Grease Trap Installation

What is a grease trap? A grease trap can be part of your septic tank system. It helps to catch greasy materials that would otherwise clog up your drain pipes. Grease traps are more closely associated with commercial buildings, particularly restaurants because of the large amount of grease that comes with serving food. However, a grease trap installation is also beneficial to any residence, and here’s why. When you think of a grease trap, you think of bacon grease or used oil, right? It’s not just limited to that. Other materials that will fall into a grease trap include soap, bath oils, and lotions and other substances beside food. Continue reading “Let Us Hook You Up with Grease Trap Installation” »

Septic Tank Installation

When you hear the words “septic tank,” it’s rarely followed with any positive emotion. The most you’ll get is “ewww!” or a disgusted look. Septic tanks, however, are just as important to residences or commercial buildings as air conditioning and heating, possibly more. It’s part of the wonderful feature we call “indoor plumbing.” All of that waste has to go somewhere, and that’s where the septic tank comes in. It runs your waste through a treatment process before releasing the treated residue into the ground through pipes. Continue reading “Call Us for Septic Tank Installation Today!” »

What Do Septic Companies Service? A Quick Guide

Septic Services LakelandPosted bySeptic Services LakelandFebruary 13th, 2017

SepticWhen you hear the work “septic”, you may be thinking of your septic tank, your home’s drain pipes, a grease trap at a restaurant, or a lift station as part of a residential septic system. And, in truth, all of these things are right. So, what exactly do septic companies service, and when do you need to call for professional help? We’ve provided a quick guide to answer this question:

  1. Septic Tanks – This may seem like the most obvious answer because septic companies often provide septic tank pumping and installation for both homes and businesses.
  2. Drain Fields – The drain field is the system which safely allows grey water to filter back into the ground and is an essential part of a septic system’s efficiency and effectiveness.
  3. Grease Traps – Often found in commercial facilities, grease traps are important for efficient operations. Septic companies can assist with maintenance, repair, or installation of these devices.
  4. Sump Pumps – Sump pumps are another item that septic companies can assist with at both homes and businesses.
  5. Risers – Risers allow access for pump-outs and septic system maintenance. Sometimes absent from older septic systems, they are fairly commonplace today.
  6. Effluent Filters – Effluent filters block solid waste from filtering out of the tank and into the water that is moving away from the home. These serve an important function as part of a septic system.
  7. Lift Stations – Lift stations help to move wastewater from a low-lying area to higher ground where it is then processed normally.
  8. Real Estate – Septic companies will also often provide real estate septic inspections to ensure potential buyers that their future home’s septic system is in good condition.
  9. Drains – The drains inside your home or business carry wastewater to the septic tank before it is processed by your drain field. Keeping your drains in good condition is important!
  10. Maintenance – And, of course, septic companies also provide routine maintenance and servicing, so a septic system remains in good shape year after year.

It is important to note that some septic companies only service residential areas, others only commercial system, and some septic companies do both. So, with this list of septic terms and equipment, they may be found in residential, commercial, or both types of septic systems. At Southeastern Septic LLC, we provide all of these services in Lakeland! Contact us today to learn more!

Do I Need Sump Pump Replacement? These Are Good Indicators That You Do.

Septic Services LakelandPosted bySeptic Services LakelandFebruary 13th, 2017

Sump Pump ReplacementIf your home or business has a sump pump, you may have greater peace of mind knowing that you have an added layer of protection if there were ever a flooding event in your area. But, just like many other equipment and appliances in our homes or businesses in Lakeland, your sump pump also needs proper care and maintenance. So, how do you know if you need sump pump replacement to ensure that your property is protected? Here are a few indicators:

  1. Age – There are many different models and types of sump pumps, and some of the older ones simply aren’t as effective at pumping water out of your home should the occasion arise. If your sump pump is antiquated, then you may be disappointed when it doesn’t really do the job when you need it most, and sump pump replacement may be your best bet.
  2. Operation – There are varying degrees of a malfunctioning sump pump, including long run times, turning off and on frequently, making lots of noise, or not turning on at all when it should have been activated. If you notice any of these warning signs, it’s possible that a simple repair may fix the problem, but you may also want to consider sump pump replacement to avoid long-term repair costs.
  3. Capacity – If you notice that your sump pump is designed for a smaller home or space, you may find that it can’t adequately protect your home during a flooding event. Having sump pump replacement with the proper size for your space will ideally produce better results.

 If you aren’t sure about the age, operation, or capacity of your sump pump, then give us a call at Southeastern Septic LLC, and we’ll be happy to assist you! We have over a decade of experience providing services to our customers in Lakeland, and we’ll be happy to help you achieve greater peace of mind, should you need sump pump replacement.
