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.
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.
