Excellent4.6 Based on 256 reviews from review us onJosh GellerJosh Geller ★★★★★ Francisco came out to do our annual inspection. He was very friendly and knowledgeable and gave me good info about how my system worked and how to maintain it. I would definitely recommend Baker Septic to anyone and ask for Francisco to do your job!Peggy ParkerPeggy Parker ★★★★★ All I can say is the company was faced with a few extra, unexpected hurdles -- all from my end -- and managed to clear them with ease. This was my first time ordering service and I had a chaotic morning that could have resulted in me not being able to meet the truck, but I called the office to see if they could nail down the arrival (they offer a four-hour window) so they contacted the driver and texted me right back. Once here, Aaron was that perfect combination of a professional -- he answered my questions quickly with extra relevant info -- who has a happy outlook on life.In other words, he was a pleasure to have here. He offered further information related to my earlier questions and took five minutes to answer questions about the drain field after the tank was pumped. He finished sooner that we expected. At the front end, the office gave me the range of prices, and Aaron elaborated on that once he saw my system.I am happy with the price and especially happy with the quality of work Aaron and the Baker Septic team did. I highly recommend them.George MaddenGeorge Madden ★★★★☆ One of Baker Septic’s employees, Francisco G. was able to accomplish what several other septic companies could not, locating a second tank where others had failed. He proved to be an exceptionally hard worker despite a condensed timeline. There seemed to be a disconnect between him and management, however. Despite an appointment specifically to clean the septic tanks, they sent him out to simply locate and inspect, hence the lost star.Nathan KrammeNathan Kramme ★★★★★ Francisco with Baker Septic really helped my family and I with a septic failure. Me not being the most familiar with septic systems not to mention the complexity of our situation, he provided superior service with knowledgeable advice on how to move forward that gave my family and I peace of mind knowing we would be taken care of.Diane MannDiane Mann ★★★★★ Thank you for sending Rob out! He had my drain cleared in no time at all. 😊 He was professional and very patient with me. I was his last appointment at the end of what was probably a very long day. Yet I was treated with the same care as the first appointment. What a great employee. Rob is why I will call Baker Septic again . 🙂Leslie AshLeslie Ash ★★★★★ Needed septic inspection. Francisco G. kept us informed on time he would arrive. Explained what he was doing and his findings so we understand more how the system works.Found a problem, explained what needed to be done to correct and options for cost containment. ( We had pumping scheduled but repair requires empty tanks so he recommended holding pumping until day of repair so we did not incur second pumping charge, having area dug out prior to repair crew arrival).Received call first thing the next morning from Michael, reviewing findings and to go over estimate. He cancelled pumping so we could review and schedule repair.In this day and age, finding companies with employees who treat their clients with such patience and honesty is priceless!Thank you so very much.Jessica McPhailJessica McPhail ★★★★★ Francisco is very personable, he greeted me and struck up a conversation. He was very pleasant to talk to and very efficient at his task… he informed me of the process and what he needed and left everything very clean for such a dirty job!!! lol. He even put down cardboard on the driveway where he knew the pump truck would drip oil!Much appreciated!!! Thank youDavid BoleyDavid Boley ★★★★★ We were lucky to have Fransisco visit our home when we had a septic tank issue. He arrived the same day we called and went above and beyond with creative problem solving to fix our issues. This is exactly the kind of skilled tradesman you want when you need real help, he was the opposite of just a nameless employee punching the clock. 5 stars all the way! Thank you Baker Septic Plumbing and thank you Fransisco!Doug CrossDoug Cross ★★★★★ Francisco was so friendly and knowledgeable! He explained how our septic system works and what he was doing at each step of the pumping/inspection process. He offered great tips on maintaining our system and his glove game was on point! I feel so much more confident with our system than before he came out. I wouldn't call anyone else for my future septic needs! Thank you!Danielle MDanielle M ★★★★★ Francisco came out on a Sunday when we had a septic emergency! This is our first experience living with a septic tank. We called Baker Septic and the friendly dispatcher sent him out. He was friendly, informative and very knowledgeable. We look forward to using their services for many years! Thank you for the learning experience:)Jonathan FayJonathan Fay ★★★★★ Francisco Gomez was extremely friendly, helpful and professional. He did a great and amazing job of taking care of everything in a super careful way went out of his way to make sure that the driveway and the route to the septic tank was kept clean and did an amazing job on the pump out and then advising me on septic care. I would highly recommend Francisco Gomez and Baker septic to pump your tank. The staff on the phone was very friendly and efficient. They got me scheduled quickly. I have used them in the past, and this type of experience is very typical of their high-quality service.js_loader


  • DO conserve water to avoid overloading the system.
  • DO use substitutes for household hazardous waste.
  • DO learn the location of your septic tank and drain field.  Keep a sketch of it handy with your maintenance records for service visits.
  • DO cover the drain field with a grass cover to prevent erosion and remove excess water.
  • DO keep your septic tank covers easily accessible for inspections and pumping.  The time savings can be essential in case of an emergency.  Install risers if necessary.
  • DO keep a detailed record of repairs, pumpings, inspections, permits issued, and other maintenance activities.
  • DO divert other sources of water, like roof drains, house footing drains, and sump pumps, away from the septic system.  Excessive water keeps the soil in the drain field from naturally cleansing the wastewater.
  • DO have your septic tank inspected regularly; annually for systems with any sort of pump, every three years for a gravity feed system.
  • DO call a professional whenever you experience problems with your system or if there are any signs of system failure.
  • Do have your septic tank pumped on a regular basis.  Tanks should be pumped every three to five years. Depending on usage, it may be necessary more or less often.  We can review your system and specific needs with you at any time.



  • DON’T flush material that will not easily decompose such as hair, diapers, cigarette butts, matches feminine hygiene products, condoms, egg shells, coffee grounds, nut shells, paper towels or rags
  • DON’T wash or flush medicines or hazardous chemicals like paint, paint thinner, motor oils and bleach into system.  They kill the bacteria needed to decompose wastes in the septic tank and drain field.
  • DON’T drive over the septic tank or drainfield.
  • DON’T flush any type of flushable wipes.  Many septic tank pumpers and city public works employees are finding they don’t break down and can cause damage to the system.
  • DON’T plant anything over or near the drain field except grass.  Roots from nearby trees or shrubs may clog and damage drain lines.
  • DON’T dig in your drain field or build anything over it; or cover the drain field with a hard service such as concrete or asphalt.  Your beneficial bacteria need oxygen to break down the sewage.
  • DON’T allow backwash from home water softeners or condensate from an air conditioner or heat pump to enter the septic system.
  • DON’T enter your tank.  Any work to the tank should be done outside.  Gases that can be generated in the tank and/or oxygen depletion can be fatal.
