    Aaron with Mudcow did A great job and was very informative and friendly. He replaced the ball valve on my septic septic system and brought the system up to code in several areas. Great job!

    We've used Excalibur on three occasions and, without exception, the results have been excellent. My only continuing concern is with the cost of services. Excalibur responded to my call in a timely fashion and Louie came out and quickly diagnosed the problem and gave us options for both repair and replacement. Since the unit was 10 years old we elected to go the replacement route. All work was completed in just a few hours and was done with considerable attention to detail. Louie was very professional and answered all my questions about the sewage pump and associated equipment as well as questions about our water softener. This is a first-rate plumbing company and, again, my only hesitation to give A marks across the board is the cost consideration

    I hate being over a barrel when it comes to home plumbing repair and that was the case here... Without a working sewage grinder we could not use any toilets or run water anywhere in the house. As you can imagine you can't go long living like that. The initial fee to LOOK at the sewage grinder was $399 to START. I should have said no & done more research at that point but I was foolishly optimistic & said to start. Once they determined I needed a new grinder all I got was a squirrely cost estimate of $3,500-$4,500. That's a pretty big swing. In the end the total ended up being $4,190 (originally $4,250). I think that I overpaid by $750-$1k although I can't be sure.... Pro: it got done fast Con: Probably overpaid by 20-25% Overall I might use them again but only after I got competitive quotes so I don't feel like I am over a barrel again while making a big decision on a huge $$ repair

  • Aloha Septic
    5.0
    Service was very profession and thorough . Compared other vendors and Aloha was the most responsive to my call and was slightly cheaper for the same service without nickel and dimming the cost for the service . I strongly recommend this family owned and operated business.

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.
