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?

Dealing with a leaky kitchen sink can be frustrating, especially when you've already installed a new faucet. Unfortunately, that was the situation I found myself in at my home in North Hills 91343. Thankfully, Lopez Plumbing was able to help me out. I called them and within an hour, their technician, Nery was at my doorstep. He quickly diagnosed the issue and had it fixed in just 20 minutes! Nery was not only skilled and efficient, but he was also very friendly and courteous. He provided a fair price for the repair, and I couldn't be happier with the service I received. If you're ever in need of plumbing help, I highly recommend giving Lopez Plumbing a call. They have a team of dedicated professionals who will get the job done right and in a timely manner.

I had the pleasure of finding Victor for a huge plumbing repair job in my home in 2022 and have continued to use LA Plumbing Pros for several large- and small-scale projects. I couldn't be more satisfied with the service provided. From start to finish, Victor exemplified professionalism, hard work, and reliability. He was incredibly communicative throughout each process. He promptly returned my calls, answered all my questions, and kept me informed about the progress of each job. His punctuality and dedication to completing the work efficiently were truly impressive. Not only is Victor reliable, but he is incredibly hardworking. He approaches each job with a strong work ethic, tackling each task with precision and attention to detail. It’s evident he takes pride in his work, and the results speak for themselves. Additionally, Victor is fair and transparent when it came to pricing. There were no hidden fees or surprises, and he provided a detailed breakdown of the costs upfront. This level of transparency was greatly appreciated and further demonstrated his integrity and commitment to customer satisfaction. Overall, I highly recommend Victor to anyone in need of plumbing services.
