    It went very well. They were fast, knowledgeable, friendly, and very helpful. I actually had a repeat issue a few days later and they came back out and cleared my main sewer line again at no charge.

  • Mr Rooter Plumbing of Lehigh Valley
    The guys tried to determine if a full septic tank was causing our backup, which would have been cheaper than snaking. The septic lid couldn't be found under several feet of snow, though. Upon rooting the drain, it was determined the blockage was caused by tree roots in the drain line. They reamed

    This is at least the second time that we have used Barbosa. When Steve showed up on time I recognized him from the first time. Just as before, he was kind and polite.

    I accidently spoke to 2 different companies, thinking it was one company. Their names were very similar so I got it confused. The second company showed up shortly after, but this company already started and removed the cap. I felt terrible for the mix up and called the company to discuss it. I will

    We recently had a tank alarm go off which alerted us that there was a problem with the septic mound system. I called Barbosa around 8:30 am and they came out to the property within a couple of hours. Our technician's name was Mike. He was very informative. He diagnosed the problem quickly and

    From beginning to end, the service was great. When I called the office to schedule service, they were responsive and immediately setup an appointment for the same week. The serviceman, Steve, arrived right on time with no issues. During the service, Steve made himself available to address any

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.
