Septic Tank Pumping Services near Birmingham & McCalla AL
In areas where city sewer is not available, and where soil conditions permit, septic systems are installed to manage waste water collection. Pro Services installs underground piping, tanks, pumps, and grinders where necessary to build healthy, functioning septic tank and grease trap systems. Many of the smaller communities across Central Alabama, including Bessemer, Hoover, McCalla, Birmingham, and Alabaster, have homes that are primarily served by septic systems.
We service underground systems, pumps and grinders, and provide septic tank pumping on a regular schedule or as needed. We also offer grease trap pumping services.
The process to clean a grease trap on a septic tank includes:
- Either pumping the liquid out of the tank using hoses or scooping it out by hand.
- Scraping the sides of any buildup.
- Removing any solids from the bottom.
- Washing the trap of all grease and liquids.
For more information, or to have your grease trap cleaned, contact Pro Services online today! One of our friendly professional team members will be in touch with you promptly.
Your grease trap is overflowing because it is full and needs to be pumped out and cleaned. There could also be a clog somewhere is the line to your septic tank. Contact Pro Services online today for quick and reliable grease trap pumping and cleaning services. We also offer 24/7 emergency services if needed.
Grease traps and interceptors both operate in pretty much the same way. The main difference between a grease trap and a grease interceptor is the flow rate of wastewater that each can handle. A grease trap works well with a lower flow volume while an interceptor was made with heavier flow volumes in mind.
- Grease traps – Less than 50 gallons of grease per minute.
- Grease interceptors – More than 50 gallons of grease per minute.
Grease interceptors are typically found in busy restaurants and grocery stores.

Septic System Installation
Septic systems are usually composed of a holding tank and a drainage field, installed in soils that pass a perch test – meaning that the soils will support the drainage necessary to filter and clean water released from the septic system holding tank. Septic systems can work with gravity flows, but where that isn’t possible a pump is also required.
Septic Tank Pumping
Although most waste will biodegrade and eventually filter out through the porous piping to the surrounding soils where it is filtered, septic tanks will accumulate some waste that cannot be eliminated in this way. Septic tanks do need to be pumped out occasionally. We provide septic pumping services, either on a regular basis or as needed.
Septic Pump & Piping Repair
Septic piping can be damaged by heavy equipment, installation of a storage building, play equipment, roots from surrounding trees, or other unusual activities in the area. When that happens, a system can fail. We will repair or replace lines and pumps when you need them.
Septic Tank Service
In some systems, algae blooms may require additional servicing. We handle all your septic service needs.
