Most homeowners would rather not think about their septic tank, but the fact of the matter is, it’s a crucial part of your plumbing system, and you need to think about it! If you go too long without having your septic tank pumped, or if you ignore signs that it needs a repair, the tank’s contents could back up into your house…and then, you will definitely be thinking about it. Don’t wait for disaster to happen—call your friendly Erwin NC septic tank company for all your cleaning, maintenance and repair needs. Here are some tips on choosing the best septic tank contractor for your needs.
Septic System Experience
Your septic system is much more complex and intricate than it appears, and should only be handled by an experienced professional. Be sure to ask your septic tank contractor how long he or she has been in the business, how many tanks in the area the company has serviced, and whether he or she completes other “handyman” jobs, or focuses solely on septic tank maintenance. If you are still in doubt, ask for one or two references which you can contact.
Reliability & Punctuality
Like all service contractors, a septic tank repair professional should be prompt, arrive when he says he will arrive, and perform the work efficiently. You want this individual to be someone you can rely on if there is ever a septic tank emergency. For instance, at Eastern Septic Company, we have answered emergency calls on Thanksgiving Day and at two in the morning! It’s hard to identify whether someone is reliable, but one good way to tell is whether or not they answer phone calls and/or emails.
The best septic tank pump contractors will specialize in septic tanks and septic tanks only—not garage door repair, landscaping or any other non-septic-related services. Someone who multitasks on many other jobs is probably not as experienced in the septic tank industry, and only moonlights as a septic repairman in-between other jobs. With all that said, however, your contractor should be knowledgeable in all parts of the system—not just the tank and drainage field, but the sump pump, grinder pump, and attached plumbing system. You don’t want to have to call another contractor to fix one part of the system.
