is one of the good guys! This was the first time I had called this company - my septic service had previously been handled by another company" that told me my system needed to be cleaned every 2-3 years, and it had already gone longer than that.
came out, checked the size of the tank, and calculated that I could go another year without a problem, so he suggested waiting on it. He didn't even charge me for driving out. This kind of honesty is so refreshing and much appreciated - and I will definitely be calling him when it's time.

"First experience with
was exemplary 5 years ago. Service providers arrived on time, just before noon a couple weeks ago. They came to my" front door after failing to find the clean out area using a map they said was provided as a result of service call 5 years earlier. I showed them where clean out is located (having lived here over 2 decades, it was easy). One of the men argued with me about the location, suggesting I Was wrong! They got to work and completed task in a little over an hour. They did not inform me when they were done and just left. I noticed they dug an area much larger than during prior service call and area appeared much more disturbed than in the past. 7-10 days later vegetation was dying in the area they worked and my husband determined a sprinkler line was not functioning. He found a yellow sheathed bundle of wires in the septic dug out area that had been cut and reburied. It took 10 days to get our regular irrigation people out on a service call . They determined the cut wires caused the malfunction in the sprinkler line. I called
to provide feedback and indicated it was hard to believe the service providers did not know about the cut wires as they were quite obvious. Having failed to mention the problem to me
to a couple of week delay in discovery and repair of sprinkler issue. Vegetation suffers in 99 degree heat. The
reps i spoke with assured me a manager would get the info and get back with me. I have heard nothing from them which I find inexcusable. So add $108 dollars to cost of cleanout due to sprinkler issue. I will not be using the

How to maintain a septic system

A highly rated Angie's List service provider 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)

Living a little more lightly is not only good for our planet … it can help your septic tank to function better

Just as your car requires regular maintenance, your septic system needs maintenance on a regular schedule as well, says Mills. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Diana N. of Chicago)

Septic Tank, Wells & Pumps

Are you unsure if you should buy that house because it has a septic tank? Or, curious about getting a house with a well? Here’s what you need to know.

Angie's Answers


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.

Septic Tank Cleaning reviews in Chino


He arrived at the scheduled time, actually earlier. He called to ok that. He put in a snake with a camera and found sludge and roots. He cleared them and poured something in the drain that would eat away the roots. I couldn't use the drain for 4 hours. My receipt just has the total charged and no itemization. There is a warranty of 6 mths or 1 return trip.

was timely, efficient and his estimate was spot on. If I had a question, he answered it. Our well pump was 460 feet down and he brought up the malfunctioning one and put a new one down in the same day.
Outside of the immense amount of labor involved in doing a well pump -

and was told that the septic system maintenance and pumping are handled by two different departments would have to be checked out for $85 by the maintenance department before I could schedule a pumping. Told me that ALL septic systems should have a contract on them. Well, ours doesn't and never has. Called my neighbor and asked her, and she said she never had a contract either. Unpleasant phone call. Would not use.

I was originally told they could not get to us for another week. Within the next hour our septic began to back up into our drains. I called back and spoke with
Chino Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
who was wonderful and sent someone out within the hour. It was pouring rain and storming but the great man who did the pumping stayed out in that rain and did a wonderful job. We were told also that our Brush filter needed to be replaced which they did at the same time. Everyone we dealt with was very professional but very understanding and caring. I would absolutely deal with Ed

We hired

to pump our septic tank after reading the reviews here. They did a great job. Our tank was completely full before we called. They showed up, pumped it out, talked to us about do's and

'ts of septic tanks, and finished up the job. We were surprised at how fast they got the job done. They were friendly and professional.

Fantastic service.
Chino Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
was prompt and friendly in all her communications. She was courteous and understanding when we experienced an unexpected scheduling change, and they were able to accommodate us on very short notice when we regained access to the property for inspection.
The inspection went smoothly and we received a detailed report of all activities completed, delivered when promised. We learned that there is a 2nd cesspool on the property, something our seller never mentioned.
We definitely plan to use them in the future if and when the need arises.
- Grete E.

They pumped out the septic tank but then told us we needed a new drain field on one of them and that if we hired him on the weekend we wouldn't have to go through the company and it would be cheaper; $2,500 vs the companies $5,000! Not a reputable company at all!
