    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

    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

    Amazing! We have city water and sewer but since the problem was on our property the city would not do anything. Jim came out dug up the line and found that the person that installed the line did not seal it correctly so a tree roots and grown inside and caused the water back up. He replaced the

    Bill and son assisted in locating the tank, spent hours searching for the tank at no cost to me. Tony followed up the next day with the truck and clean the tank.

    The work went well. Zach from Burrows showed up earl for the appointment. I pretty much knew where the septic tank was located and I helped Zach dig out the lid, which wasn't to deep. Zach pumped the tank down and I helped by spraying the inside with water to help the process. So this was a pretty

    These guys were great. Parents had never had tank pumped so no one knew where it was. They used a camera to find it. Then cleaned and inspected. Very professional and friendly

    The reason I called them was because they had done the service for the previous owner. However, they still charged $40 extra to locate the tank; Other than that, the price was in line with other providers in the area They were timely and neat.

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.
