"When water started to backup into my tub, I called
based upon Angie's rating and I sure wasn't disappointed. I called early this" morning, explained my problem and was assured someone would be out today. I was told I would be called when Pat had a better idea of time of day. He called, explained he was leaving his location and was on his way and arrived as expected. When he arrived, I provided as much information as I could, some of the information I had and a short tour of the layout. He located my tank, found and opened the cover, took a look around and, based upon what he saw, diagnosed a line clog (and why) all within less than 30 minutes and no charge. As concerned as I was, I appreciate that he came out today as promised and appreciate the courtesy diagnosis. I'll happily be using
for all my septic services.

"I needed to obtain a cesspool company for the problem I was having in my house and went on Angie's List to see which companies were available.
" and Rooter Service were highly rated. I called and spoke to
who was very nice and professional. She asked questions to determine the service that I may need. She was able to schedule the service the same day and gave me an estimated time range when someone will come. She said she would call to give me a heads up when they will be on their way. She was true to her word and when she called I was at an appointment which was just about to end. I told
I should be home in 20 minutes and as I pulled into my driveway the
trucks turned the corner. I met
who were friendly and professional. I told them about my situation and they checked the cesspool and overflow and saw that they were full. At that time,
discussed the services and price with me, it all made sense and was reasonable. I accepted and
completed the job in a professional manner explaining things as they worked and answered my questions.
lived up to their rating and is
in my book.

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)

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

For Angie’s List magazine’s third-annual “Toilet Issue”, we interviewed septic tank service providers from across the country, and found that — in addition to strong smells — a strong sense of family was a common theme throughout many of the companies.

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 Bolingbrook


DO NOT HIRE HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hired Mr.
Bolingbrook Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
to fix a septic tank issue where he had replaced a pump in one of two holding tanks. After 2 weeks, the alarm on my septic rang out and, as I was out of town, relied upon Mr.
Bolingbrook Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
to fix the problem. He stated that both my pumps needed to replaced as did the entire drain field to cost me over $6000,he had already replaced the one pump for over $1000. He demanded $800 upfront, which I had to have my neighbors give him because I was out of town, then demanded another $3600 because his suppliers would not give him credit (red flag). I hired another company to come out and pump out the tank that would hold me until I got back. When the qualified company came out and subsequently fixed the problem, the problem was that
Bolingbrook Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
did not put in a high enough horsepower pump in the first place and the liquid was not getting to the other pumping station so it filled the tank and the alarm went off.
Bolingbrook Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
put a 1hp versus the correct 2hp pump and that WAS the problem. My problem was created by Mr.
Bolingbrook Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
which he was going to "fix" for over $6000. The other pump as well as the drainfield was inspected by the qualified technician and was found the be fine. I am currently trying to get my $800 back from Mr.
Bolingbrook Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
because there is absolutely no evidence that he did anything at all but cannot find him now. If anyone knows how to reach him, please let me know. There is a law suit waiting for him. I cannot tell anyone reading this enough to STAY AWAY from him as in my opinion, and what I have been through, he is a con man waiting to figure out how to fraudulently separate you from your money. There should be a negative star(s) for people who are con artists and actively look to take advantage of people. DO NOT HIRE HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
- Evelyn S.

The technician that responded went through the entire system fixing the circuitry issues at hand. He explained the issues in detail and answered all my questions completely. I don't think $85 for a service call is high at all... especially when they responded with in the hour since our system was in alarm and not pumping. No added prices for quick response.

Bolingbrook Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
repaired our drain field, that had been installed improperly years before. We have had numerous providers work on our septic system in the past, with limited success. He took the time to properly diagnose our problem and then promptly fixed it at a more than reasonable price. I highly recommend his service!

was awesome. Prompt and professional. Having never had my septic tank pumped before, I had no idea what to expect. I wasn't even entirely sure which cover accessed the tank.
Bolingbrook Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
took care of everything. We weren't even home when he serviced our system. Afterwards, we talked on the phone and he answered all my questions. Very friendly and courteous. Definitely plan on having him take care of things again for us next year.

Bolingbrook Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
was very prompt in responding to my request for a septic inspection at a home we are purchasing. He was able to complete the inspection in a timely manner, even being flexible through postponements due to seller issues. Since I couldn't be there, he relayed the results to me over the phone while he was on site and emailed the report to me that same evening. The seller texted me and said

was terrific. After we move in, we will call him for future septic needs. Thank you!
- Jennifer B.

They asked me to submit all the documentation for what we were wanting done and that they would get back with me. I waited to hear back and never did so I contacted them again in both August and September and never heard back from them. Finally I asked them in October for my documents back so I could hire another company.
- Melinda M.

They were quick, courteous and friendly. They explained things to me and even gave me advice for future maintenance. After the service they made sure to clean up and cover up the hole they had to dig.
