  • Plummer's Waste Group
    The drains in the house were not working. Brandon came out, opened and pumped the septic. He also vacuumed out the plugged line from the house to the tank which took care of the problem. All of this was completed within 24 hours of calling. The price was better than the competition as well. Very pleased with this company and will use their services again in the future

  • Busscher's Septic Tank & Excavating Service, Inc
    It was a difficult job and they had to dig up the openings. The service was very professional and he installed receivers at a very good price so digging would not be an issue in the future. Their front office staff is very responsive, the service was excellent. I would give them my highest recommendation

    Texted us to notify us they were on there way. Took about an hour overall to complete.. which included cleaning up his area where his equipment was. Price was inexpensive. Gentleman answered our questions to the best of his ability and directed us to who to talk to on things he wasnt sure. Overall, it was a very good experience on our first time emptying the tank

    We were provided detailed description of work to be performed - arrived in the morning, excavated and caved collapsed tank, dug and installed replacement tank, after health department approval, returned same day, and backfilled everything. Cleaned up after themselves. Very satisfied.

    When I called they were very pleasant. They looked up the address and found that they had the exact location recorded from the previous homeowners, so finding the tank was simple and only left a minimal mark in the yard.

    The service went great. I called and they were able to come out in less than a week. As it was our 1st time having a tank emptied, the service provider was very helpful in answering questions and giving advice for maintenance. Thankfully they kept records of the exact location from previous owners, that kept the affect on the lawn pretty minimal

  • Plummer's Waste Group
    The process went very smoothly, the appropriate permits were obtained and inspections performed in a timely manner The new septic tanks function just fine and I had risers installed as well. The only problem I ran into is that I received very short notice when they were coming to install the new tanks (received a phone call very early in the morning that they would be there bright and early that same day). Luckily I was already planning on being at home that day. Otherwise, no complaints

  • Dial Septic Tanks Svc Inc
    Thank you for doing a good job conscientiously, on time and at a reasonable price. Also, thanks for informing me of the option to reuse some of the dirt rather than simply hauling all of it away and charging me for an entire new load. Best Regards, Vladimir.

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.
