    Septic system on house we wanted to purchase failed inspection. Went ahead with the purchase and needed septic system up and running by 6/8/09.

    Nick, the owner of the company, came out to initially pump the tank. When he had uncovered it, he found an opening cover that was shattered and replace poorly by the last company that had pumped the tank. He dug further and found several cracks in the cement and that the baffle had collapsed. He

    We called to have our septic tank pumped and were told we didn?t need the service. We appreciate the honesty. Most companies wouldn?t tell you the truth and would charge you for the service even if you didn?t need it.

    Very professional and thorough. New Milford Septic even found us a drain professional that pinpointed the source of our septic backup. Of course, we will use them for all of our septic service needs.

    My experience was mixed. While I am confident he installed a good septic system, it was not what I expected. I hired a designer as required by the health department who was sensitive to the aesthetic outcome of the project. While Mellen Septic installed a functual system, it was not true to the

    I used New Milford Septic for years and thought they were ok-until my septic system was inspected. The baffle on my tank had broken off years ago and they never told us about the needed repair when they pumped our tank. I wonder if their guys are the ones that damaged the baffle - it's not like

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.
