Mr. Rooter Plumbing: Septic Cleaning and Pumping for Syracuse-area Homes

At Mr. Rooter® Plumbing, we know a clean septic system or a grease trap is a healthy one. That's why we advise all our customers in Syracuse, Auburn, Utica and beyond to get their septic systems cleaned every 3-5 years.

Pumping and cleaning is part of a regular maintenance cycle and not only helps avoid unpleasant breakdowns, it can add also years of life to your home's septic system or your business’ grease trap. Call us today to schedule your appointment!

Signs Your Septic Tank Needs to Be Pumped

While regular cleaning or pumping is recommended, we understand for many homeowners this is not a realistic option. If you've gone a few years without pumping your septic system, there are a few tell-tale signs your tank may be nearing capacity.

A strong sewage odor in your yard is a dead giveaway. A backed-up toilet or drain that can't be unclogged is another sign of trouble and so is standing water in your yard. Lastly, many newer septic systems will have a built-in alarm that either flashes or makes a noise when your tank is almost full.

If you notice signs of trouble, don't delay in getting the service you need. Mr. Rooter Plumbing offers full septic pumping services to New York homes.

Why Septic Pumping Is Important

  • Like any part of the home, your septic system requires regular maintenance to stay running its best. Because it handles human waste, it is especially important to ensure your septic system is well-maintained.
  • If you have ever experienced an overflowing or broken septic system, you know how unpleasant the smell can be.
  • In addition to smelling bad, septic waste contains illness-causing bacteria, nitrogen and phosphorus that can contaminate your groundwater. This can cause health problems for your family, pets, livestock or garden.
  • Regular maintenance saves you money in the long run. Compare the cost of septic pumping every three to five years (about $200-$300) with the replacement of a neglected unit ($4700-$6200 or more).

Despite the compelling reasons for getting your septic tank inspected and pumped regularly, a large percentage of homeowners fail to perform this vital service. Don’t be one of them — call Mr. Rooter Plumbing to book your appointment today!
