    The repairman was on time and very professional. Quickly completed the repair. He noticed the toilet was making a strange noise. He asked permission to look inside the tank. Found the problem and made the adjustment - no charge.

  • Richardson Plumbing Company
    It went very well. Mr. Richardson is always prompt and professional. He also did a great job of replacing my hot water heater a few years ago. He explained what he was doing at every step of the way. He fixed the shower in one of my bathrooms that had been dripping for several years. I had a sink

    B Ray Hines is excellent. We would highly recommend him for any septic project. He is prompt, knowledgeable, and honest. He works with his crew and does NOT recommend costly unnecessary repairs or replacement--in other words he is far above some competitors.
    Rebecca I.
    It was fantastic. Very professional and timely. They did exactly what they said they were going to do, and they were finished when they said they would be finished. They were also the middle quote of three quotes that we had received. They should have an A+ for quality.

  • CS Hines Inc
    Another plumbing company had cut our sewer line and was recommending we hook up to city sewer which would have cost THOUSANDS of dollars. this company pumped out septic tank, found where sewer line was cut and told us there was nothing wrong with our septic system. I would highly recommend.
    Dennis M.
    They're very honest and they call back immediately. They're very, very, flexible especially since we're out of state. We used them before we moved, so we already had a relationship. I can always count on Travers and when they tell me something I know that it's true. I don't have to guess or suspect

  • Wood Septic Tank Co
    They were excellent. We never had any problems. We have many family mbrs on 10 acres of land and they do all the homes at the same time.
    Jamie H.
  • Roto-Rooter Plumbing & Water Cleanup
    Barry [service tech] arrived on time, and had to do a little more than he [or we], expected before he was able to find the problem. Once he did, he sat down and gave us his best opinion on a solution and cost, and when we agreed to his idea he went straight back to work without stopping until

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.
