"I discovered early Sunday that my sewer was backed-up into my basement utility sink, and waste water was on the floor. I bailed out the sink with a bucket and stopped" the overflow. Being Sunday I thought
would be closed, but I phoned anyway to maybe set up an appointment to have them come out and take a look at the problem. I spoke to their answering service and the nice young women said she would take my message and let
know. That same day on Sunday evening around 6:30 I got a call from
. They said they could have a septic pumping truck out at my place the next day at 8:30 AM if that would be OK with me. I said yes! Their truck and two man crew showed up on time on Monday. I was very relieved to see them. I had uncovered the top of the septic tank being that it was buried under a couple of feet of dirt and my lawn on Sunday afternoon. When
got to my house the crew went right to work. They pumped out the septic tank and cleaned out the blocked sewer line into the tank in about 1 hour. The employees were courteous and informative. The foreman answered all my questions about the work being done. All they needed from me was water from a garden hose to help with their servicing my septic system. I will call
again and won't wait so long to have the septic tank pumped. The tank hadn't been pumped since new, over 12 years ago. I want to thank
for the fast and friendly service!

"The original estimate was $375 for 1000-
tank. He showed up 15 mins after the appointed time of 1pm. The cover was too heavy for one man" to lift so he had to leave & get someone else to help him. An hour later he came back with two men & they got the lid off. But then he had to leave again to finish up another job. Close to two hrs later I called him & he said he was on his way. He began pumping but shortly into it he called me over and said the tank was 1,500-
and he would have to charge me $75 more. This was in addition to $50 extra that he said he would have to charge me to dig for the tank. I showed him the invoice from the last septic tank cleaning that another company in the same area had done in Oct 2008 for a total of $350. He insisted his charges were fair and consistent with other companies and that any price increases were across the board. I was told by one company that a total estimate could be given once a tank was opened up, before any pumping began.

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)

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.

The plumber said my backed up pipes were from the septic system needing to be cleaned. Called

Company and they were able to get someone out the same day. They dug down to the tank top and cleaned the tank. Unfortunately, that didn't solve my plumbing problem but their service was excellent. Would definitely use them again.

Not the usual septic company I use in

however they did show up the same day. Extremely overpriced as compared to other local companies. On top of that the driver left no invoice and I had to call for 2 days to get them to fax me a copy.

Everything went well from the initial phone call through the completion of the job. He arrived on time and worked efficiently until the pumping was complete. I mentioned that I needed a new concrete riser cover. He said that he could provide one, and quoted me a very reasonable price. It was delivered and installed the next morning. It was a very good experience!

Excellent contractor....everything was performed just as promised and installed in a very timely manner with no disruption to our household. This was a retrofit to an existing system and I was very impressed that they could do this. The clean up was above and beyond my expectations right down to seeding and covering the entire excavation site with hay. It has only been two weeks and you can scarcely tell anything of that scope was done in our yard. .I would recommend this company to anyone!!

Excellent service on all dimensions. He answered his phone and scheduled the service promptly. On the day of the service, he showed up on time and was very accommodating about explaining what he was looking for to know whether the system was working correctly. His pricing is right in line with other companies in the area, and has the advantage of being less gimmicky (i.e., he doesn't artificially raise his price $35 just so he can give everybody a $35 coupon "discount"). I checked with our town Board and he's certified to do official state inspections. Seemed very knowledgeable about system design and operation.

They messed up on how much they were billing me (wanted more money) and were up-selling products to put in the septic tanks. I tried to discuss that with them, but they just wanted the money, and that was it.

The appointment was scheduled for the 12:00 Noon - 4:00 PM time slot. The driver arrived at approximately 12:45 PM, well within the scheduled time slot. He was very professional and after exchanging peasantries immediately got to work. After completing the service , he made sure the work area was clean and the covers to the septic tank were seated properly. Overall an excellent experience.

Fast, painless experience. I called on a Friday and was able to schedule the clean out for the following morning. Office staff was fantastic about checking their records to see when the tank was last serviced, as we are new owners who have never been on a septic system before. Technicians arrived within the time frame scheduled and made quick work of it. Were very informative.
