Cold winter months can bring on a different set of problems. Ice dams on roofs, frozen septic systems, and frozen or burst pipes. At Northland Septic, we can help you with any of those problems. 

  • Ice Dams
  • Frozen Septic Systems
  • Frozen and Burst Pipes

Ice dams are formed as snow melts on the roof, turns to water and comes in contact with a cold roof edge or gutter. Ice can then work its way under shingles, causing damage to your roof, leaking into your home, ruining walls, ceilings and causing mold. 

Keep your system from freezing:

Frozen Septic or Pipes - Placing a layer of mulch, straw or leaves over pipes and septic tank can help prevent your system from freezing. This can be caused by many different circumstances but most common is cold weather with little or no snow cover.


This is the septic maintenance people you want. These men are highly trained and knowledgeable in every aspect of taking care of our sewer systems. We had our sewer pumped by Lee a few weeks ago, and I didn’t think there was a more courteous, super-hard-working person out there yet. Also knowledgeable about every aspect of sewers. He worked so hard on our sewer [at] my folk’s place before they passed on, and [I] don’t think it ever got pumped. It was scary to see it so full of hard sludge and that had to be broke down to get the job done; with every care, Lee got the job done. We sure can appreciate a person that goes the extra mile and got the job done the right way!! Thanks, Lee and Northland for having a hard-working group of people working for you!!! We now have a permanent company to take care of our sewer. Thanks again!!
