If your home or business includes a septic tank, you need to care for the system properly if you expect it to last.

That means that spending a little bit of money now could save you a lot of money later.
At Express Septic, we offer a full range of services for both residential and commercial customers throughout the upstate South Carolina region. From emergency repairs and 24 hour service for failed systems to regularly scheduled cleaning and pumping, Express Septic can do it all.
Septic Tank Repair
No matter where you live or what kind of home or business you own, your septic system works hard every day. You probably do not spend much time thinking about your septic system, but when it breaks you will definitely pay attention.
A well maintained septic system can keep running for many years, but a lack of maintenance can cause serious problems like a buildup of bacteria and escess phosphorous and nitrogen in the water. If you think your septic system needs attention, there is no time to waste. Just call Express Septic for a thorough inspection of your system and any needed repairs.
It is not always easy to spot problems with your septic system, and the first signs of a breakdown can be subtle. You might see flooding or an accumulation of rainwater in spots that used to drain well. You might notice that the toilet and sink are draining slower than they used to, or hear gurgling sounds after flushing the toilet or pulling the plug on the sink. If you see any of these early warning signs, it is time to call Express Septic to have your septic system inspected and repaired. Just give us a call for all your septic system repair needs.
Septic Tank Pumping
Regular pumping of your septic system is critical, and Express Septic can help you with all your cleaning and pumping needs. If you cannot remember the last time you had your septic tank pumped, chances are it is long overdue.
Putting your septic tank pumping on a regular schedule is the best way to prevent problems down the line. But if you notice any of these symptoms between pumping sessions, it is time to give Express Septic a call:
- Water pooling in your yard, especially near the drain field
- Foul odors around the septic tank
- The backup of sewage in the toilet, bathtub or sink
- Slow drainage for your toilet or sink that does not improve with the use of drain cleaner
- Changes in the condition of the grass near the drain field
If you notice any of these issues, the time to act is now. Express Septic offers 24 hour service, so there is no need to wait.
Septic Tank Cleaning
Keeping your septic system clean is essential, but regular cleaning is something that many homeowners overlook. Cleaning and pumping are not the same thing, and even with regular pumping your septic system will benefit from a good cleaning.
Traditional septic tank pumping will remove the liquid and floating sludge and other solids, but the cleaning process takes the process a step further. Cleaning removes not only liquid and floating solids but also the compacted sludge that accumulates at the bottom of the tank. Even the best pumping cannot reach that accumulated sludge, but a good cleaning can.
At Express Septic, we are your septic system cleaning experts. Just give us a call today to schedule a thorough cleaning. Cleaning your septic system now could prevent premature breakdown and an expensive repair bill later.
