Septic Service, Alpharetta, GA

In Alpharetta, GA, Action Septic Tank Service repaired a blocked septic system. The attached photo on top shows the water incorrectly coming out of the clean-out. The video on the bottom shows the water properly flowing following the repair.

Prior to this repair, the tee was completely clogged with grease and detergents. This put the septic system under too much pressure and caused the water to shoot out of the clean-out. To fix, we unclogged the tee so that the water would effectively make its way through the system. 

Action Septic Tank Service recommends keeping fats, oils and grease from going down your drains. Have the tee checked during your regular septic service. Install a septic filter to catch the solids and help extend the life of your drainfield. Pump your septic tank every 2-3 years and treat your system monthly.

Roswell, GA Baffle Replacement

image1-4

In Roswell, GA, Action Septic Tank Service replaced an outlet baffle and line going out to the drainfield. See the attached photo grid.

The outlet baffle prevents floating scum and sewage from exiting the septic tank and entering and clogging the drainfield. When properly installed, the outlet baffle keeps the effluent correctly moving from the clear zone to the next part of the septic tank.

Baffles must be properly installed or they can quickly deteriorate and not function properly. They should be checked at the time of your septic inspection.

Many times, an effluent screen is also added at the outlet baffle to help keep the scum and sludge from leaving the tank. Regular cleaning is necessary to ensure your effluent screen works effectively.

Septic Service, Marietta, GA

ACTION SEPTIC TANK SVC SEPTIC REPAIR, INSTALL

In Marietta, East Cobb, GA, Action Septic Tank Service cleared a blocked main line using a rooter machine. We used 50-feet of cable to safely and quickly clean the inside of the pipe.

Prior to the repair, the customer's toilets  were gurgling and could not be flushed. We found the main line from the house to the septic tank was intruded with tree roots, toilet paper and sanitary products. This blockage prevented the water to correctly make its way through the system and so it overflowed. Once we used the rooter machine to clear the clogged line, the system began to properly flow again.

Roswell, GA Septic Service

In Roswell, GA, Action Septic Tank Service performed a crossover. A crossover is used to connect a field line to the next field line in a series of trenches. See the attached video.

Prior to this repair, water was backing up in and around the home. Inside the septic tank, the water level was high and the system was blocked. We found that only a small percentage of the drainfield was actually being utilized.

To fix, we performed a crossover and tied the wet line back into the dry line. This allowed the water to properly flow again. The system was now working at full capacity and using all of its lines.

Septic Tank Service, Alpharetta, GA

In Alpharetta, GA, Action Septic Tank Service replaced and rewired the float switch inside the pump tank. See the attached video.


Prior to this repair, the float switch alarm was sounding. We discovered that the float switch malfunctioned. It was incorrectly wired and improperly fastened with tape. Also, the faulty wiring did not have a protective waterproof sealant in place. To repair, we dug up all of the old wires and properly replaced, rewired and secured the float switch.

A float switch will sound when the water inside the tank rises to a certain level. This alert means that the septic system may be on the verge of overflowing. It is possible the sewage pump has stopped working or is jammed. There may be an issue with the power source or the alarm switch itself. The septic system could also be failing or have blockages.

Septic Service, Canton, GA

In Canton, GA, Action Septic Tank Service cleaned this septic filter. The attached video shows the filter after being serviced.

Septic filters allow the water to pass through the septic tank into the drainfield while catching the solids. This keeps the drainfield from clogging and eventually failing.

Septic filters require little maintenance, are cost effective, and can be installed into existing septic tanks. Action Septic Tank Service recommends having your septic filter inspected and cleaned yearly.

Septic Pumping, Dunwoody, GA

video

In Dunwoody, GA, Action Septic Tank Service pumped this septic tank. Check out the attached video to see some of the pumping in action.

The septic tank receives untreated wastewater from your home or business. Inside the septic tank, the heavy solids settle to the bottom forming the sludge layer. The light solids and grease float to the top making up the scum. The wastewater, which forms the middle layer, exits the tank and goes out to the drainfield.

Bacteria work to naturally break down the sludge and scum. The leftover scum and sludge that remains must be pumped out. Without regular pumping, the buildup of the solids becomes too high and moves to the drainfield. This causes drainfield clogging and system failure.

Action Septic Tank Service recommends pumping your septic tank every 2-3 years. Additional best practices include:

  • Schedule annual septic inspections.
  • Add a monthly septic treatment.
  • Keep a drawing of your septic system on file.
  • Maintain detailed records of your septic service.
  • Conserve water.
  • Divert greywater away from your septic system.
  • Check for leaks in and around your home or business.

Septic Repair, Roswell, GA

screenshot-2016-10-17-11-46-07

In Roswell, GA, Action Septic Tank Service repaired a failing septic system. The septic filter was completely clogged and wasn't allowing the water to flow to the distribution box. This caused the entire septic system to backup.

To repair, Action Septic Tank Service pulled and cleaned the septic filter. This allowed the water to make its way to the distribution box. The attached video shows the system properly flowing.

The distribution box is located between the septic tank and drainfield. It evenly distributes the effluent, or wastewater, to the drainfield.  Prior to this repair, the wastewater was unable to reach the distribution box and so the system became overloaded. Action Septic Tank Service recommends having the distribution box checked during your yearly septic inspection.

Septic filter cleaning is equally important to keep your system running smoothly. Regular maintenance will help to extend the life of your drainfield and avoid slow drains and septic backups in and around your home or business. Try to have your septic filter cleaned every 12-18 months.

Septic Pumping, Milton, GA

In Milton, GA, Action Septic Tank Service pumped a residential septic tank. See the attached video of the septic pumping.

Inside the septic tank, the solid and liquid wastes are separated. The sludge settles to the bottom of the tank, the scum floats to the top and the wastewater makes up the middle layer. Regular septic pumping helps to prevent the solids from entering and clogging the drainfield.

Properly designed septic systems allow for the accumulation of sludge. Without regular pumping, the sludge level increases and the sewage does not have enough time to settle. The solids then begin to exit into the drainfield which causes clogging. Now the clogged drainfield cannot properly absorb the wastewater and the system begins to backup in and around your home or business. You may also notice surfacing effluent in your yard.

Action Septic Tank Service recommends having your septic tank pumped every 2-3 years and scheduling annual septic inspections. Keep detailed records of your septic service. Also, save a copy of your septic drawing, which shows the location of your system.

Septic Lid Repair, Canton, GA

septic-tank-service-canton

In Canton, GA, Action Septic Tank Service replaced a broken septic lid. See the before-and-after photos attached.

Cracked septic lids can weaken and collapse. Septic lids and access ports must be properly installed and secured so that unauthorized access is prohibited and potentially fatal accidents are completely avoided. Exposure to raw and open sewage is dangerous. Sewage carries harmful bacteria, viruses and parasites which may cause serious illness and infection.

Open septic tanks should never be left unattended. Avoid leaning over or stepping into your septic tank. Keep vehicles and heavy machinery from parking and driving over your septic system. It's also important to have your septic system regularly inspected and serviced.
