Ready to Solve Your Sewer Problems
Many homes are hooked up to a municipal sewer system, allowing homeowners to simply drain their bathtubs and flush their toilets while that waste and wastewater goes to a municipal treatment system.

The Many Functions of a Septic Tank
A septic tank basically works as a small-scale sewage treatment system.
A septic tank works as follows:
- Wastewater makes its way into the tank
- Wastewater is held there while solids settle to the bottom of the tank.
- The oils and grease in the wastewater rise to the top of the tank, forming the scum layer
- The wastewater, which is considerably clearer than when first entering the tank, then moves to a second chamber
- More settlement occurs
- The liquid eventually drains out into the septic drain
Installations & Replacements that You Can Count on
The installation of a septic tank is something that only a trained Nashville plumbing professional can handle. Not only must the tank be integrated into your system and your property with care, but it must also be sized to ensure that it will handle your needs successfully.
If you have an old septic tank that is ready to be changed out, we can handle your replacement without a problem. This is not something that will need to be done frequently, thankfully. In fact, properly installed and serviced septic tanks should last around 50 years or more! When the time does come, though, you can count on us to replace your system with the expertise that the job demands.
Maintenance & Repairs Done Right
Septic tanks depend upon anaerobic digestion in order to break down the waste in the tank. However, the waste that is not decomposed in this fashion is going to have to be manually removed from the tank. Having your septic tank emptied of accumulated sludge is a must, and you need to have a professional complete the task as needed. The frequency of this service will vary, but you should set up a routine maintenance schedule so that your plumbers can evaluate your system regularly.
Should you require any septic tank repairs, remember that time is truly of the essence. For obvious reasons, you do not want a leaking septic tank flooding your yard or your property.
