Welcome to our website!

My name is Chuck Pounds and my family has been in this business for four generations. My grandfather, Hershel Pounds began installing septic tanks in Mississippi in the early 1950's, before moving to Covington Louisiana, where he and my father Charles continued to install septic systems for many years.

In 1997, I started Pounds Sewer Systems. We install sewer treatment plant systems and septic tanks in MS and LA. We have actually upgraded many septic tanks to sewer treatment plant systems in and around the Covington area that my grandfather and or my father installed in years past.

With the help of my wife Robin and our two sons, Lee and Woodrow we continue to maintain our family owned and family operated business. Licensed and insured in both LA and MS we travel to meet the needs of our customers in both areas. Providing quality installation, service and repair of residential and commercial sewer treatment plant systems and septic tanks. Replacing effluent lines, aerators, sump pumps, & spray irrigation pumps for the systems we are licensed to maintain. We have installed many commercial systems for churches and businesses in both areas. Working with many area contractors.

For new construction systems or environmental upgrades call us or send us an e-mail. In LA it is required you obtain a permit from the office of public health prior to installing any system. In MS Marion County has a law requiring the property owner to obtain a soil test prior to sewer installation. We suggest you call the Health Department in your area prior to making any plans for septic or sewer treatment plant installation.

We take great pride in all our business and we want our customers to be happy with their choice in our company and refer us to all their friends, neighbors and colleagues. Call the local health department in your area and ask about Pounds Sewer Systems. Please go to our Facebook page and write a review and like our page.
