  • William Farley Septic Service
    5.0
    Everything that could go wrong with this sale (of our house) DID!!! Bill Farley was the wonderful exception. He is a maestro of the excavator. 100% recommend. Our Buyer's agent failed the system (Presby) as it is an advanced system, and they did not understand it. This was Bill's first call-back on a septic system. He came and met with another inspector, and explained the advanced features of our system, and videoscoped the system with the inspectors. It then passed a 2 hour hydrostatic test. Bill stayed the entire time. If you're still reading. Since our original system was installed (1984), parts of our property are now considered wetlands. Bill was able to deal with Town, County and State Red Tape, and had all variances approved and certified as well! I'm sorry, but I can't help myself, Bill Farley is #1 in a #2 business

    Excellent. They responded to my call immediately, set up a time... on the same day of the call. The tech... Alex called before he was to arrive (on time!) He was courteous, professional, cleaned up the area he was working in. Alex got the job done quickly. I have used Able Tex before to clean the drains. Always responsive, courteous the BEST! A+. Won't use any other company for this kind of work

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.
