"I called another place before going with
. I decided to go with them because they were so much more helpful over the phone, and answered" all my questions. This was my first time to have my tanks pumped, and it was a learning experience for me. My septic tanks ended up being buried about 2 ft under ground, and were not easy to find. The employee
they sent out was great, and worked hard to dig up my tanks by hand. He also was very informative about the cost of everything along the way, and cleaned up well when he was finished.

"The lady who answered the phone was friendly and asked questions to make sure I received the correct service. She also worked with me on scheduling so my husband" could be here when they came. The guy that came was knowledgeable, professional and friendly. We will definitely use them again and highly recommend them.

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.

Call on Monday and made appointment for Wednesday. Was supposed to be first on the list. Was supposed to show up by 9:00. Had not shown up by 10:00 I called and receptionist said he was at a business. Never called to let me know they would be late. Finally showed up about 11-11:15. Good information about preventative maintenance on septic system from technician. Little put off by fact he just piled dirt back on top of tank with no attempt to put sod back on top. Overall seemed efficient.

They came out when they said they would. They inspected the septic system and found a small wiring problem with the float system and repaired it. They left a report on our front door. When I read the report, I noticed that the service tech described everything he did, but he failed to notate the sludge level of the tanks and he failed to notate whether or not it needed to be pumped out or not. The sludge level was the first thing I wanted to know from the inspection but the service tech forgot to notate it. I called them back and let them know that the sludge level was not notated on the report. They sent him back out the next day to provide a compete report including the sludge level. They were very responsive and provided good information regarding our system.

Great. They are very professional. There was nothing that I didn't dislike. They came and gave a good estimate. The price was good compared to others who quoted me a higher price. They came when they said they would. They were on time. They got the permit like they said they would because I was doing it with someone else and he was never really able to get it together.
