Recent Septic Tank Service Reviews in Indianapolis

  • Setser Septic Service
    I called on Thursday afternoon after a plumber friend diagnosed some issues we were having as being related to the septic tank needing attention. Someone actually answered when I called, and effectively communicated with me throughout the afternoon until they were able to pin down that they could be here the following morning. The gentleman that showed up discussed some potential issues and concerns with my husband so that we were fully up to speed

  • 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.
    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, 2hrs from the time we called

  • 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 the work that was performed and with the installers. They were friendly, professional, and very knowledgeable about the work that needed to be done. I would unequivocally use LE Isley for any future work that we need done

  • L.E. Isley & Sons, Inc.
    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 septic tank cover and found the main line clogged up. it was a quick fix for him and it solved my problem. From this service call, I would recommend L.E. Isley and use them in the future. The $20 Angie's List coupon was a bonus!

  • Roto-Rooter Plumbing & Water Cleanup
    After 5 months with a whole new sewer line placed from our house to the sewer line we are still having issues. Even this evening we called for help since they claim 24hrs 365 days a year. Spoke with call center 3 times, dispatch 3 times, and 2 supervisors. All promised help was on its way. After almost 6 hour of waiting on the technician, the supervisor calls to say the truck broke down so they can't send someone out until the morning

  • Augusta Underground Inc
    Very unresponsive ! I have tried for over 2 months to get an estimate. A representative came out promptly to look at the job, but since then, I have not been able to get an estimate. They do not return calls, and always have an excuse about why there is a delay. I had high hopes but had to give up.

  • Service Plus Heating Cooling Plumbing
    It went well. They had to open a cover in the yard and get a look into some lines that go underneath the property.

  • Knox Septic Sewer Service
    Jim knows his "stuff" and was very easy to work with from start to finish! We had another company out prior to Knox and they did about $1,200 worth of work to try and fix the high levels in our septic tank only for it to fail less than two weeks later. We then called Knox and wished that we would have done that from the beginning. Jim diagnosed our septic tank failure in less than 15 minutes by probing all around our yard. He was very up front and honest with us about timelines/costs and he and his team replaced our entire system in less than a week with no surprises along the way! Jim was always available for any questions that popped up before the big dig and his communication throughout was outstanding. We just had our final walkthrough yesterday and my husband and I both have a good understanding of how our new system works, what needs to be done to maintain it, and we also know that if any issues or concerns arise, Knox will be right there to help us through them! Highly recommend this company! Added Bonus: My 5 year old son LOVES construction vehicles and Jim and his crew were so kind and friendly towards him during every encounter. It made getting our entire yard dug up a little bit easier! Thanks guys

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.
