"If your existing septic system is failing and you need a new system, then you need to hire of M&M's LLC." Our system was failing. We talked with several professionals, got some advice (good and not-so-good) on how to handle the situation. We hired an engineering firm to evaluate the situation and design the fix. They came up with the plan, and submitted the plan to the county health board for approval. Once approved, the county health sent the approved plan to me (owner copy and installer copy). I made several copies of the installer's document and submitted to several installers for bid. The plan called for use of the existing septic tank, adding a filter tank, a pump tank, and installation of a completely new drain field. was the quickest to respond, and the most thorough in his discussion with me on how to address the installation. He listed to our potential concerns and answered all of our questions. The installation went off without a hitch, except for two days of rain. If not for the rain, the installation would have been completed in 4 days. was well organized (no waiting for trucks, equipment, tanks, electrician, or county inspectors---he had it all well-orchestrated), skilled as anyone can possibly be with the digging equipment, and meticulous in his installation of the tanks, and field. The clean-up far exceeded our expectations. does really good, clean work. Others might be just as good (maybe), but hard to believe that anyone is better. The bottom line is if you need a septic system installer, I have done all of the research for you, and have the proof in my backyard that you should just hire M&M's Just Septic LLC.

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.

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.

They came out and pumped the tank. They said it would be 250.00 but when they came out and said we had roots in the septic which was ok. Then he said we had solids in out line as well and charged us even more money. The worst thing about the service is that he says he takes credit cards but if you use a credit card it is 5% extra on the total cost. ...More he never states this upfront only at the time of payment.

The company responded to my frantic phone call right away. The manager located the service repairman and called me back to tell me when the repair man would arrive. The repair man was on time, polite, professional and gave us full confidence that he would locate and solve the problem. He worked for more than 3 hours in the cold and dark to help us. ...More He solved the problem and waited to make sure everything was working with the plumbing before he left.

I called at 7:30 in the morning and he came later that day. What I hoped was a clogged sink drain turned out to require replacing the entire sink line and replumbing the kitchen sink drain. returned the next day to finish the job. I thought the price was more then fair for the ...More amount of work required. 's a real professional and I highly recommend him.

We couldn't be more pleased with the job done by Services, . and his team were very professional, courteous and honest. They came on the agreed upon date and charged exactly what they said they would charge. called ahead like he said he would, to ...More let us know that they were on the way. They actually had to dig a 3 foot deep hole by hand to get to the tank and they did this without complaining. Our septic tank had never been pumped out before and we had told them this when we set up the date for them to come out. It would have been easy for them to have taken advantage of that fact and they did not. I will definitely recommend them to anyone needing septic service assistance.

BEWARE After this company assessed my septic for 150 in January 2015, they did not return to work or further assess. I lived with a broken septic ten months. This week I called another company, Allied. They repaired the system the same week, changed nothing for the assessment, and gave me a discount. The entire repair was complete in half a day as all ...More that was necessary was cleaning the tank and unplugging lines.

I contacted the provider around 9am and explained my plight with the sump pump alarming. Mr Buhot asked me a series of questions over the phone and he then assessed what my current septic configuration was through the relevant authorities.
He gave me a full description of the potential works involved along with up front pricing. He confirmed ...More that this would be reviewed once his team were able to assess the exact situation on site.
The team arrived around noon and quickly went about the job and the initial assessment by Mr Buhot proved correct.
The team by were polite, courteous and respectful. They gave me a full walkthrough of what they were going to do and have to say they did a great job.
I would strongly recommend this outfit as they are clearly from the top by a professional who appears to value customer service in a very demanding environment.
Exceptional service good quality equipment and one very satisfied customer.
