— Infiltrator systems are designed to safeguard our environment for future generations.
Conventional leach fields use perforated plastic pipes laid in a twelve inch gravel bed. It is not a stretch of the imagination to envision those small holes clogging faster than a three foot wide chamber. That’s why we only sell the best!
Infiltrator® chamber leach fields are high-density polyethylene arches that interlock to form a continuous drainage area with a much greater storage (“surge”) volume than conventional perforated pipe leach fields. Installation simply involves digging a series of three foot wide trenches connecting the Infiltrator chambers and then backfilling with the soil you originally removed. No gravel is needed, but adding gravel above and below your chambers is always an upgrade to aid percolation in poor soils.
If you have slow moving drains in your home, it may be time to have your sewer line inspected and cleaned. The expert plumbers at Absolute Septic Tank Service can inspect and clean your sewer line.
The most common causes for a blocked or sluggish sewer line:
- Tree roots
- Excessive rainfall
- Buildup of grease, hair, soap scum and other waste
- Broken or leaky pipes
- Improper installation of sewer lines
- Sewer system over capacity for current use
The main sewer line is the biggest drain in your home, with all other drains from your bathrooms, kitchen and laundry room flowing into it. An annual inspection and cleanout (if necessary) can prevent the damage created when a sewer line backs up into your household drains. One of our experienced technicians can perform this service at a reasonable cost. Your technician will review your sewer line and report any causes for concern about the health of your sewer system, and present options for maintenance and repair of any problems that might lead to a sewer line blockage.
Raw sewage backed up through the drains in your house can be a horrible experience. Taking the necessary steps in prevention and maintenance can help keep this messy, destructive experience from happening to you.
Wastewater flows through small lines on your property to the larger, county lines in the street. This in turn travels to your city/county wastewater management system for reclamation. In order for this process to flow smoothly, each branch of the system must be working properly. If there is a blockage in your line, the disruption of flow can cause the sewage to run back into your home through the drains at the lowest point in your house.A blockage can occur for any number of reasons, disposal of diapers, sanitary napkins, kitchen grease and root intrusion are the most likely sources.
If a back up occurs: Call Absolute Emergency Service – 770-402-2481 immediately to have a technician on their way to assist.
