    Kayla in the office was amazing. She tried to get us in as fast as possible. Jose was a pro when he showed up. He gave us all our options for repairs needed and let us know we still had a plug in the system. This company is amazing and I have recommended them to everyone I know that has a septic

    I've used this company twice - May 2017, and Sept 2022. I would not recommend using this company to repair your septic system unless either they installed it or you are very familiar with your own system. May 2017, high-level alarm on sand filter. Cause - burned out effluent pump. They replaced the

    We sold our home and a septic inspection was needed. A Affordable did both the inspection and some minor follow up service that was needed. In both cases they actually arrived earlier than scheduled (having called for permission each time), and their service was first rate. After the repairs we

    When the crew understood how concerned I was about the entire condition of the septic system, they took the time to explain to me every detail of what needed to be done, what they were doing at the time, and how the system would work with the pump when the project was completed. Every crew member

  • A & B Septic Service
    We had an overflowing septic tank that we had just had pumped by another service 4 months ago. Decided to give A and B a call because they cover all service areas, drain cleaning, septic pumping, and work on septic lines, distribution boxes and drain fields. We weren't sure of the problem and were

    Great....we were running 15 minutes late. By the time we arrived he had the tank pumped out and the repair completed. Todd was professional and willing to answer questions.

    We called Todd yesterday and he set an appointment for 10 AM this morning. At 9:05 AM we heard his truck and went out to greet him. We showed him where the septic tank was and he quickly uncovered the cleanout port (5 minutes). He opened the tank and set up to pump it to his truck. After pumping

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.
