1. How does a septic system work?

If your property isn’t connected to a public sewer line, a septic system manages your wastewater and waste products. Essentially, it relies on naturally occurring bacteria to break down solid waste. Liquid waste is filtered into a leach field, where it’s absorbed by the soil or it is held in a holding tank that is pumped by a septic service company like C&R Pumpers. With proper maintenance, a septic system can be a durable and eco-friendly solution. 

2. What is the cost of a septic system?

The cost of a septic system installation can vary significantly based on factors like property size and system complexity. In our service area, new installations typically range from ten to fifteen thousand dollars. For an accurate estimate, we recommend consulting with a local contractor experienced in septic system installations. 

3. How often should a septic tank be pumped?

Regular maintenance is crucial for septic systems. It’s generally recommended to have your tank pumped every three to five years to prevent potential issues and keep costs low in the long run. 

4. What are signs of septic system problems?

Common warning signs include foul odors, slow drainage, sewage backups and pooling water above the drain field. If you notice any of these signs, prompt septic tank maintenance is essential. 

5. What if I can’t find my septic tank cover?

Finding a buried septic tank cover can be challenging, especially for new homeowners. Our professional team can assist in locating and accessing your septic tank cover efficiently.
