Septic Line Services in Chapel Hill, NC by Bud Matthews Services

Most homes in America will rely one one of two systems to remove waste materials: A Civic waste system or a septic tank. An underground septic tank gathers wastewater from the home and lets it sit for a time, separating solids from liquids. The liquid wastewater is then pumped out into a drain field, where it can safely fertilize the nearby plant life. (The solid material remains in the tank until a trained technician can pump it.)

That process relies upon septic lines to do the job, and when they run into trouble, you can count on us to step in and handle it for you. We have the experience required to correct any septic line problem that can occur.  We also handle installation and maintenance services. We can also replace your septic line if needed. If you suspect a problem with your septic line, then pick up the phone and give us a call today!

Contact Bud Matthews Services to treat septic line problems in Chapel Hill, NC.


The same aspects that hold true with septic line repairs hold true with the installation. If the technician determines that a replacement line is needed, he can do so without having to dig up your yard, so you can then plan for the operation with the information you need to make proper preparations. The installation will go more smoothly, saving time and money while still ensuring that the process is entirely successful.


Septic lines experience all the problems you might expect from a standard plumbing line, however, the issues ten to be compounded because the lines lie underground. Waste can clog the pipes, damage from shifting soil or corrosion can cause it to spring leaks, and even tree roots – drawn to the nutrients of the waste – can wrap themselves around the pipe and create all kinds of problems. It’s slightly easier dealing with such issues in North Carolina than it is farther north because our soil doesn’t freeze, but even so, the expense of digging up an underground pipe can be extremely, to say the least.


The good news is that’s no longer the case, thanks to modern equipment. We can go into the pipe itself using small video cameras to pinpoint the exact nature of the problem. This allows us to go straight to the problem area to fix it. That means that what started out as an expensive fishing expedition now becomes an efficient and accurate operation. Not only does this cut down on expenses, but it ensures that your septic line problems are appropriately treated and that whatever the problem is, it will be fixed the right way, the first time.


A septic line issue is nothing for an amateur to tangle with. You need a plumbing service with the experience to treat the problem accurately, and the skill to ensure that once it’s fixed, it stays that way. You can count on us to handle septic line services of all varieties. With our team in your corner, you can rest assured knowing that you have the very best on your side and that whatever issue you’re having will be gone by the time we’re done. Don’t trust a serious problem like a septic line breach or clog to just any service. Contact us today to take care of the issue the right way!
