    went flawless! 👍 They helped me to find my tank because of their experience in system design. I had remembered it being in a very different spot. 😀

  • A-1 Pumping Inc
    Rob, the driver, was better than on-time, he was early. That was our first indicator about this company. He was extremely patient with all of our questions. He was courteous and professional as he explained everything he was doing and why he was doing it. My mother, an 83 year old widow remarked on

    They were the only ones who would come out on the same day. They were also the cheapest company out there. Very nice guys who work very hard.
  • A-1 Pumping Inc
    Rob was very professional and always had an up and positive attitude. Easy to deal with. He arrived at the agreed on time and cleaned the tank. Another employee delivered the concrete riser I purchased in order to bring the tank's drain opening to grade level. Rob removed this 350 pound riser

    Neilson & Sons was so punctual to our initial estimate meeting and on the date of service. The whole group worked efficiently through the whole time and got the job done couple of hours earlier than promised. Since the work was done early, Mr. Neilson actually decreased his charges.

    Shane did a fantastic job. I spoke to him on Sunday and he gave me some good guidance. He arrived on time Monday and explained to me what he was going to do.

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.
