Install & Repair Septic Lines

Donaven’s Septic and Plumbing has been in the business since 2003 serving the Metro Atlanta area in Georgia, and is a company you can rely on when you need to install and repair septic lines for your home or workplace. To know more about our services, we have outlined basic information when it comes to installing and repairing septic lines in any residential, commercial, or industrial property.

The Septic System

Homes that are not part of the municipal sewage system use the septic system. This system is the method of treatment and disposal of waste from homes. Typically, it only has two sections, a septic tank and absorption area. Absorption areas are also known as drain fields or leach fields.

Types of Septic Systems

The Conventional System is the most common type of system that can be found in most homes with a septic tank. Conventional Systems usually have a chamber system. Older Conventional Systems still use the gravel-filled tank or drain field. These systems use the natural way to filter wastewater exiting from the septic tank.

These systems are more expensive compared to other commonly used ones. The idea here is to evaporate the treated wastewater from the drain field into the air. Therefore, wastewater won’t come in contact with the soil and groundwater.

In situations where gravity makes it impossible for wastewater to exit the septic tank, the Low-Pressure Dose System is used. When the elevation of the septic tank is higher than that of the house, a low-pressure pump is needed to push wastewater out into the drain field.

Aerobic Wastewater Treatment Systems are required in homes which are much closer to bodies of water. And also when the water table of the location is too high. The purpose here is to prevent contamination by wastewater effluent.

Moreover, aerobic septic systems are ideal for homes where the lot is too small to fit the drain field. These septic systems are just smaller versions of the Municipal Sewage Plant.

With the different septic systems available, it is best to contact Donaven’s to advise which one is best for your property. 

Whichever system is installed on your property, it helps to know that over the years, maintenance and repairs will be needed. Here are the signs that tell your septic system is failing.

Septic System Installation Facts

The process to install and repair septic lines can be a bit complicated. If not done properly, a septic system installation will lead to never-ending repairs. In addition, it can also lead to water pollution which could contaminate the drinking water in your area.

There are other factors to consider in regards to the cost of a septic system installation. Some of these factors include installation charges, tank material, tank size, permitting requirements, and soil conditions.

Homeowners need to consult the local health department about permits, inspections, and environmental testing.

The cost of a septic tank will depend on the type and its size. Concrete septic tanks cost more than plastic septic tanks.

Signs of problems with Septic Systems

To prevent further damage to your septic systems and from greater cost on repairs — you must take action immediately as soon as you see signs of septic system failure.

How to know when your septic system is failing

Here are 5 signs to look out for:

You simply can’t miss and ignore this one. If that foul smell seeps from your septic tank, contact Donaven’s Septic and Plumbing Service immediately.

Have you noticed puddles on the drain field or on the ground where your septic tank is buried, but it didn’t rain the day before? This is an indication that there is something wrong with the drain field, or your septic tank is not properly draining wastewater.

If you are unsuccessful in unclogging your kitchen sink, bathtub, and toilet after seeing water backing up – this is a sign that there’s something wrong with your septic system.

Don’t ignore the gurgling sound you hear after you’ve flushed the toilet, or after the running water in the kitchen sink. That annoying sound is an indication that your property’s septic system needs to be checked. 

Uneven patches of lush green grass near the area where your tank is buried, or on the drain field area, indicates that nutrients from wastewater are acting as fertilizers. This only means that there is wastewater backup from your septic system. 

If you notice any of the signs above, contact us immediately.
