Recent Septic Tank Service Reviews in Madison

    Phone answered promptly and appointments were available with in a few days. Driver called day of service to give a more specific time of arrival. (It was not necessary for me to have been home for this service.) Arrived on time and was able to navigate a difficult entrance to my property. Completed work quickly. Charges were flat fee of $150 (would be more if my system had a filter). I was offered the option of paying the driver or being billed. Driver was polite, friendly, reported condition of my system to me verbally and will send written report to County

    Glenn pumped our septic tank. Was very knowledgeable and helped track down some information about the system as well. Will definitely use again in the future.

    They maintain and inspect my system regularly and file required county inspection reports. The one time I had a problem (sewage backing up) of course it was on Christmas Eve day several years back...when I got home from work and discovered this, it was already dinner time. They answered the phone and the man (owner?) sounded almost apologetic that they were just leaving for family dinner and church - he asked if it would be possible for me to wait until morning but if not he would come as soon as he could manage. I live alone so it ws possible. He came early on a very cold Christmas Day, figured out the problem almost right away and fixed it. I still remember and am grateful for such service. :>

    They called me back and let me know what they advised. They told me I could get by with just an inspection. Based on the consideration he gave me I would say they are considerate of the customer.

    We received our notice from the county for our septic tank to be pumped/flushed. Kalscheur Septic Services had been referred to us. They did a great job and also took care of notifying the county once it was complete.

    I called them and let them know that I need the service as soon as possible. They was able to perform the service 1 day after the phone call. I'm satisfied with how the service was performed, reasonable price. They also reported the service to the government office managing the septic systems on time

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.
