  • Roto-Rooter Plumbing & Drain Services
    5.0
    Plumbing issue during the week became an urgent need on a Sunday. I called Zimmerman, who answered the phone right away. They referred me to their partner, Roto-Rooter, since my issue sounded like a clogged pipe. Zimmerman called me when they notified a technician and when that person was on their way. The technician, Steven, arrived in less than an hour and was AWESOME. Steven had excellent customer service, was professional, polite, knowledgeable and reassured me that my issue would be identified and solved rapidly, which immediately decreased my anxiety level, since I live alone and had never dealt with this before. He listened to my issues, quickly identified that a pipe was clogged and where the clog was, and in less than 1/2 hr. he had opened the system up. He answered all my questions, teaching me what to watch for, how the system works. He worked efficiently and didn't leave until he was sure that all was working properly. He took special care to keep everything clean, and disinfected as he finished. This was the 1st time I have needed such a service and I would not hesitate to call Zimmerman or Roto-Rooter the next time an issue arises. The whole experience was a positive one from the time I 1st called, which calmed me down during this crisis. Thank you

    It was a bit upsetting to find out the switch for the drain field was broken and had to be repaired but it had to be taken care of and they repaired it a few days after the septic tank was drained. We were happy with their service and recommend them.

    They were excellent and I would recommend them to anybody. They were here on time, they did exactly what they said they would do, and they did it for exactly what they said it would cost.

    That was really good. They were very good and very quick about it surprisingly because I thought it would take them hours to pump it out and it took them about one hour to get it all down to the bottom. The guy was very informative very much like the Nelson guy telling us exactly what needed to be done and how to prevent it from doing it again. It wasn't as much as I thought it was gonna be. He explained exactly what he was doing and how the septic tank was working and how we could keep it from clogging up in the future. I'd give them A for everything

    Staff was excellent. On the phone they were quick to answer questions, and tell us what the charges would be.When the service men arrived they were courteous and explained the issues with us. Then they performed the job, and cleaned up after themselves. My husband and I were very pleased with the service provided

  • Richards Sewer & Septic Service LLC

    He did a thorough job to make sure every thing was out of the tank. Much better than others in the past. He also started right away on digging out the old access cover even though he didn't have the new cover with him. He came back 2 days later and completed the job. Looks great when he got done.

    System was partially open after an inspection so I called Richard"s to see how soon they could come out and was able to schedule them for the next day. However it turned out they had time to fit us in yet that day on a return trip so our system only had to be exposed for part of a day. Great service

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.
