Septic Tank Installation

We install all FL approved septic systems


If you are installing a septic system for new construction, or simply replacing an old system, we are the go-to septic company in Orlando.

For 53 years we have been installing systems in Orange and Seminole counties.

We understand the technical ins-and-outs of new systems and can help every step of the way. From design to installation, we've got you covered!

Over the past 50+ years, we've installed just about every type of septic system approved by the state. And although we can install all approved systems, we highly recommend the Infiltrator system or a multi-pipe system. These systems provide longer life and fewer maintenance issues.


How much is a new septic tank?

Installing a new septic tank depends on a few different factors like tank size and type, family size, and frequency of use.

Today, the least expensive up-front option is the concrete septic tank, but you'll pay more in the long-run on maintenance and replacement. The typical tank installed now is either fiberglass or plastic. These tanks last longer and cost less over the years.

In the Orlando area, typical tank installation prices range between $600 and $1600. You'll also need to factor in drainfield installation and lift station installation if needed.

What is the right septic tank size?

Tank sizes vary depending on your family's needs.

The average tank size installed today is 1,000 gallons, but they can be as large as 3,000 gallons for a commercial building with multiple occupants.

Here is a really simple guide to follow when you are shopping for a new septic tank:

Regular Usage - 3BR House = 1,000 Gallon Tank
Regular Usage - 5BR House = 1,200 Gallon Tank
Regular Usage - Small Apartment Building = 2,000 Gallon Tank

Ongoing septic system maintenance

The most common reason for septic system failure is improper maintenance. Committing to regular tank pumping and inspection will extend the life of your entire septic system by years.

You also want to make sure you are only using materials and chemicals that are rated to be safe for septic systems.

Having a septic company pump out the tank every 3-5 years and visually inspect the inside of the tank will also keep your tank healthy. If there are problems with the tank, drainfield, or lift station, catching these early on can mean spending a lot less on repairs.

I have an aunt and uncle that live in Windermere FL, and they call me when they have a problem around the house, since I know so many people in business there. I got a call that their toilets and sinks were backed up and they were on a septic system. I worked for Veterans Septic back in the 1990's and they were out of business.  I was referred to A1 by the previous owner and Dave Smith and his crew did a wonderful Job!As it turned out they needed a total replacement (tank was cracked and the drain-field was long overdue.... He got a pump truck out right away and had a crew out there on Saturday to replace the tank and lay a new drain-field....that is what I call service. I highly recommend them, the were on time fairly priced and guaranteed their work!

A great company and the guy was nice and even scheduled it between 11:00 and 1:00 and was here on time and got the job done.

Had a problem with my septic. I called for my septic to get pumped because it was backing up in my bathroom. When they came to pump my tank they was so honest all I need was a new filter because it was dirty and not flowing right I guess. So the guy came to my house and told me it doesn't need to be emptied it just needed a new filter. He saved me a lot of money because I would of paid for a new filter and a pumpout. Instead all I had to pay for was a new filter. He also showed me my septic was empty after he took the dirty filter out so it flowed correctly. A1 Septic Orlando is so honest I would recommend them to anyone.


Thank you a-1. I started having a bubbling sound from my 17 .shower when I flushed the toilet. I called a local septic company to empty my tank and was told that my entire drain field was bad. So I started the process of getting quotes to replace the system. That was until Tom from a1 showed up. He said based on the age of my home I should have a filter and that would cause the bubbling sound if it was dirty. Sure enough once Tom took the time to open the back of my tank he found a dirty filter. The total cost was $125. Much cheaper than the $4200-$6500 quotes I received from 3 other companies I'm just glad there are still honest companies out there. I will only use a1 from now on.
