  • Brian's Septic Service
    Great!!! Brian kept me informed continually throughout the process. He and his crew were professional, knowledgeable, prompt, and polite. More importantly, he did not try to sell me something I did not need, and to the contrary, he steered me away from more expensive work. I highly recommend him and his team

    Brian's service was top notch from the office staff to the technicians who worked on our septic tanks (2 on property). One tank needed to be located. These guys were prompt, courteous, skilled, and very fast. The price was less than we expected. We look forward to their helping us with future maintenance

    Everything went very well. The company responded the next day after I called and was able to rearrange some scheduling so they could come that day. John and Keith were personable, professional, and knowledgeable. They did a good job while answering all my questions so I could understand what was going on. I would recommend the company and John and Keith without hesitation

  • Brian's Septic Service
    - [ ] If ever in need of a septic tank pump out or drainfill installation or repair you can't a more honest or fair person than Brian. Brian's septic service is the company I highly recommend. Brian is very professional , and efficient . After having to have my tank pumped , found out I was having issues with tree roots killing my drainfill line. Brian came out and explained to me in great detail what needed to be done to repair and fix the problem.,and quoted me a extremely fair price on what the job would cost. After agreeing to use their service he scheduled me and even came out days earlier than the scheduled ,which made me a happy camper. All the crew that done me a super nice job were were very courteous and professional thanks so much guys! Alan Tillma

    Went fine. They have long hose which we required so that truck could remain in driveway and not drive on ground. Old lid fell in tank and they replaced with new plastic lid.

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.
