Mound Septic System Information Atlanta GA

A mound septic system is an alternate to conventional units and is typically only used when the traditional counterparts are not an option. At Atlanta Septic Tank Pros, our partner technicians are routinely called upon to help homeowners and business owners handle their tricky septic needs, including planning, designing, and installing on-site wastewater treatment facilities when Mother Nature doesn’t want to cooperate.

How a Mound Septic System is Different

For the most part, this type of unit is very similar to a traditional one, but conventional units discharge the effluent (water from the tank) into an underground leach field. With this method, the bacteria in the soil finishes purifying the effluent before it reaches the water table. When a mound septic system is in use, the effluent is pumped to a man-made hill, which is typically built of gravel and sand, with a layer of soil on top.

Why You May Need or Have a Mound Septic System

There are three main reasons why this alternative unit may be proposed:

  1. When water isn’t absorbed by the soil well. During the initial planning stages, the soil on the property will undergo a percolation or perc test. During the test, the technician measures the rate at which the soil absorbs water. If it drains too fast or too slow, the effluent will not have time to be purified before it reaches the water table or it may sit on the surface too long, posing a health risk.
  2. When the ground has porous bedrock with inadequate soil on top. Some sites have bedrock buried beneath the soil, which can allow the effluent a direct path to the water table. Therefore, it can easily contaminate drinking water.
  3. When the water table is high. Again, if the water table is high, the soil won’t have time to purify the effluent before it reaches the water.

Mound Septic System Installation

Knowing when an alternative style of unit is appropriate is key to keeping you and your family safe and healthy. Our partner technicians perform numerous tests to ensure the right unit is selected for your needs and property requirements. They also handle all the planning, permits, and the actual installation, so you can rest easy knowing that your unit will be built to code, in a safe and expeditious manner.

Mound Septic System Maintenance and Inspections

Like any other kind of unit, these need routine pumping, too. Most tanks require it every 3-5 years,  but you may need to be on a more frequent schedule if you use a garbage disposal or have other appliances that add to the load. Our partner technicians work quickly during these routine visits, so you can get on with your day fast, but they also take the time to inspect the unit and ensure it’s operating properly and has no signs of damage or wear.

Very Affordable

They easily figured out what's wrong and they told me they could fix it right away. They were so friendly and were able to keep me calm as they resolved this issue. I will be calling them again in the next couple of years to have it maintained. I really felt that this was one of my best decisions. I am thankful.
