3 Questions for Septic System Contractors

Is it time for a septic system inspectionor do you need your tank pumped? If so, you’ll need to find a reliable septic system specialist. It’s important not to rush through the hiring process, however, because septic system mistakes can be time-consuming, hazardous and expensive. To find the absolutely best septic system contractorsin your area, ask these three questions before finalizing a work contract.

1. Do you have the required local and state certifications?

The first question you should ask any potential septic system contractor is whether or not they have all of the required certifications. By law, all septic service companiesmust be officially licensed at both the local and state levels. This means they are registered to practice. If the company or contractor you’re interviewing lacks the appropriate documentation, you should probably find help elsewhere.

2. How much will the job cost?

Septic system contractors perform a number of different jobs, from septic tank installationand inspections, to septic tank pumpingand repair. Each of these services has a different cost; so you should clarify what they will expect you to pay. Make sure to ask if all of the required materials, as well as any labor, are included in the estimate.

3. When will you be expected to pay?

It’s rare that they will expect you to pay for any contracted work upfront. If the company you are working with asks this of you, it can be a red flag. Most contractors will expect payment sometime after the septic repairsare completed, but you’ll want to find out exactly when. Will you pay the contractor on site after he is finished or be invoiced later?
