"From the beginning a few months prior to making the decision to replace our septic almost 4 month prior we have to get our septic pumped we noticed it was strange" we had to pump so quickly after purchasing our home for only a year and after thorough investigation from the owner
he found our issue just from opening up and looking inside the tank. We had an old tank that was basically just cement and plaster falling apart. He did a soil analysis and gave me a quote and suggestions on what needed to happen but he did more than that. The most important thing he did was inform me, I learnt so much more as a home owner in septic tanks in my hour with him than i did in my entire life and prepped me for my decision in the future. He never forced me to make a decision just laid it out for me to informatively decide. From his own words he may not be the cheapest or the most expensive but you will definitely get quality work you can rely on. And i know i have no other choice in septic from now on even if it's 3 years from now or moving into another home in central florida than
. You will not be disappointed and you have free speech whereby if you don't like something he will hear and discuss your issue.

How To Maintain a Septic System

A contractor describes how to properly maintain your septic system and drain field. Here are five tips to help.

Septic systems

Septic systems are commonly used in rural areas and sometimes in areas not served by a municipal sewage system. Septic systems absorb household sewage and distribute the liquid waste into a designated leach field where natural processes can reclaim it. However, solid wastes and grease must be pumped out of the septic system periodically.

For top performance, you want the landscaping over your septic system to promote drainage and prevent erosion. Grass is ideal for this purpose. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Tracy F. of Dayton, Ohio)

In almost all areas, you have to get a permit from the county or city to rebuild a septic tank or leach field - permit cost typically $150-600, though can reach $2000 in some areas for a new installation. The reason is they will then come out and inspect the installation and review the test results from the civil engineer, from whom a design and soil percolation test and construction inspection report will be required before they issue an operating permit.

If you have a question on the process, the county or city most likely has a permit requirements info sheet on their website describing the process and requirements - googel your locale name combined with a search phrase like this - leach field test

The real reason a permit is required is to be sure an engineer designs the field, that the leach field is designed to match the existing soil conditions, and that it is built to the design so hopefully it will neither break through to the surface, contaminate the groundwater, nor contaminate nearby wells or waterways, thereby creating a public nuisance and health hazard.

The reason for the initial presale infiltration capacity test you had done is to provide some assurance to the buyer that the system is likely to work as needed, at least for the forseeable future, and is based on the number of bedrooms and sometimes number of bathrooms in the house as the basis for estimating the "load" the system is likely to see. There are different tests in different locales - some use a minimal criteria of 3 or 4 gpm flow for 20 minutes, other use the more common design guide of 150gpd (gallons per day) per bedroom in the house- some prorated for a 1 hour period, some far more strict by requiring a 24 hour test. 300 gallons in 45 minutes is an extremely stringent criteria - I would check with the buyilding department that this is right, because this adds up to a rate of 9600 gallon sper day - of about 64 bedrooms worth of capacity ! I am sure I have never ever seen that strict a criteria for a residential (as opposed to resort/ hotel/ commercial) septic system, so I would check that the tester did not somewhere add a zero to the volume to be pumped or something.

Also, returning water is not a viable basis for failing the test - the proper way to conduct a test is to pump the specified amount of water, and verify that the water level at the discharge pipe has returned to the original level by the end of the specified time - usually to the invert (bottom) of the pipe, but generally a conditional or "warning" approval will be given to one that does not raise the water table above the top of the 4" discharge pipe during the test time. You might discuss this with the civil engineer before going ahead with a new leach field construction - to me it sounds like the test may have been rigged to fail,, because in-service leach fields would not take 300 gallons of water without raising the water level to the top of the pipe for a period, even though they could take that flow for an extended period ot time.

I would guess that the wrong term was used to describe your problem. What was probably meant was that the leach field was saturated. This is to say that the soil around your leach field is saturated with solids from the septic tank and you may have to have it replaced. If you do not have the tank pumped often enough this can happen as well as just aging of the system. Many people ignore the septic till there is a problem do to out of sight out of mind or the false belief they are saving money. If you have a large family you may have to have the tank pumped every 2 or three years. Some of the towns around here have passed laws to that effect to avoid such problems.

There should be no growth other than grass on your leach field - for brush, bushes or trees use the kill-all Roundup herbicide to kill off the entire plant. For roots intruding from outside the leach field, use a root killer like RootX once or twice a year - I would do two treatments a month apart initially if you have root problems. Unfortunately, just killing the roots is not going to solve the problem you currently have, because they decay extremely slowly or not at all in a leach field due to the saturated and greasy conditions - they are almost embalmed in the sludge. If you have a significant problem, you may have to kill them, then get them routed out. This can be a $500-1000 job depending on how your field is designed and how accessible the inlets of the field distribution pipes are.

Very prompt response to first call for service.
Pumped tank out, and noted drain field needed to be replaced...not what I wanted to hear!
After shopping around , no one could match or beat Greens price! ...
So after I said go ahead with the job, took a few weeks to get all the permits and soil tests done,
On day of install they came at time they said they would and had the hole dug up and drains installed in a few hours. By 10 AM they were ready for the inspection and that was well coordinated for 10 AM as well.
Passed the inspection and then the hole was filled back up with new clean fill and all done by 1PM !
This was all while keeping me up to date what was going on at all times.....Very good communication!
I waited 3 months before writing this review to make sure no issues came up.....all is good.....
Thank-you to

Orlando Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
arrived at my home and quickly got to work. He completely cleaned out my septic tank after pumping it, cleared out a root mass and also chopped away roots that were growing around the edges of my tank. He rinsed out the tank and pumped out the rinse water, then resealed the lid. He made sure that I saw the inside and knew that he completely emptied the tank. He takes great pride in his work and his company and I was just thrilled with the outstanding service that was provided. I will use

The night before, my septic backed up into my shower. I went on Angie's list and called
Orlando Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
as they had an excellent rating. They sent someone out who drained the tank. He was thoughtful, knowledgeable and kind. He explained to me everything he was doing. Because we did not do regular septic maintenance, I need a new drainfield. I will most definitely hire

to do the drainfield. The owner,

Two week delay in install due to his work backlog (probably a good sign), his initial response and onsite investigation were done quickly and professionally. He told me it would be "at least" the first week in February and he called on Sunday Feb 1 to tell me they'd be there on Monday (Feb 2) by 1:00...they were onsite by 11:30 and gone by 3:30 (45 minutes was waiting for the county inspector).

Summary : bait and switch. provided quote up front, then charged nearly twice the amount. damaged lawn worse than expected, and damaged landscaping system. They are liscensed and bonded which partially attracted me to them, but when they refused to provide me as the customer their insurance info due to underground wiring damage, and then hang up the phone you know exactly what kind of mom n pop company you are dealing with. stay away us my only advice as untrustworthy from start to end.

I called Mr.
Orlando Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
late Saturday night and he told me he would arrive Monday (which was fine because I wasn't in dire straights...just my alarm was sounding to alert me of an issue). His gentlemen arrived on Monday and even though I accidentally spoke the incorrect address and cost them time to actually get to me, they were still very courteous, professional, and had a great sense of humor. The guys did a great job and my husband and I are happy. Thank you
