Emergency Septic System Services In Georgia

At One Way Septic, your health and safety are of the utmost importance to us, and when your septic system fails, it puts you, your family, your employees, and your patrons at risk. That said, while the EPA recommends that homeowners, business owners, and property owners have their septic tanks inspected, pumped, and cleaned every three to five years, we understand that this type of maintenance can sometimes fall by the wayside. In fact, improper maintenance is one of the main causes of septic system failures, which can cause terrific damage to homes, businesses, and properties of all types.


What Causes a Septic Backup?

Along with improper septic tank maintenance, there are numerous other factors that can cause a septic backup. These may include, but are not limited to:

  • Blocked Lines

  • Tree Roots Entangle/Penetrate the Lines

  • Damage to the Septic Tank Itself

  • Damaged or Faulty Septic Tank Components

  • Environmental Changes (Ground Shifting)

  • Severe Weather

  • Non-Flushable Solids

  • Improper/Inefficient Breakdown of Solid Waste

  • Garbage Disposals

  • Treating Septic Tank With Harsh Chemicals

  • Heavy Machinery Used During Construction Projects

  • Hydraulic Overloading
