    Phenomenal work from these guys! Performed all tasks we needed with great customer service and met deadlines with time to spare! From rerouting rainwater away from the house to relocating our septic drain field for the coy pond installation, they got it all done exactly how we imagined! Thank you

  • Cottrell & Co., Inc.
    Every time someone came out, they were very friendly and professional. The only complaint I'd share is that when they drained the septic tank, they did so into the yard! Because it was on an incline, the sewage was draining through the yard and into the lake. The neighbors complained of the smell

    I cannot say enough about this group. Our installer was wonderful and very professional. This was a big job and they made sure to do a very thorough job and clean up after themselves. The job took a little bit longer than originally planned but they were upfront about this and it did not

    Water would not exit the house. We checked the septic tank ourselves and found it full. It had been pumped a year earlier so we assumed the drain field was clogged. We called Taylors and they had Steven come to check it out. He looked over everything and asked some questions. He said given the age

  • CE Taylor & Son Inc
    The plumbers told me that my septic system is filled. I need to have it pumped. I have no water to my house. This is the 6th call I have made and this man answered the phone. He was very kind and explained he was leaving today at noon. He could get to me on Saturday and it would cost 350 dollars.

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.
