GET PUMPED! Overview The cost of regular maintenance is far less than the cost of system replacement. System replacement can cost from $2,000 to $15,000 or more. A small effort on a regular basis can save homeowners from major cost and inconvenience.
GET PUMPED! Did You Know? An unusable septic system or one in poor condition can lower your property value. Commercial additives are not a substitute for regular inspection and pumping. Improper maintenance is the most common cause of costly septic system repair or replacement. The cost of a system inspection can range from $50 - $150; pumping can cost between $100 - $400.
GET PUMPED! What NOT to Do: DON’T ignore your septic system! DON’T rely on commercial septic tank additives, cleaners, feeders, starters, etc. to save you money as a substitute for regular system maintenance.
GET PUMPED! What TO do: DO have your system inspected every three years, and pumped as recommended. DO think of your septic system as an investment. DO use a certified professional for all inspections and pumpings.
