Recent Septic Tank Service Reviews in Coal City

    Everything went well, he said exactly what he was going to do, the bill was exactly what he said it was going to be, he sent pictures to show the update as we live very far away from the project that was being done. When he said he was going to be there, he was there. Great experience.

  • James Backhoe Service, Inc
    We went with James Backhoe because they were the one company out of 4 that actually had someone to answer the phone! We did receive calls from two others and one other estimate for service, but James Backhoe was the lowest cost and fastest to respond to all our questions.When deciding when to have

    Experience went very well. I explained that I could not be on-site the day of service, and that I would leave access to the tank lid for them. They had no problems with this whatsoever, and they did not even want a deposit. They came and pumped out the tank, and sent a bill in the mail. The amount

    The guy traveled almost 40 miles (80 round trip) and arrived right on time. He used a camera, snaked through the sewer line to find the break. Unfortunately the break was under the concrete garage floor. When he was done he marked the floor when the break was at and I did the excavation and repair

  • Grundy County Septic & Sewer
    This was a huge job - I was impressed with how they were very punctual and how they took their time to fully explain every detail. They explained why this large of a replacement was needed versus alternatives, they gave me a breakdown of costs right away, they were very nice and courteous. They set

    Dave was extremely helpful in diagnosing our sewer problem. He came out the same day as I called. He first rodded our line. That didn't open it up. He came back and jetted our line. That didn't work either because the problem was on the city's main line. We decided to dig to find the problem and he

  • Frank's Septic Tank Services
    Kent (dba Frank's) has pumped our septic tank four times over the past ten years. He is always consciences about where he drives / parks the truck to minimize ruts in the yard. Kent pumps all the solids out of the tank, which is a lot more physical work than other "honey pumpers" are willing to do.

    Dye test showed water to septic tank going to sump for ground seepage in basement. Called Vapor Viper and they ran vid cam thru line and found the break. This narrowed the repair area to a 2 square foot area ( rather than digging 60 ft to expose break - part of which was under concrete) saving many

  • Harrelson Plumbing & Heating, Inc.
    I called Harrelson's and left a voicemail that this was not an emergency, but I wanted to be put on the schedule for the next Monday. They called back fairly quickly and said someone would be out first thing Monday morning. He came and snaked the clean out.

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.
