What is a Septic System?
Septic systems are underground wastewater treatment structures that collect, treat, and dispose of sewage from rural and suburban homes and businesses. Septic systems are a permanent solution to wastewater produced in the bathroom, kitchen, and laundry. These highly efficient, self-contained, and economical structures include a septic tank and drainfield.
Buried in the ground outside the home or business, the septic tank is a watertight container designed with a liquid capacity based on number of bedrooms. As solids settle down to the bottom, liquid wastewater, better known as effluent, exits the tank into the drain field. The drainfield is a shallow series of trenches delivering treated wastewater to the soil. Effluent flows through the perforated pipes in the trenches onto porous surfaces allowing the wastewater to percolate through the soil. The soil treats wastewater for harmful bacteria and chemicals.
At Myers Septic Service, we provide professional installation and thorough maintenance to ensure your septic system is working properly.
Oftentimes, people call Myers Septic Services for a septic tank/system inspection when they’re buying a new house or building in the Rowan County region. Homeowners can increase the life of their septic system and avoid costly repairs by conducting regular septic tank cleanings. New home buyers and real estate developers can count on us to ensure the integrity of the existing septic tank system with a complete septic system inspection. Septic inspections aren’t just for people buying places– they’re also done by any property owner who wants or needs to know what’s happening with their wastewater.
Preventative care is better than reactive care, but unexpected issues can happen with your septic system despite proper maintenance, design, and construction. If you are experiencing septic troubles, including waste water backing up into your home’s pipes or foul-smelling pools of water in your yard, allow Myers Septic to assess and repair quickly. Our experienced professionals can diagnose the problem – big or small.
Excessive water use, poor maintenance, and the improper use of the septic tank can cause your septic system to fail. Prevent the worst-case scenario by limiting what you put down your drains (i.e. chemicals, paint, oil, and other such substances), conserving water, and calling Myers Septic for proper maintenance and repairs.
With proper septic tank maintenance, your home’s overall septic system should be in good working condition with a long-life span.
Grease Trap Servicing
Myers Septic can dependably and professionally vacuum, pump, and haul the liquid waste and sludge from a number of liquid waste receptacles. Myers Septic Service is the preferred commercial grease trap servicing provider in Rowan and surrounding counties. Whether your business needs servicing every week, once a month, or quarterly, we are your trusted source for commercial grease trap servicing. We service several hotels, hospitals, restaurants, daycares, local colleges, and schools.
Grease traps in particular are important to keep functioning, especially if you run a restaurant or a business that requires heavy use of the kitchen. A grease trap will contain animal fats and vegetable oils in kitchen wastewater that flow through your plumbing system before they reach sanitary sewer lines. Myers Septic grease trap cleaning service thoroughly pumps your grease trap, eliminating the odor and safety problems associated with poorly maintained grease traps. This thorough cleaning means you’ll need your grease trap pumped less often, and there’s no accumulation of old grease, which can cause unpleasant odors.

Grinder & Sewage Pump Services
Myers Septic Services offers emergency and non-emergency grinder pump repair and replacement. Sewage pumps are designed to move waste water from one component to another. A sewage pump can come in many applications, from grinder pumps located in a basement to effluent pumps located in your septic pump tank.
Myers Septic Services can upgrade your Grinder Pump to get it back in service as quick as possible with the reliability that you expect. We stand behind every rebuild or repair with our 100% workmanship guarantee.
Most pumps come equipped with an alarm or flashing light to indicate pump failure. Typically, a sewage pump has a warrantied life of 3 years but many pumps can last up to 10+ years! If you hear an alarm, don’t hesitate to call us quickly to prevent any problems before they occur. If you are unsure if your sewage pump has an alarm, we can also help retrofit the existing system to alert you before a problem arises.
