Transou's Forsyth Septic Tank Service can design and install all types of septic systems, including mound systems, drip irrigation and modified mound systems.

These systems meet or exceed EPA standards for commercial properties and Department of Health regulations for residential properties.  They can also design and install no-dig trenchless systems.

"Septic tanks" are what homeowners or home buyers think of when buying/maintaining a home with a private septic system, but it is actually the whole septic system that Transou’s is concerned with – since the drain field or leach field makes up half of a typical septic system cost.  Septic tank care and septic tank cleaning need to be done on a regular basis to avoid ruining the drain field.

Did you know about 25% of the U.S. population relies on decentralized – or onsite – waste water treatment systems? About 95% of the onsite waste water disposal systems are septic tank systems.

If you own a septic system, it is important that it be properly maintained.  As a homeowner, you must pump the solids out of your septic tank regularly.  The frequency of this depends on three major factors:

1. The number of people in your household
2. The amount of waste water generated (based on how many people are in the household and the amount of water used)
3. The volume of solids in the waste water (e.g., using a garbage disposal will increase the amount of solids)

Although your septic tank absorption field generally does not require maintenance, the following rules will help protect and prolong its function:

1. Do not drive cars, trucks, or heavy equipment over the absorption field.
2. Do not plant trees or shrubbery in the field area because the roots can grow into the lines.
3. Do not pave over the absorption field with concrete or asphalt. Grass is the best cover.
4. Divert surface runoff water away from the absorption field.
