Frequently Asked Questions

What does it cost to clean my septic tank cost?

The average cost to pump or clean a septic tank falls between $285 and $520 . The exact price depends on the size of the tank and whether any of the parts need replacement because of degradation or age. Most cleaning services charge by the project.

The most common repair element in the cleaning process is the tank filter, which ranges between $100 and $200 for most models. Replacing other parts, like PVC pipes and pumps, can range anywhere between $50 and $500 .

How often should I clean my septic tank?

You should pump and clean your septic tank at least every three to five years for optimal performance. Some pros recommend cleaning your tank more often, at one to three years . Smaller tanks may need more frequent maintenance because they fill up more quickly and their systems don't have as much power.

Can I clean my septic tank myself?

You can pump and clean your own septic tank, but you could create health risks by releasing toxic fumes and potentially contaminating your drinking water. A trained expert will know what steps to take to make sure that your home and family is safe during the maintenance process.

How do I hire a septic tank pumping service?

When searching for local septic tank contractors, a number of steps can help you find the right pro:

  • Check for online reviews from other homeowners.
  • Ask for the contractors' license and insurance to make sure you're working with credible professionals.
  • Make sure the price and project include both pumping and cleaning.
  • Focus on contractors who have been in business for a while and have experience in this type of work.
  • Ask about the process they'll use to pump out the tank without contaminating its surroundings.

Your best bet is finding one reliable contractor who you can rely on for both your current and future cleanings.
