I don’t think I should have to say this, but you should know the exact location of your septic tanks. This homeowner didn’t know where it was until his car fell into it. This will be expensive to repair. I am sorry for anyone this happens to. It is so inexpensive to have a septic technician come out and locate the septic system for you. Usually it’s around 150 bucks. Then you can mark it, draw maps and keep records.
In this way, if you hire a tree cutter, or house painter, or roofer you can tell them to stay of this spot. Protect your septic system.
Remember the average major septic repair is anywhere from $3,000.00 to $6,000.00.
In this particular case it’s going to be more around $1,500.00. I only need to replace the lid of the septic tank. Pump out all the sewage, dirt, and debris that entered it. and clean it out.
