    My husband and I asked Doug to inspect two homes for us and we would hire him for a third if we needed it. Doug is professional, he knows what he’s doing, he works FOR YOU. He explains what he sees throughout the inspection and helps you grasp what you’re looking at and for during the most stressful time of your life

    A++ The whole experience was 100% professional. The office was great to talk to, answered all my questions and was able to book me for the following day. They gave me a window in which they would arrive and they were right on time. The driver gave a call when he was on his way and did a great job. I couldn't have asked for a smoother transaction

  • Village Septic Service
    5.0
    When our plumbing backed up and wouldn't drain the plumber we called advised us that the first thing we should do was get our septic pumped. The only business that responded to our calls was Village Septic. They recommended we locate the tank ourselves to keep the cost down, but after digging holes all over the back yard and not finding it (neither did a metal detector) we were stumped. We pleaded with them to come back and find it for us, so they followed the pipe from the house and were able to successfully find and empty the tank. It turned out that some of the pipe was old collapsed orangeburg from the 50's and included a sharp bend so we were advised to replace the line with more gently curving PVC, which we did. This part of the job took longer to complete but once our plumbing was working, which was taken care of promptly, we did not care. By the time the job was done our plumbing was working, new pipe installed, and the soil put neatly back in place. Village Septic will definitely be our go-to folks if we have trouble in the future

    They are punctual, efficient and friendly. They usually come the day I call or soon thereafter. We were having other electric work done recently and the electrician couldn't figure out what circuit the septic was on. Mumford sent someone right over and figured it out--for no fee! I wish every company I dealt with was so high quality. (They also put in the septic system before we bought the house and it has been fine.

    Everything went well. Price was less than originally quoted due to tank size being smaller than we thought

  • Dubuc Excavating Co.
    5.0
    Evan and Jeff Debuc were amazing. From a technical standpoint, they identified and ordered all the components, inched a digging machine down a treacherous hill, dug up the old cesspool, dealt with another one that was hidden nearby, installed the new tank, piped it up to the dispersion field (which they created in a day) and kept us calm every step of the way. Given the choice of doing this project with some other contractor or selling the house, we would have sold. These guys are wonderful

    Dave was prompt, professional and courteous. Gave us a thorough assessment of our system and made recommendations. We never felt that he was trying to sell us anything, but rather that he was giving us his professional assessment for us to use going forward.

    They were fantastic. They are a local company. They were here within few hours of my called. They took care of the problem and explained what they did. They also told me what to do to prevent the problem in the future. The quality of their service was excellent. I rate them high overall.

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.
