"After another service came out and couldn't identify exactly where the lid was in the first 30 minutes of looking and after digging one small hole which reached" the tank but not necessarily the lid, they gave up and didn't want to continue. Milty's called mid-day to come out but had to go dump their tank and said they would be back that day. They actually showed up the next afternoon, but then got everything handled.

"It couldn't have gone much better.
and his team (
and
) are great to work with. I was" concerned because the work was contracted as Time and Materials, but at the end of the day I felt like I got my money's worth and then some ... when they were working, the backhoe almost never stopped. They under ran the estimate by about 2K even though I added some work, so that was good news.
offered several suggestions as the work progressed to save money or improve the outcome. He is very good on the backhoe and there is little if any wasted motion. They were on time everyday, worked full days, Have first class equipment, were pleasant to work with, are honest and professional. I have more excavation to do next year and won't hesitate to give them the work.

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)

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.

Norcross Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
, the driver showed up (on time) and was a joy to deal with even though it was 95 degrees and humid as heck outside. :(
Since I am the female home owner, he explained a lot about septic tanks (and mine in particular) that I was not even aware of. He did such a good job of not only cleaning out my smelly tank , but also rinsing off the hose and his tools PRIOR to him removing them from inside of the tank. I was quite impressed by that because the last business that I had at my residence was HORRIBLE and very unprofessional. They literally made a mess of my yard plus they cracked the tank lid and then replaced it with an inferior one!
I plan on hiring this business next time I need someone and I have already saved their number in my phone. EXCELLENT!!!!

A well known brand name company had inspected the same line the day before and declared it was collapsed. The estimate to dig up and replace the sewer line was over $6000.
Norcross Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
guys came out as soon as possible, ran the same line, cleared the roots, and found the line was intact all the way to the sewer. The other well known brand name company had taken the wrong turn in the sewer line and ran their camera the wrong was up a "Y" joint into a second drain line that joined at the "Y", and concluded incorrectly that their camera was stuck because of a collapsed sewer line.

Called
Norcross Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
company at 9:15 in AM on 7/24/2015 to ask about getting septic tanked drained as we were having issues with our toilets flushing.
Norcross Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
immediately stated that he could be at our house in Waynesville in 1 to 1-1/2 hours to complete the job. They arrived ON TIME and cleaned out our septic tank and wanted to make sure that the drainage lines were functioning properly. After flushing the toilets, it was noticed that they were still not flushing properly. For $90.00 they were able to snake the main drain line and clear out any issues. They made some recommendations to my wife on ways to improve and lengthen our time between septic clean outs. I would definitely use

The driver was kind, professional and curtious. But once the job was complete and paid for the driver attempted to pull out of our drive way. We had recently had an ice storm so the ground was still wet and icy on one side of our drive way. When he pulled out he apparently got stuck from not pulling in properly and dregged up our drive way. The driver immedielty called the owner and the owner apparently told him that there wasn't anything we could do. After months of calling and calling and being ignored we finally called from a different number and the man answered, I'm assuming it was the ower. He was rude, claimed his insurance came out and there was no fault of the driver. Our home owners insurance came out the day after it happened and said the company is responsible but because we only had swelling coverage there wasn't anything they could do. So now we're stuck with anything $2,500 repair job that should have never happened. Again the driver was courteous, but after talking with several other septic companies the driver should have evaluated the asphalt drive way before pulling in. I HIGHLY recommend
