Septic Pumping, Dunwoody, GA


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.
