Gravel System Installation, Cumming, GA

image1

In Cumming, GA, Action Septic Tank Service installed a new drainfield using a gravel system. See the attached photos showing some of our actual work.

For this particular system, the customer experienced a septic backup and saw surfacing effluent in his yard. After initially assessing the situation, Action Septic Tank Service planned to repair the drainfield by adding to the chambers already in place to allow for more system capacity. However, when we dug down to tie into the chambers, we noticed they had been improperly installed and were collapsed. The collapsed chambers could no longer hold any water because the space underneath became filled with mud. Hence, the system failed and water came up in the yard.

To fix the problem, we opted to install a drainfield, this time using a gravel system. This would keep the lines placed in a more customized layout, at a shallower depth and in good soil conditions with a better perculation rate.

Drainfield Installation, Marietta, GA

image1

In Marietta, GA, Action Septic Tank Service needed to replace a drainfield. We removed the old, deteriorated concrete lines and installed high capacity chamber. See the attached photos.

Prior to the repair, the Marietta customer experienced a septic backup and could not flush the toilets inside the home. We dug down and found the concrete lines were broken, filled with dirt and not being utilized. The water was not able to travel through the drainfield and into the yard.

To fix, we replaced the broken, concrete lines with 195 feet of high capacity chamber. This installation allowed the system to properly flow. On-site chambers are engineered for strength and performance and have optimal installation flexibility. No rock, gravel or sand is needed. They can be installed in a straight line trench or around curves. The chamber system is the most advanced way to install a drainfield in the on-site industry.

Septic Tank Upgrading, Milton, GA

septic may

In Milton, GA, Action Septic Tank Service added access risers to the septic tank. Please view the attached photo grid.

Upgrading your septic tank will help to improve system function and protect your drainfield. Consider installing access risers, adding an effluent screen and/or putting in a two-compartment tank.

Installing access risers makes it easy to locate the septic tank and allows access for maintenance and repair without having to dig up the yard. They are cost effective, won’t deteriorate and rot over time and are easier to install. PVC risers have lightweight fiberglass lids that cannot be removed without proper equipment.

An effluent screen is a filter that fits into the outlet end of the septic tank. It allows the water to pass through the tank into the soil absorption area while catching the solids. This keeps the drainfield from clogging and eventually failing. Effluent screens require little maintenance, are cost effective and can be installed into existing septic tanks.

If you're installing a new septic tank, think about getting one with two compartments. These tanks are larger, trap the solids more effectively and better protect the drainfield.

Septic Service, Metro Atlanta, GA

img_7862 action septic

In Metro Atlanta, GA, Action Septic Tank Service performed much needed maintenance on a septic system. See the attached photo grid.

This particular job involved routine septic service. The work included pumping the septic tank and cleaning the outlet filter.

Proper septic care and service will keep your system running effectively. This will help to give you years of optimal performance.

The filter should be regularly inspected and cleaned. Without maintenance, the filter may become clogged. This leads to slow drainage, clogged drains and septic backups. Have the septic tank pumped every 2-3 years and schedule annual septic inspections. Avoid parking or driving over your septic system. Keep coffee grinds, dental floss, feminine hygiene products, diapers, paints and pesticides from going down your drains. Plant trees and shrubs away from your septic system. Keep on file a septic drawing and detailed septic records.

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 atlanta ga septic tank repair

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.
