    David was prompt, professional and determined to do the job right! Our basement was taking in water so the service was urgent. He worked very hard in the rain and he remained pleasant.

    I recently had my sewer line tap in done by TNT excavating. They completed the project just as they had scheduled it, leaving my property in excellent shape. The quote they gave was very reasonable and they even did more than I had originally contracted. I would highly recommend them for any

    We solicited bids from a three contractors for converting a garage to an apartment for an elderly retiring pastor. Keeping costs down, while maintaining a beautiful result was essential. Milo's bid was over what we wanted to spend, but the lowest of the three. He agreed to take on the project and

    I had a hot water tank ruin my finished basement. I was lucky to get ahold of Milo the same morning and by the afternoon they had demo'd the entire basement and already started the process to get reimbursed from my insurance company. Milo was a huge help in getting my basement restored correctly

    What really impressed me about Bowman was that right before his first visit, he called ahead to let me know that traffic was going to delay him. We've used him a lot in the last year. He's fixed standard leaks, part of our sprinkler system and basic repairs all over the house. He's even helped me

  • Hapchuk Inc
    Everything was excellent. I was dealing with local people, which is why I was in need of someone else. Everyone else seemed to be overcharging. I talked to the owner on the initial phone call, which I thought was nice. It's impressive to have a boss answer his own phone. He spent about 20-25

  • Hapchuk Inc
    This is the second time we have called Hapchuk Sanitation. Both times, he came out the day that he was called. Ours was an emergency situation because it was ready to back into the house. He also recommended to us that we get our pump fixed; something he does not do. We really like his service - he

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.
