lid Replacement

septic tank cleaning maintenance repar dunwoody ga

In Dunwoody, GA, Action Septic Tank Service removed and replaced a cracked septic lid. See the attached photo of the damaged lid.

Unsecured, cracked, broken, damaged, rusty and rotten septic lids may collapse and cause tragic and fatal accidents. Septic lids must be properly installed and attached so that unauthorized access is prohibited. Exposure to raw and open sewage is dangerous. Sewage carries harmful bacteria, viruses and parasites which may cause serious illness and infection.

Only a licensed septic professional should service your septic tank. Here are some other important  safety practices to follow:

  • Keep away from the septic tank whenever it is being serviced. Open septic tanks should never be left unattended.
  • Properly secure septic lids and access ports.
  • Watch for sinking soil and rusty or flimsy septic lids.
  • Keep vehicles and heavy machinery from parking or driving over the septic system.
  • Use caution when locating and digging.
  • Beware of septic backups and surfacing effluent in your yard.
  • Completely avoid leaning over or stepping into the septic tank.
  • Mark off dangerous sites.

Leachfield Repair, Cumming, GA

Leachfield Repair, Cumming, GA

In Cumming, GA, Action Septic Tank Service repaired a residential septic system. This included installing a distribution box and adding high capacity chamber. See the attached photos.

For this onsite septic project, Action Septic Tank Service installed a plastic Infiltrator distribution box. The septic distribution box evenly distributes effluent to the leachfield lines, or trenches. It helps to prevent the leachfield from overloading and eventually failing.

Another part of this septic project included installing 80 feet of Infiltrator high capacity chamber and attaching the new line to the septic distribution box. The chambers provide a greater treatment area to handle more wastewater with higher efficiency. They're engineered for strength and performance and have optimal installation flexibility. The chambers can be installed in straight line trenches or around curves and eliminate the need for stone and gravel.
