Septic Tank Pumping, Maintenance & Installation in Atlanta, GA

When was the last time you had your septic tank pumped? A majority of homeowners completely fail to perform this key component of plumbing system maintenance. However, High Priority Plumbing understands that having a properly maintained septic system is critical to the health and happiness of your home.

How Does a Septic Tank Work

The basic function of a septic tank is to separate liquids and solids. When you flush the toilet, run the sink, use the garbage disposal, etc… both liquids and solids go down at the same time. Once they reach the septic tank, the liquids and solids will begin to separate from one another. Solids will either float to the top or sink to the bottom, while liquids will remain in the center. Liquids will reach the leach field by traveling through the exit pipe, which drains the center of the septic tank. This leaves the remaining solids to gradually decompose with the help of bacteria, something very crucial for the septic tank to work properly.

How Often Should My Septic Tank Be Pumped?

According to the EPA, the average household septic system should be inspected at least every three to five years by a septic service professional. Most household septic tanks are also pumped within three to five years. Some alternative systems, such as electrical float switches, pumps, or mechanical components should be inspected a little more often, generally once a year.

Septic Tank Preventative Maintenance Services in Conyers, GA:

Sometimes the best way to avoid a Septic Tank problem is through routine maintenance! We recommend scheduling a yearly visit from one of our highly qualified septic technicians. Our technicians will record sludge and slime levels in your tank as well as check for any leaks or repairs your tank may need in order to remain in good condition. This includes maintenance of your Baffle Tee — a line entering the septic tank from your home. A properly maintained inlet baffle will direct incoming waste downward, below the liquid level, and minimize disruption of the liquid and solid layers in your tank.

Septic Risers Installation in Conyers, GA:

We also install Septic Tank Risers. Installing a tank riser will give you and your technician access to your septic tank at ground level. This is done by adding a piped shaft from the top of your tank to the ground level. Access to your tank is much easier when risers are properly installed and make it much easier for routine maintenance and any necessary repairs.
