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

My Septic Alarm Is Going Off – What Do I Do?

Hearing your septic alarm sounding can be unnerving, but it’s critical not to panic. The septic alarm serves as an early warning system that something is not quite right with your septic system. This could mean that the water level in the septic tank is too high, there is a problem with the pump, or there may be an issue with the electrical system connected to your septic system. But remember, an alarm doesn’t necessarily mean a full-blown septic emergency is imminent. It is, however, a signal that you need to take immediate action.

First and foremost, minimize the water usage in your home. This means avoiding laundry, dishwashing, showers, and other activities that use a significant amount of water. Reducing water use can help prevent further problems by reducing the strain on your septic system.

Next, check the breaker box to see if a circuit breaker has tripped. If it has, resetting the breaker may solve the problem. However, if the alarm continues to sound, do not attempt to troubleshoot the issue yourself. Septic systems are complex and attempting to resolve the problem without professional assistance could lead to more serious issues, such as property damage or exposure to harmful waste.

Instead, call Baker Septic Tank Pumping as soon as possible. Remember, we are always on standby, ready to respond to your septic needs. Our professionals are trained to handle all types of septic issues and will arrive promptly to assess the situation. They will then provide the necessary solutions to address the problem, always communicating clearly about the necessary steps and costs involved.

While you wait for our team to arrive, it’s important to refrain from using any drain or toilet in your property. Continued use of the septic system can worsen the situation and lead to more extensive damage.

In the meantime, take a moment to jot down any unusual occurrences you’ve noticed. For example, was there a strange odor before the alarm went off? Have you observed slow drains or gurgling noises? Any information you can provide will help our technicians in diagnosing the issue.

Please remember, it’s crucial to address a sounding septic alarm promptly. Ignoring the alarm can lead to a full-blown septic emergency, including sewage backups and system failures. With Baker Septic Tank Pumping on your side, you don’t have to face this problem alone. We are committed to providing fast, efficient service to keep your septic system functioning properly. Trust us to handle your septic alarms and any subsequent septic needs.

Signs That You Are Having A Septic Emergency

Knowing the signs of a septic emergency can save you time, money, and a lot of unnecessary stress. Early detection allows for prompt action, which can significantly mitigate potential damages and associated costs. Let’s delve into some of the telltale signs that you might be dealing with a septic emergency.

  1. Foul Odors: A strong, unpleasant smell emanating from your drains, toilets, or even your yard can indicate a problem with your septic system. This could mean that the tank is full and needs pumping, or it could point to a more serious issue, such as a leak or blockage.
  2. Slow Drains: If your sinks, showers, or toilets are draining slowly, it might signal a blockage in your septic system. While a single slow drain might merely indicate a localized issue, multiple slow drains usually suggest a problem with your septic tank or drain field.
  3. Sewage Backup: One of the most obvious and severe signs of a septic emergency is sewage backing up into your sinks, tubs, or toilets. If you notice this, cease using all water in the house and call Baker Septic Tank Pumping immediately.
  4. Water Pooling on the Ground: If you notice standing water or unusually wet areas around your septic tank or drain field, it could be a sign of a septic system malfunction. The pooling water could be a result of an overfull tank, a break in the system, or a failure of the drain field.
  5. Gurgling Noises: Hearing gurgling sounds in your pipes when you flush the toilet or drain the sink is not normal. These noises could indicate a blockage or another issue with your septic system.
  6. Green, Lush Grass Over the Drain Field: While green grass might usually be a good sign, if it’s over your drain field, it could mean trouble. If the grass in this area is greener or more lush than the rest of your yard, it might indicate that your septic tank is leaking.
  7. High Water and Sewage Levels: If your septic alarm is sounding, it might be due to high water or sewage levels in the tank. As we mentioned earlier, a sounding alarm doesn’t necessarily mean a full-blown septic emergency is imminent, but it does mean you need to take immediate action. Contact Baker Septic Tank Pumping for assistance.

Remember, these signs should never be ignored. If you notice any of these warning signs, it’s essential to reach out to a septic professional promptly. At Baker Septic Tank Pumping, we’re always on standby, ready to help when you need us most. Don’t let a potential septic problem escalate into a full-blown emergency. Be proactive and contact us at the first sign of trouble. Your septic system – and your peace of mind – will thank you.

The Importance of Prompt Response to Septic Emergencies

Reacting quickly when a septic emergency strikes is of paramount importance. This isn’t merely about addressing an inconvenient issue; it’s about minimizing the potential damage to your property and reducing the likelihood of expensive septic system repairs or replacements. Additionally, rapid response can help avert potential health risks that may arise due to exposure to untreated sewage.

At Baker Septic Tank Pumping, we deeply understand the significance of immediate action when it comes to septic emergencies. Septic system malfunctions are more than a simple nuisance. They can cause significant damage to your property, disrupt your daily routine, and even pose a threat to your health and the health of your loved ones.

When a septic system failure occurs, the risk of waste overflowing and seeping into your property can be high. This not only damages the property but can also contaminate groundwater, making it unsafe for consumption. This is why a swift response to septic emergencies is essential to prevent these situations from occurring.

Also, leaving a septic problem unattended can lead to more severe issues down the line. Simple problems can escalate into significant damage that requires extensive and costly repairs. In severe cases, a complete replacement of your septic system might be necessary. Immediate attention to septic emergencies reduces the risk of these problems escalating.

Furthermore, sewage backups can expose you and your loved ones to harmful bacteria, viruses, and parasites. These can lead to serious health conditions, especially in children, the elderly, or those with weakened immune systems. Reacting promptly to a septic emergency can help prevent these health risks and keep your family safe.

At Baker Septic Tank Pumping, we are always ready to respond to your septic emergencies at a moment’s notice. We understand that time is of the essence during these stressful situations. Therefore, our team of professionals is always on standby, prepared to deliver prompt and efficient service whenever you need us.

The significance of a quick response during a septic emergency goes beyond the immediate issue at hand. It’s about minimizing damage, reducing costs, and most importantly, safeguarding the health of you and your loved ones. At Baker Septic Tank Pumping, we stand committed to delivering this prompt response, offering you peace of mind during these stressful situations.
