The Holidays Toll on Your Septic Tank

The holiday season is a time of fun, celebration, and family gatherings. However, your septic tank might be taking a toll amidst the festivities. At Septic Service Pro in Cumming, GA, we understand that the increased usage during the holidays can put a strain on your septic system.

Let’s explore how the holiday season impacts your septic tank and how our services can help ensure a smooth and worry-free celebration.


One of the main challenges during the holidays is the surge in houseguests. Whether it’s friends, family, or both, an influx of people means increased water usage and wastewater production. This increase can overwhelm your septic system, leading to potential issues like slow drains, backups, or even system failure.

We recommend scheduling a pre-holiday septic inspection at Septic Service Pro to ensure that your system is in optimal condition before the festivities begin.

Family Holiday Meals

During the holiday season, it’s common for households to host elaborate meals and gatherings. From cooking large feasts to accommodating overnight guests, the strain on your septic system intensifies. Grease, food scraps, additional wastewater from showers, and extra laundry can contribute to clogs and reduced system efficiency.

Our professional septic services include thorough pumping and cleaning, which can alleviate the added stress on your septic tank, ensuring it operates efficiently throughout the holiday season.

Outdoor Holiday Decorations

Outdoor holiday decorations, particularly in colder climates, can also impact your septic system. Decorative lights and inflatable displays often require additional power sources, leading to the use of extension cords. If these cords cross over your septic tank or drain field, they can cause damage when the ground freezes.

Septic Service Pro can assess the impact of your outdoor decorations on your system and recommend adjustments to prevent any potential issues.

Freezing Ground

Furthermore, with colder temperatures during the holidays, the freezing and thawing of the ground can affect your septic system. Frozen soil can prevent proper drainage, leading to backups and sluggish performance.

Our team at Septic Service Pro is equipped to handle winter-related septic issues, from thawing frozen pipes to addressing drainage concerns.

Septic Service Pro


Based on 117 reviews

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!!!!!
