    We had prior work done that covered one or the other aspect but had not encountered a firm that could do the entire job and be sure that everything was right in the end. A to Z's name says it all, They are both plumbers and septic system specialists and were able to solve our issues by dealing with the entire system

    We recently used Plumber Mike’s for our sewer hookup. I cannot say enough positive things about our experience from the first visit to the completion of the project, Mike and his team were great. The work was done quickly once he got the permits. I would gladly recommend Plumber Mike’s to anyone that needs the services of a plumber

    No problems. The job took from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. I had two toilets backing up and that could not flush. After Thomas fixed the sewer line, the problem was gone.

    Bo Robert removed the old traditional tank water heater and provided me an estimate for the purchase and installation of a new tankless water heater. After the new electric circuit panel was installed, Mat installed the new Stiebel Eletron Plus tankless water heater. Both plumbers were professional and courteous and kept the area clean after the work was completed. The work was started on time and promptly completed to full satisfaction. The new tankless water heater heats the water well throughout our house with three baths. I plan to use their service again when a another plumbing need arises in the future

    Shaun was professional, kept things clean, did not rush. He gave us advice on ongoing maintenance on drains with septic tanks. Best of all, he noticed a problem with the PVC plumbing, and was forthcoming to fix it permanently to get better water flow. Appointment was made and he came out same day. Prices are reasonable and accurately quoted

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.
