On March 8, the Dawson County Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting ceremony for North Georgia-based company Inspector Septic, a family-owned septic company aimed at bringing the best services at the most fair prices possible to its customers. 

This story continues below.

Inspector Septic is a vacuum truck service company based out of the North Georgia area. The business specializes in drain field installations and repairs, septic tank installations, septic tank pumping, septic system inspections, septic dose pumps, lift station maintenance and repair and commercial septic system installation. 

The company can also undertake land preparation, grading and clearing to enable a perfect septic system install. 

According to Inspector Septic owner Timothy Ethridge, his company is based fully on serving its customers with fairness, integrity and great pricing. 

“I don’t rip people off. I’m flat rate pricing and I keep my word; if I tell you it’s going to be one price, that’s what it’ll be,” Ethridge said. 

Ethridge first started Inspector Septic back in 2018 and began by doing home inspection letters, then ventured into drain fields before getting a pump truck. Now, he serves much of the North Georgia area and can do any septic tank service his customers need. 

“I do residential and commercial pumping, I do installs, repairs, anything you can do to a septic tank I can do it; I’m licensed and insured for it,” Ethridge said. “I’m glad to be working in Dawson County and I hope y’all enjoy having us around.” 

“And that’s pretty much it; I’m an old turd burglar,” he added, laughing along with the attendees at the ribbon cutting ceremony. 

Before cutting the ribbon, Dawson County Chamber of Commerce president and CEO Mandy Power welcomed Ethridge to the chamber and the community, expressing her excitement at having another true small business in the area. 

“We’re very excited to celebrate a true small business here in Dawson County; small businesses are truly the heart of our community and our chamber, so [one of] our favorite things to do is celebrate our small businesses,” Power said.

In addition to Dawson County, Inspector Septic serves Forsyth, Hall, Fulton, Dekalb, Gwinnett and Habersham. For more information, go to
