Recent Septic Tank Service Reviews in Omaha

    First, Backlund Plumbing has emergency services after 6 pm, so my recommendation is that they be scheduled during the week. However, they were good about coming out a little after 5 and the serviceman showed up a little early and did not mind waiting till I showed 10 mins later. I was very impressed with their professionalism and the way the plumber happily walked me through the process, gave me useful and unprompted information and was altogether pleasant and knowledgeable. The quality of the service was good and, while a scoping is not a major effort, friends of mine also agree they are the best around. Certainly, from talking with the guy who came out, I would be very willing to call them for any other problems I have. As for the actual scoping, they scoped the line, showed me the video while explaining what we were seeing, and copied the video to one of our computers so that we had a copy of the scoping for future use

  • Great Plains Septic & Aeration
    He was great. Answered all my questions, was clearly very knowledge, performed many tests on the septic/plumbing to conclude that everything was OK. He took time to explain what to do and not to do with a septic system, how often they should be serviced. I will use Great Plains again.

    They have always done a good job for us. The company is pretty prompt and efficient. The prices are pretty reasonable; in fact I think it is about the cheapest we have found. The plumber has always been good about cleaning up any mess that he might cause.

    I have had Jiffy Jet pump the septic tank last year and work on several slow drains. When I called, I was surprised to know that someone would be arriving within the hour. The drain specialist arrived first and within a short time cleared the shower drain and cleaned up the work area. Before he was completed, the septic pump crew had arrived and promptly performed their job. Within an 1 1/2 hour from my phone call, the work was completed

    Went well. There were a couple of times when they had to postpone the work due to having to deal with other emergencies, but they always called and re-scheduled. They did a great job of cleaning up after the job was completed.

    We have used Jiffy Jet a couple of times before and have been very happy with their service. They are always very nice on the phone and the gentleman that came out to the house was very nice and very informative. He answered questions we had and gave us maintenance tips. We will definitely use them in the future

    Was told someone would show up between 8&9 on Wednesday, two men showed up at 9:20. Not sure what they even did, because we didnt want to supervise them doing their job. They left food wrappers and sewage on our basement floor. They left around 1:30 and said they would be back between 3 &5 with different equipment. My husband had to leave, so I had to leave my job early to be home by 3. A totally different plumber showed up around 5:20. He mentioned he had to come from a town very far away because that's where he was working that day. That's completely okay, but a phone call saying after 5 would have been nice, so I didn't have to take off work for no reason. He cleaned the pipes and apologized for the previous workers leaving a mess and cleaned it up for them. The toilet has stopped bubbling, but the basement is still leaking. He said he forgot a locator and would be back Friday around 5 to find the problem. He never showed or called. He seemed like a very nice person just trying to make a living like the rest of us. But I am very disappointed with the punctuality and lack of communication from this company, and the fact that the job was not completed. Will be calling another company from now on

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.
