Recent Septic Tank Service Reviews in Salida

    We were very pleased with all aspects of D. A. Parrish & Sons work. They visited the job site twice so that they could provide an accurate (no charge) quote, and they also pulled a county permit. They arrived on time with the necessary heavy equipment, very competently performed the contracted

  • C & C Septic & Portable Toilet
    Grover went way above my expectations of service. My tank had not been pumped in at least sixteen years and Mr. Hunt said it was the biggest tank that he had ever seen on a residential system. Would recommend him to anyone in the area.

    We had a ruptured water pipe in an interior wall. Chief came out as soon as we called. We have never had a plumber out and I was nervous that we would have a BIG hole in our sheetrock where the wall would need to be cut out for access. Their representative located the approximate location of the

  • Morton Septic Backhoe & Drilling
    We had gotten their name from a contractor who had used them. We liked everything about them. They were very clean and picked up everything after themselves; they did not leave mounds of dirt around any place. We did not compare their price with anybody else but we thought they were pretty

    We had a toilet back up and because we are on a septic system it ended up backing up into our bathtub. We called a plumber and when he got here and checked he said we needed to get our septic tank pumped before he could clean the clog. We called Parrish and they were able to get some one out within
    Great. They found my tank quickly and were able to pump it out within 45 minutes. They had to take out a couple fence boards to get to the tank, but put them back there they were. Guys were pleasant and informative as this is the first time I have had a septic tank cleaned out.

    We called and got an estimate that was unbelievably low. Day One: The next morning, the owner shows up before sunrise. He unloads a brand new tractor that he'd just bought and we then talked while it warmed up. Then his vacuum truck arrived (A-1 Septic Service is the same company) and the old tank

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.
