Septic Tank Field Line Services in Atlanta, GA by Quick Action Plumbers
Homeowners without access to a municipal sewer system are reliant upon their septic systems for the hygienic, convenient disposal of waste from their homes. The septic tank separates the solid waste, or sludge, from the scum within the tank, and the treated water is then distributed to the leach field, where it drains into the earth. To complete this process successfully, your septic tank field lines must be in fine working condition. If, for any reason, this is not the case, you really must schedule your septic tank field line services with a trained professional immediately.
Because of the design of the septic system, and the way in which it handles the water that it treats, problems with your septic tank field lines can cause not only serious headaches for homeowners, but also serious property damage. The good news is that, should you encounter any such undesirable situation, the professional septic tank technicians on the Quick Action Plumbers team are here to help. Give us a call today, and we’ll have your septic tank field lines functioning perfectly again before long.

Signs of Trouble with Your Septic Tank Field Lines
While we sincerely hope that you will never encounter any operational problems with your septic tank field lines, the fact of the matter is that there is just no way in which to guarantee that this will be the case. With that in mind, it is important that you learn to spot the warning signs that there is a problem with your septic tank or the field lines which it relies upon in order to drain effluent from the tank. In truth, many of these warning signs are actually quite obvious.
If, for instance, you find that your yard in the leach field area is quite soggy, you may have a problem with your drain lines. If your septic system is backing up, you may also need to have your septic tank field lines serviced by a trained professional. As a general rule, you should always contact a professional plumber if your toilets or drains are backing up frequently, and certainly if you can smell the odor of sewage in or around your property. Whatever it may be that tips you off to the problem, your options are limited. Pick up the phone, and hire a professional to assess and resolve the issue.
Keeping Your Septic Tank Field Lines Operating Properly
Should you encounter problems with your septic tank field lines, know that our technicians can handle your septic tank field line repair or replacement services properly. Even so, it is obviously advisable that you take every step possible to avoid any such problems in the first place. There are a few ways in which you can go about doing so.
Because these lines may be quite close to the surface of your drain field, don’t drive heavy equipment around in that area. Also, avoid planting trees in the immediate vicinity of your septic tank field lines, as the roots may infiltrate the pipes and cause blockages or damage. Finally, remember to have your septic tank pumped as needed. Refer to your personal records for such matters. If your system is not pumped regularly enough, more solid waste from the tank may make its way to the field lines, clogging them up and preventing the successful drainage of effluent from the system.
