  • Clean Earth Septic Service
    This service provider is absolutely the best. Very professional, very quick and reliable. I have had him out a few times at the last house I sold and my new residence (for regular service and an emergency). He is absolutely great.

  • Clean Earth Septic Service
    We had our septic system pumped and cleaned. The Clean Earth team arrived 10 minutes early, were very kind even in a rain storm, and finished in 30 minutes. We had called other companies for estimates and were quoted more than $100 more than Clean Earth charged. We will call them again next time!

  • Clean Earth Septic Service
    Levi returned my call in the evening, which I appreciated. He was prompt (actually a few minutes early), efficient and very polite. He suggested I close my garage door so that the "perfume" wouldn't waft in while they were pumping.

  • Clean Earth Septic Service
    Levy Carling is a local guy providing prompt and professional service at a reasonable rate. He is smart enough to have already secured the permits for taking septic waste to a number of regional wastewater treatment plants. That's why he was able to come out and takeover the job that Drain Brain

  • Clean Earth Septic Service
    I called Levi on a Saturday because we were down to 1 toilet for 6 people. The downstairs toilet had suddenly started gurgling on Thursday night. Internet research said it was a clog, so I called Roto Rooter Friday morning. To their credit, they came out that afternoon, but did not locate the clog.

    They are here whenever I need them. If I don't have the money at the time they told me to wait they would send me a bill that I can pay later. You really don't find too many companies that will do that for you now a days. I would give them A's across the board. I really like the customer service

    Sheesley's Sewer Service provided prompt and professional service. Our 1,000 gallon septic tank was pumped for $235. And there was a $15 truck charge. We would use them again.

    They identified the sewer problem and fixed it. They also checked my septic tank. I called my septic service and they came right 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.
