"Very professional. Extremely fast response. Same day service provided.
came to the house and he is great.

-Carolina F.

"I showed him the spot where the septic was located and he dug down to a rock covering the opening. He looked inside the tank and saw that it was not overflowing." He asked me to flush each toilet separately so he could see if each flush properly drained into the tank. They did. He took a measurement of the depth and said that the septic was in not full, rather it was nearly empty; and that the drain field was in good condition. My only charge was $50 for his trip out. I was so happy that that there was no problem. He was very nice and very honest. I will keep his number forever for the future and I highly recommend him to everyone.

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.

Cleaning a septic system needs to be done every couple of years.

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.

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)

Don’t mess up your septic tank or your well water. If you’re a new home owner (or need a refresher), review this checklist for maintenance requirements.

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 Maintenance reviews in Brooksville


The price for the service was LESS than the quoted over the phone by $100.00, I guess because our tank was smaller. They actually called to come a little earlier than the original schedule. They were called on a Thursday, and performed the service on Monday. Very quick turn around time. The technicians were very professional and explained everything they were going to do. I would recommend them and use them again.
- Tammy L.

Background: I purchased the home in mid 2014 and the septic was new and

is under contract for two years to service the system.

has always shown up as required to conduct the periodic maintenance and leaves a printout of the report for my records.
I received a call from my tenants Saturday morning around 9 am that the toilets were not flushing. We had just had a heavy rain, but since it is an

system, it should have been fine. I called
Brooksville Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
and told them of my issue and I was expecting that since it was last-minute on a Saturday, they would send someone out on Monday or charge me an "emergency service" fee. Neither happened and I was told that they had a technician who was out and he would stop by and inspect the system and see what the issue was. The technician inspected the system and told me the high water alarm was on, most likely due to a clogged line, but everything looked good now and the alarm would go off soon. The alarm went off and the tenants reported that everything works fine.
I was very impressed with the customer service I received when I called on Saturday morning. There was no hesitation regarding my issue, she told me she would send someone out to check the system. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone who is looking for a company to provide septic maintenance.

They cleaned out the tank and inspected it. Everything turned out fine. They were courteous and efficient. They showed up when they said they were going to be there and were out quickly. THEY Didn't Tear up the yard.
- Tammy S.

Most impressive was this companies communication from the employee doing the work. The office had scheduled a specific time for the work. The truck driver called not once, but twice to update me on actual arrival time. After arrival, the employee proceeded to diagnose the problem. He corrected the issue, suggested a method to prevent future problems, and pointed out a potential issue to be delt with at a future date. Great communication, great service, and at a fair price.
- Dale B.
