Frequently Asked Questions

How Often Should I Pump My Septic System?

The frequency of septic pumping and inspections depends on several factors, including tank size, household size, and water usage. As a general guideline, it is recommended to pump the tank every 3-5 years and schedule an annual inspection. Regular inspections can help identify and address issues early, such as an overworked pump or tree roots clogging leach lines, potentially saving you money in the long run.

What Is Line Jetting? Why Would I Need This Service?

Line jetting clears out your drain lines by using high-pressure water. This will clear obstructions and help with regular maintenance of your septic system to prevent backups.

Are You Licensed & Insured?

Yes, I am licensed and insured, fully complying with state and local laws. Hiring a licensed and insured contractor like myself provides protection and ensures that your homeowner’s insurance doesn’t have to cover any potential damages. Avoiding uninsured contractors is important to prevent potential costs in worst-case scenarios.

Great service! Called back in 15 minutes, showed up an hour later and cost $75 less than the other local company that said they couldn't come out for another week. Also, he did a thorough job of cleaning out the tank. Friendly, professional and prompt!

Septic system (tank) was full and overflowing. Tenants could no longer use toilets. Septico arrrived the next day and pumped out a very compacted system which was very time consuming and difficult. This lasted much longer due to the impacted tank until dark. Owner, Steve, even met me later that evening, after he had gone home for the day, and loaned me his "electric snake" so I could unclog leach line from tank the next morning. Very friendly and courteous service. Was not charged for emergency service, overtime, and use of snake. He charges at least 20% less than his overpriced competition that has become accustomed to being the only "game in town/county". I highly recommend this service and encourage everyone to utilize it. You will be very happy you did!

My septic tank was backing up on Saturday 9/17 and I needed it pumped ASAP. I called Sweet Pea, closed. I called the 24 hour emergency line for Foothill, nobody scheduled for this weekend. Finally I called Steve at Septico and he was at my house 3 hours later. I was beyond impressed with Steve's professionalism and promptness. I will be calling him in the future and I encourage others to do so as well.
