Greer Emergency Septic Service: What Constitutes a Septic Tank Emergency

Some homes, particularly those out in rural areas, are not connected to city sewer systems.Β  Rather, they have individual septic systems to trap and treat household water waste.Β  While the initial cost of septic system installation is costly, if it is maintained properly it can provide you with reliable service for years and years. They provide a system that allows for the wastewater to be removed from your home. They are usually easy to maintain with proper care, but neglecting your septic tank can result in costly overhauls or worse, require emergency maintenance to eliminate clogged or failed systems. Emergency situations require fast attention.

What Is a Septic Tank and How Does It Work?

Septic systems are underground wastewater treatment structures, commonly used in rural areas without centralized sewer systems. They use a combination of nature and proven technology to treat wastewater from household plumbing produced by bathrooms, kitchen drains, and laundry.

A typical septic system consists of a septic tank and a drain field, or soil absorption field.

The septic tank digests organic matter and separates floatable matter (e.g., oils and grease) and solids from the wastewater. Soil-based systems discharge the liquid (known as effluent) from the septic tank into a series of perforated pipes buried in a leach field, chambers, or other special units designed to slowly release the effluent into the soil.

When the septic tank is maintained correctly, it can serve your home well, generating all the wastewater from your home.

Preventative Steps to Take To Preserve Your Septic System

To keep your system from failing faster than normal, it is crucial that you not use more water than you absolutely have to since using too much water is one of the main reasons that septic systems fail in the first place. You will also want to avoid using additives since they will do more harm to your system than good.

Avoid paving over, driving over and parking on top of your septic system. If it is possible, try your best not to direct excess rainwater to the spot where your septic system is buried. Septic tank water navigates through laterals before draining through soil. If the ground is already wet where the septic tank water drains, there is a chance that the water will start to back up either into your system or your ground pool. Always ensure that yard drainage and downspouts are redirected to other locations on your lawn.

It is recommended that you install inspection ports and risers. Septic systems are buried, which makes them hard to thoroughly inspect for problems. It is easy to install a small inspection port so that you can check your system.

"Dail was incredible to come out and service our septic system on a Sunday afternoon. He did an incredible job only digging up a small area of the yard to pump out the septic tank. He cleaned, flushed, and pumped out our tank within an hour. There’s not a lot of people that do this work on a Sunday. He really came through for us. This allowed us not to miss any time away from work. We were fortunate enough to have this taken care of before the holidays. Thanks Dail for the incredible work!"

"Pumped my 1000 gal septic tank. Did a great job. Jarrett was very respectful of me and my property. He was very careful not to track red dirt from the hole on to my driveway! He cleaned up nicely when the job was done. Dale, the owner, was nice to deal with: very responsive and punctual."

"SC Cwas communicative, professional, and on-time. The two guys knew exactly what to do, and did it well. They cleaned our septic and put on a lid for us, while answering our questions and giving us helpful information. You could tell, they've done this a long time. Since we are new to the area, a neighbor recommended them, and I wouldn't hesitate recommending them either! "

"Luke and Jared were super professional! They found the problem quickly and remedied it accordingly. They were also very equipped to answer all of my questions about how the septic system works, as this is a brand new house and a septic system is foreign to me. Finally, the owner, Dail did a great job getting out to the house as quick as possible. Highly recommend!"

We have a newer home that needed its first septic check and pumping. Dail's team arrived within a day of my request. Unfortunately the builder had build the backfill 5 feet deep over the lid. Dail coordinated the digging, pumping and installation of a riser so we won't have to worry about future service needs. They were hard working and fast. Digging damage to the lawn was held to a minimum. We are very pleased.

They were prompt, courteous and efficient with performing the job.... we had made an emergency call late night prior to their arrival due to a back up...and they went above and beyond to fit us in the next morning! Turned out we had a large amount of waste that needed pumped that was clogging up our drain. They were also very informative as to the condition of our tank and a repair that had to be made to prevent future problems. Very happy with the work they did and would highly recommend.
