Samuel L. says, "Our sewer line was leaking into our front yard and the mess and smell were awful! I called Sewer Time and they were out in a jiffy with repair trucks and even a pump truck to suck up the sewage that was in our front yard. Johnny came out to go over what the problem was and tree roots had penetrated our sewer line and was causing the problem. They were able to dig up and replace the sewer line within a day and all though the repair was not cheap it was fair for all the work they had to do. I would highly recommend Sewer Time to anyone."

Your Septic System Repair, Maintenance, or Inspection questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does septic tank pumping cost?

Septic tank pumping costs $250 to $895, depending on the tank size and location. Pumping may cost as little as $250 for a 750-gallon tank, or as much as $895 for a 1,250-gallon tank.

Completely replacing a damaged septic system can cost up to $10,000, compared to the price for regular pumping. Proper maintenance can help a septic tank last for up to 50 years.

How often should a septic tank be pumped?

The Environmental Protection Agency recommends inspecting and pumping your septic system every 3 to 5 years. Septic pumping frequency depends on the number of residents, the amount of wastewater generated, the volume of solids, and septic tank size.

Professionals should also inspect the system every 3 years to look for leaks and layers of scum and sludge. The tank needs pumping when the bottom of the scum layer is within 6" of the bottom outlet tee, or the top sludge layer is within 12" of the outlet tee.

However, if you suspect your tank is full, don't wait until then to call a professional.

How long does it take to pump a septic tank?

Pumping a septic tank takes 20 to 60 minutes, depending on the tank size, volume of waste, and equipment used. During this time, the technician will:

  • Note the tank’s liquid level and make sure there’s no leaking
  • Lower a specialized vacuum hose into the tank
  • Pump the waste to their truck
  • Watch for backflow
  • Backflush the tank to rinse off any remaining sludge
  • Inspect the tank for any damage

Who pumps septic tanks?

Septic tank companies have the skills and equipment to pump and clean a septic tank safely and efficiently. Routine septic cleanings can help keep you flushing without issue.

If you have a clog, you may be unsure whether to call a plumber or a septic service. Call a septic service if there are numerous backed-up drains, a gurgling sound when you flush the toilet, or you have sewage odor or a soggy patch above the septic tank buried in your yard. Call a plumber if only one or two drains appear affected

How can I tell if my septic tank is full?

Your septic tank may be full if:

  • Your toilets are draining slowly or backing up.
  • There are foul odors in the home.
  • Your grass is greener than usual above the tank.
  • There's standing water in your yard.

How do I choose a septic tank pumping service?

Start by searching our list of professional septic tank pumping contractors, then:

  • Look for certified septic tank pumpers that have been in business for several years.
  • Check their online reviews at HomeGuide and Google.
  • Get estimates from several companies to compare.
  • Ask about hours of operation and same-day emergency services.
  • Make sure the company uses the latest equipment.
  • Ask about the warranty policy.

What questions should I ask septic tank contractors?

When looking for local septic tank pumping companies, ask the following questions:

  • How long have you been working in this area?
  • Are you licensed, insured, and bonded?
  • Are there any other fees I can expect?
  • Will you hire any subcontractors for this job?
  • How long will the project take?
  • Will this job need any permits? If so, will you get them?
  • Do you offer a warranty for your labor?
  • Can I have a written estimate and contract?

They answered their phone and were able to fit us in for an emergency septic tank pumping and found that our filter in our tank was plugged and that is why we were getting sewage backing up into our bathrooms. We loved their septic truck driver he was very helpful and polite.
