Description of service

Septic tank replacement cost me 6000$. The old septic tank wouldn't work because it got chocked or something. So after consulting with local health department I decided to use a contractor to replace the old septic tank. It took the contract seven to eight hours to finish the job which included tasks like sucking out the tank with honey truck then making connections with field and house lines. The contractor explained to me what the problem was and how to avoid such problems in the future.

Review of Service

Replacing a septic tank is a difficult job as it requires digging to some depth and pumping out of the old tank. The odor that comes can be very unsettling. Although installing a septic tank disrupts your natural activities for a few hours the contractor did his best to make the replacement as quickly as possible. So I am quite satisfied with the service I received.


Avoid doing a large number of laundry. If you use more water than the septic tank is capable of handling then it will over flood and the solid waste might come outside. Check you septic tank for leakages regularly. Keep children away during the whole process as they could get sick.
