Septic Tank Installation & Repair
Septic tanks need to be installed by a professional contractor who can ensure it is set up properly.
What is involved in the septic tank pumping process?
When we arrive at your home, we will locate the septic tank. Next, we will dig up both of the access lids to the tank and make sure the septic is coming in from the house properly and that your field lines are taking water properly. If everything is in good condition, we will cover the tank back up. However, sometimes depending on the conditions of the system, we will go ahead and pump out the septic tank. We will let the customer know if this needs to be done before we do it. We will also complete an inspection while we are there. We will send the official inspection letter through email within 1-2 days.
How do I know if my home has a septic tank? Or How do I find out where my septic tank is located?
Often, when we come to your home, we can locate and find the septic tank right away using a probe rod. If we are unable to locate the septic tank with a probe rod, we also have a septic tank locator. This is a great tool that most septic companies do not have. Unfortunately, when the septic system is having issues and backing up in the house, we will not be able to use the locator and the homeowner will need to call the county’s environmental health department. They will give you a drawing of the where the septic tank location is. This is only done when we are unable to locate a tank using all the other resources. We do not charge any additional fees for any of this.
How frequently should you pump out a septic tank?
It is best to have your septic tank pumped out every 3-5 years. Over the course of years, the consistent flow of water from your home to your drain field can be a lot. Eventually, over time your drain lines can become oversaturated from a constant flow of water. This results in drain line failure. Pumping your septic system regularly gives the system a break from all the water that is constantly being used in the home. Septic drain line repair can be very expensive. If your septic tank has not been pumped out regularly, it is almost guaranteed that this will happen. Preventative maintenance is key.
How much does it cost to install a septic system and what do I need to do to get this done?
The first question most homeowners ask when installing a septic system is, “How much does it cost?” The answer to this can all depend on what materials are needed, what type of work and how much time it involves, and if there are any other unforeseen issues that arise. This can vary depending on the layout of the land, soil type, and size of the home.
The first thing that a homeowner needs to do is to call the county’s environmental health department. They will be able to tell you where the septic tank and septic system will need to be installed. They will also issue you a permit and set up a date and time to come to your home and complete a soil sample. This will determine what size septic tank and how many feet of drain line will need to be installed for the septic system.
Most homes will need to have 1,000-gallon septic tanks. Bigger homes will need to have 1,500-gallon septic tanks. The county’s environmental health department will determine this on the day they complete the soil sample. As soon as the soil sample is complete, we can give a more accurate estimate of the septic system installation. Usually, we can be at your home within a week to start the installation. On average, it will take 1-2 days to complete. After the septic tank installation has been completed, the county’s environmental health inspector will complete a final inspection on the septic system. After they inspect the septic system, your septic tank will be ready to go!
