One of the most common questions we get here at CEC Plumbing, Inc is what to expect for the cost of Lighthouse Point septic tank repairs. In all honesty this is a difficult question to answer because obviously so much depends on exactly what needs to be done. So if you want a basic range national data reports the cost can be as low as $235 or a high as over $3,100.
Pretty wide range, right? Which is why putting a price tag on this type of work can be so difficult. The average is around $1,200 to over $1,800. The thing to keep in mind is that once the price for repair exceeds a certain amount it may make more sense to replace it. As a general rule if the repairs cost is more than 50% of the value of the system then it is time to opt for a septic tank replacement.
Signs of Trouble & Other Information
Hopefully as a homeowner you are aware of the fact that you septic tank should be pumped about every 5 years or so. If you bought your house used you should have documentation of the date this was last completed by the previous owners. If you do not then make it a point to have your system checked out.
Also, you can lift the lid to the tank and check the water level. If the water level is low then you may have a clog. On the other hand if the water level is too high then you are probably going to need to have it pumped. Standing water is a sign that you may have a broken pipe.
