  • Broad Ripple Service Experts
    Excellent. Called on a Saturday afternoon and they showed up early evening. This had happened to me before so we took a quick look at the septic to confirm the same problem. Quickly cleared the plug and checked that everything worked fine. Very pleasant to deal with. Would highly recommend.

  • L.E. Isley & Sons, Inc.
    The quote that we were given was done by the same individuals that did the installation. They spend quite a bit of time figuring out what was needed for the job. Once they arrived for the install, they got right to work since they already knew what needed to be done. We could not be happier with

  • L.E. Isley & Sons, Inc.
    On a Saturday night we discovered our sump pump had failed and we had water building up in puddles in our basement. Isley plumbing guy was at our house putting in the new sump pump before we had even heard back from another highly graded Indy area plumbing service. I think he was done and had left,

    Nate is a very personal and knowledgeable service technician for Isley. After explaining the problem, he knew right where to look for the issue. Nate went outside to the clean-out and saw there was water seeping out after loosening the cap slightly, which told him it was in the tank. he removed the

    It went well. They had to open a cover in the yard and get a look into some lines that go underneath the property.

    Our experience with Lifestyle Group was and is excellent. From working with us to design what we needed within the financial parameters we put in place, to working hard to get us through some sticky and time-consuming permits to the actual construction process, Lifestyle was in regular contact with
    ED P.
    I had my dosing tank pump replaced by FISK a year and half ago for the price of $2,200 with them selling me the pump and them saying they would typically last 8-10 years. That pump has now quit working already and these pumps have a 3 year manufacturer warranty. FISK's response to me is that they

  • Roby's Plumbing
    This was a Sunday so I expected that finding someone to do the work would be difficult. Donovan called back within 15 minutes of my call the the emergency number and indicated what the charge would be and that there may be nothing he could do. He said he would be out in 20-30 minutes, which he was.

  • Roby's Plumbing
    Dave diagnosed the problem but unfortunately the needed repair was outside of Roby's line of work. Dave provided a recommendation of a company to do the work.

  • Roby's Plumbing
    They are fairly reasonable and they tell you their price ahead of time so if you don't want it you can deny it. Right now he is the only plumber I use.

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.
