How to Choose the Right Septic Company

How do you choose the best company to maintain and repair your septic tank? To start your search, there are a few factors to consider. Use the tips below to help identify a septic tank company that will likely provide a high quality level of service.

 

Consult Others

The first step in locating a reputable company to handle your septic tank needs is to ask other septic tank owners. Consult with your friends or neighbors who have septic tanks and find out who they hire to clean, repair, or pump their tanks. Word of mouth is a highly effective method of locating an excellent septic tank company in your area.

Look Into A Company’s Experience

A good sign of an experienced company is that they’ve been around for at least 20 years. Not only does this mean they are good enough to stay in business for that long, it also means that they have decades of experience in diagnosing and fixing septic tanks. A company with that much experience will be able to repair issues much more efficiently than those that don’t. It’s also important to make sure the company is experienced in your area. Companies with local experience will be more familiar with factors like weather, county ordinances, terrain, and other elements that can impact your septic system.

Examine Reviews

Numerous businesses have reviews on their Google My Business or Facebook page, providing insight into other customers’ experiences and how they rate their services.

Red Flags

Here are some negative factors to look for in a septic tank company. You should avoid ones that:

  • Are not fully licensed.
  • Will not provide proof of insurance.
  • Do not specialize in septic tanks specifically.
  • Cannot answer basic questions about your septic system.

Consider The Price

During your search, learn how much other companies charge for their services to compare prices when deciding which company to hire. However, you should not choose the least expensive option without considering the other factors listed above.
