Recent Septic Tank Service Reviews in Augusta
- Benjamin Franklin PlumbingIt went very well. The guys also gave us a bid on helping us with our Septic line to the house, including digging it up. Awesome job. They cleaned up very nicely too. We will be using them to finish our bathroom to connect the sink/toilet and shower. The price included septic and roughin with a military discount of 10%
- Burnley Sanitary Sewer & DrainI have nothing but positive things to say about Burnley Sanitary Sewer & Drain. I first called at 12 pm and Tony (the owner) answered the phone. He explained the ins and outs of the sewer system in addition he let me know what to look out for if I decided to let someone else pump the sewer tank. After getting off of the phone with him, I felt more confident in making a decision. I call another company and they actually priced me a little cheaper price however I decided not to go with them and go with my gut feeling. I called Burnley Sanitary Sewer & Drain back at 1 pm and spoke with his wife (Susan). After some small chat and laughter, she scheduled an appointment for me and contacted one of their crews that was on another job. Within 30 minutes, I received a call to let me know they were on the way. The crew members were awesome after all they were "Devil Dogs" and we had stories to talk about. By 3:30 pm, the gunked up sewer tank had been pumped and I was back at work. I could not ask for a better experience or quicker turnaround about something I had no clue about. I would strongly recommend giving Burnley Sanitary Sewer & Drain a call
- Addie's Septic TankOur septic tank backed up into our house in Nov 2010, and unfortunately, we started to have the same problem again, yesterday. We called a plumber, who came and diagnosed our septic tank as having a blockage, again, so we called Addie's. The tech, David, responded, and we were again pumped, another blockage removed, and it was discovered our septic tank lid had broken, so he brought another one. Great Service, and the price had not increased since we used them in November 2010
- Anderson Plumbing CoAnderson Plumbing was very quick and professional they came out found the problem and provided quick and excellent service
- WILLIAMS SEWER & DRAIN, INC.They were here when they said they would be. They were friendly and professional and knew what they were doing. They performed the services quickly and explained everything they had to do and why.
- WILLIAMS SEWER & DRAIN, INC.The guys that came out were polite, professional, and helpful, answering all questions I had. They did a decent job finding and then digging up the septic tank access. Damage to the yard was minimal under the circumstances (we only had a general idea where the tank was). Will definitely use them again
- WILLIAMS SEWER & DRAIN, INC.I called 4 companies to bid the job. 2 were apparently so busy they did not need the business since they never even returned the call. 2 companies came to bid the job and Scott was the only one that crawled under the house, got his nice shirt dirty, and came up with a solution that would cost me less money than the other company that bid the job. Scott was there when he said he would be, he personally talked to each business around me since he had some heavy equipment that would need to be in their parking lot. His team was there early and they did a great job. This may seem like a small thing, but they all had logo'd shirts on, so I knew they were part of his crew. He ran into a few issues as they were doing the job and kept me well informed. He had to break apart a sidewalk that we did not think would have to be removed, but because of a giant root ball underground, it became necessary. I now had a problem with a missing piece of concrete and the work was being done on the playground at my daycare. Scott saw the look of panic on my face when I thought my playground may have to be shut down for days. He was able to give me a name of someone who could help, and he was there first thing the next morning. They did a great job cleaning the area after they were done. They even rolled back my expensive eco grass and when I walked into the area, you would have never known I had the entire place torn up just hours ago. Scott stopped back by the next day to ensure the concrete was being poured and I was taken care of. The concrete was NOT part of his job, and I had already paid him, so in my book the extra customer service I received was beyond what I expected. Service is VERY important to me, and quite frankly I find it almost non-existent in our world today. I was very pleased with the whole experience, and anyone that can make a septic tank problem a pleasant one is doing a pretty good job. I would highly recommend them
- WILLIAMS SEWER & DRAIN, INC.Background: I live in a subdivision where the builder was limited to providing septic systems to all the houses. I have owned my house for 8 years, during this time I have had septic problems for 6. First my drain field failed, I increased the field by 100 feet. Then one of the diffusers was crushed, I dug it up and poured concrete over it to seal it. Then a year ago my field stopped perking and started pushing sewage to the surface in multiple locations. At the same time, Columbia County installed a new sewer line in my neighbor hood. The sewer line ran along an existing creek. If you were lucky enough (I was not) to be on the same side of the creek as the sewer line then you could attach. I petitioned the county to allow me to cross the creek to no avail. I finally was given permission from the county to cross the creek; however, outside of any county easements. Williams Sewer and Drain performed outstandingly! Scott Williams the owner personally spent two hours with me prior to writing up an estimate. He then painstakingly worked with the county to allow me to enter the easement along the roadway, so I did not have to enter my neighbors property. His team of professionals dug a 500 foot trench, installed 4inch pipe and re-worked the plumbing under my house. This all took three days to do. Surprisingly, Williams only interrupted my water flow for a couple of hours. They reseeded my yard, filled the septic tank with concrete and provided a me a walk through of everything they did.The company was very professional, they stuck to the estimate, and provided very responsive answers to my questions. This was a massive undertaking. They proved that they were not only up to the task, Williams exceeded my expectations through the entire project. Job Well Done
- Burnley Sanitary Sewer & DrainMr. Burnley and his crew were on time and were finished in a half day. He kept me informed of all the work that was being done. I would recommend his firm for septic and sewer repairs.
- Burnley Sanitary Sewer & DrainSecond time I've used them. Came out same day. Called because of the nonstop rains we had had for weeks on end. They even pumped the tank and came back later to pump out more of the rain water that was filling it back up so my drainage field would dry out a little. I will never use anyone else!

Septic Tank Service FAQ
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
