What You Need to Know Before Calling a Local Emergency Septic Service

Septic tanks are a vital part of your home or business, but they can also be dangerous if not maintained properly.ย 

Most people don’t know when to call a local emergency septic service and why you need them. We’ve created this guide to help you understand the importance of calling one for any issue that you have with your tank.

Our experts have compiled some helpful information below about how to tell if it’s time to contact an emergency septic service, what they can do for you, and tips on how to prevent issues in the future so that your system will last longer and run more smoothly!

Signs of a septic system emergency

Signs that you may have an issue with your home’s sewage disposal unit are smells coming from drains and toilets. When wastewater backs-up through plumbing lines it will often cause overflows into homes’ basements which contaminate flooring and surfaces within contact zones due to percolation after sitting for some time; this is especially true when showers/toilets remain unused during such times leading to stagnation of waste material inside these fixtures without adequate disinfection methods available before flushing them out as well as leaving behind unpleasant odor buildup on any area(s) touched by overflow liquid while waiting for new incoming flows.ย 

A septic system is something that every home needs, but it can be difficult to maintain and care for. If you notice these signs of a problem with your system, then contact a professional company right away! Not only will they fix the issue quickly so things return back to normal; they may even find an underlying cause which could have been playing havoc on homeowners’ lives if not found sooner.

Cost for pumping and other services available from a professional company

The cost for septic pumping can range from $150 to more than $2,000. That is a lot of money that will be necessary in order to keep your house safe and clean!

The price tag on having your home’s sewage tank pumped out varies considerably based off the type of system you have installed as well as how old it may be.

So the next time you’re looking for a way keep your house safe and clean, consider septic pumping. A little bit of upkeep will go a long way in maintaining your home’s plumbing system and keeping costs down over the years.

If we neglect our pipes they can get clogged up with grease buildup or other things that don’t belong there (like toilet paper). If this happens, it could lead to expensive repairs like replacing an entire section of pipe! Be proactive about maintenance by hiring someone who knows what she is doing – check out SC Septic today!

What you can do to avoid future problems with your septic system

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, right? Well that’s true for your septic tank too! These are some important steps to prevent problems. First and foremost, don’t flush anything down the toilet but human waste (and paper products) or use any bar soap in your dishwasher as these may be caustic enough to destroy an entire system if they leak out into the soil around it. The most common mistake people make is not disposing diapers correctly by soaking them with water first so their solid wastes will disintegrate when placed on top of wet vegetation versus being washed directly into ground water which can contaminate drinking supplies miles downstream from where you live.

How often you should have your tank pumped, what to do if it's not working properly, and more!

You should pump your septic tank every 3-5 years because this is how often it needs to be done for the best performance. Septic tanks are a system of piping and tanks that remove wastewater from homes without using sewer systems, which can lead to pipe clogs. If you’re not cleaning out these pipes correctly on time, wastes will overflow into public waterways or infiltrate groundwater supplies making them unsafe for consumption in many cases!

We have over 20 years of experience under our belts so there’s no doubt about their expertise or understanding what it takes if something does go wrong with your system!ย

"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. Thereโ€™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.
