How to Choose the Right Septic Pumping Service

When it comes to your waste management system, you don’t want any mistakes. A less experienced or unscrupulous septic company could damage a pipeline, unnecessarily dig up half your yard, or leave with an incomplete pumping that leaves your tank set to overfill early.

So who should you trust to do your septic pumping?

With a little research, you can find a service provider who knows what they’re doing and can do the work for a fair price. Keep these tips in mind as you search for a qualified septic company.

Choose a Septic Service Provider with Experience

Septic systems are not easy to deal with. If any issues are missed or parts are put back together poorly after pumping, you could end up with a serious health hazard in your own backyard. This is one area of home maintenance you really don’t want to delegate to a newbie.

A professional with years of experience is less likely to make costly, hazardous mistakes. Better yet, look for a family-owned septic company. The owners will have passed tips and tricks learned through decades of work down through the generations.

Get Quotes for Septic Pumping Services

As a homeowner with a budget, you want to ensure you’re not being overcharged. It’s perfectly fair to ask multiple septic service providers for a quote before committing.

Don’t just take the lowest price at face value, though: make sure you know what it includes. Your quote might not include dumping fees, unusually heavy sludge, or additional time spent locating the tank. In addition, some septic companies charge more for pumping tanks over a certain size, such as 1000 gallons.

Consider the Septic Tank Location

When your septic service provider of choice shows up to pump your tank, they will need a place to park their truck. If you’re lucky, that place will not be too far from the septic tank. However, some homeowners run into problems if the distance between the tank and the truck parking spot is too long for the service provider’s equipment.

Ask the service provider whether they can work with the distance between your driveway and your septic tank. If they can’t, it’s better to find out know and find someone who can provide the services you need.
