    I recently moved into an older house (1967) and have spent quite a lot on repairs already. I was worried about my septic system since neighbors told me that previous owners had had serious problems with it--and I found info on the the Permits site of our county that troubled me. The septic field had been saturated several times, and there were deteriorating drainage pipes running down toward the septic field that needed repair/replacement. So I called All Pros to assess. Christopher took his time to explain how the system worked, looked at the old records and figured out a better way to handle the drainage problems. They put in a new tank, and found a better way of handling drainage from my gutters by sending water down my driveway to the street instead of into the septic field. Christopher and Brandon worked very hard all day--even moving and leveling my chicken coop (heavy!!) to enable the new drainage pups to run through. They finished the job, it works, it was reasonably priced and I am happy

    This family-owned company is fantastic, from the people answering the phone to the service technicians. They were able to work us into their schedule quickly, they called on the day of service to confirm our appointment, and the two men who came to our home—Jerry & Kris—we’re great. Both were super professional, efficient, respectful and very friendly. It was an excellent experience all around and we recommend them highly! Many thanks

    Major project. Heavy equipment required. Very respectful of the surrounding landscape. Kept me advised as the project progressed. Told me it would be completed that day. Stayed until 7:00 p.m.to finish. If needed I would call them again for any project.

    All About Plumbing must embrace the ‘Culture of Excellence’ based on my experience today (Christmas Eve). With a family of ten in an old house equipped with 1925 septic system and toilet backups... I called AAP around 8:45am with an appeal for help. The nice lady said they were very busy but could fit me in in afternoon. They called to say Kyle would be here at 2pm and he rolled in right on time. He assessed the situation, got the roots out of the sewer pipe and all is well. They were professional, told me what they were going to do.... and they did it. That is what I call EXCELLENCE

    We were extremely pleased with the way Appalachian Earthworx handled our job. The jobsite was very tiny and a challenge, but they did a remarkable job and went above what was asked of them. I would highly recommend them with no hesitation.

    I've been using All About Plumbing & Septic for years and have not one complaint. Always on time, courteous (they put on the booties even when I tell them they don't have to), free estimates, great communication. Over the past 6 years, they have helped us with a septic issue, replaced the water heater, crimped a pipe that was leaking, replaced a faucet, among other things

Septic Tank Service FAQ

  1. What are the signs your septic tank is full?

    Answer: There are several signs that indicate your septic tank could be full. These include standing water over your septic tank, a strong odor coming from your yard, gurgling water, slow drains, or a sewage backup. While many of these signs could also be indicative of a clogged system, they should all be checked out by a professional ASAP to avoid costly damages. In the absence of any of these signs, it’s recommended that septic tanks be emptied every 3 to 5 years on average.

  2. How often should a septic tank be serviced?

    Answer: On average, septic tanks should be serviced every 3 to 5 years in the absence of any worrying signs that the tank is clogged or full. The size of your septic tank, the number of people living in your home, and your average water usage will all impact how often your septic tank needs to be serviced.

  3. What are the most common causes of septic tank failure?

    Answer: The most common cause of septic tank failure is improper maintenance. Failing to pump a septic tank on the appropriate schedule will cause septic tank failure and likely result in a costly septic tank repair or replacement. On average, septic tanks should be pumped every 3 to 5 years, but the size of your tank, the number of people in your home, and your average water usage may shorten or extend this timeframe.

  4. How much does it cost to pump a septic tank?

    Answer: The cost to pump a septic tank is $400 on average or about $0.30 per gallon. The size of your septic tank, as well as local labor costs, will impact the cost of pumping your septic tank. Most septic tanks are between 600 and 2,000 gallons in size, meaning the average cost range is between $180 to $600.

  5. How much does it cost to install a septic system?

    Answer: The cost to install a septic tank system is between $3,060 and $9,810, on average. The size of the septic tank you choose, the land you’re installing it on, the type of system you choose, and local labor costs will all influence the total cost of installing a septic system. Anaerobic septic tanks (those that don’t need oxygen) typically cost between $3,000 and $8,000. Aerobic systems, which utilize oxygen to activate bacteria and are popular on smaller properties, usually cost between $10,000 and $20,000.

  6. How long does a septic system last?

    Answer: When septic systems are well maintained, they can last up to 30 years or more. If a septic system isn’t properly maintained, such as when it isn’t pumped regularly, it may malfunction and require costly repairs or a premature replacement. In general, septic tank pumping is recommended every 3 to 5 years to ensure the septic system lasts as long as possible.
