Is Your Septic System Supporting or Harming the Environment?

When people think of a septic tank going awry, they typically think of foul odors, slow running toilets, or even disgusting backups. While these most certainly occur, there is also a serious environmental risk involved when a septic tank fails to operate correctly.

In most situations, a septic system is more environmentally friendly than a public sewage system. With municipal sewage systems, harsh chemicals must be used to treat wastewater so that it is safe for discharge. Due to the process under which wastewater must go through, most experts agree that a properly working septic system is a better choice for the environment. However, a failing septic system can deliver untreated wastewater into the environment and cause its own set of problems. When untreated wastewater is released into areas that it is not intended to go, a host of complications can occur. If the contamination of groundwater happens through a failing septic system, the environment is negatively affected and there is a safety risk to nearby bodies of water – even to the threat of polluting drinking water.

In general, there are four leading causes of septic system failure:

  1. An overwhelmed septic system
  2. Damage to the septic system
  3. Faulty design or construction
  4. Improper maintenance

It takes the knowledge of a professional septic system expert to diagnose the cause of septic tank failure. Without an accurate diagnosis as to why your septic system is failing, the issue cannot be solved, and there will be a risk for the problem reoccurring in the future.

At Septic Service Pro, we understand the inner workings of septic systems. Preventing environmental and health risks associated with septic tank failure must involve proper septic tank maintenance and routine septic pumping. Whether you are concerned that your septic system is not working correctly or you need to have your septic tank pumped, contact Septic Service Pro today. We provide both residents and businesses with full-service septic tank pumping and septic tank cleaning in North Georgia.

Jim is a true professional who worked with me over months to identify and correct septic field problems. His positive attitude and helpful discussion in resolving issues is the best I found.


Mike and Shane came out and did an outstanding job on replacing our septic pump. Same day service - and they came out on a Friday evening! Mother's day would not have been very happy if they didn't save the day. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!


We had our septic tank pumped and baffle tee replaced. The guys were on time, respectful and quick. They cleaned up very well after the job and even fluffed our pine straw to perfection!! We'd recommend these guys without hesitation.


Michael and Shane did an awesome job. Had to pump the septic,install a new baffle tee and tail out line. Very little yard displaced. Will definitely use Septic Service Pro again. Very pleased.


We live in Dawsonville. The crew that came out was very professional. The company owner explained to me the value and the many details about the septic that I did not know, that is why I chose them in the first place. Excellent service. R.McGary


Jim and his crew installed a new leech field for us quickly and professionally at a very reasonable cost. They handled all of the permitting and inspections and completed the work in a timely manner. Would recommend them to anyone.


Michael and assistant pointed out a leaking toilet that I didn't know I had (saved me $ there!). They also disturbed very little of the yard to get to the tank. Not the super cheapest but no hard upsell when they got here. Very pleased.


The team was efficient, friendly, knowledgeable and FAST to arrive. The bill was extremely reasonable for the work needed to be done. I would HIGHLY recommend Septic Service Pro.


These guys were amazing. Jim and Mike came when they said they would, did the job, explained everything they did. Very courteous,and professional. I am a handicapped person and felt extremely comfortable with them at my home. Thank you!!!!!
