customer reviews


They did a real good job with my mound system, and they were reasonably priced. I decided to reseed the mound instead of having sod put down, and they were very helpful and telling me what was the best way to do that. I would definitely recommend them and use them again in the future.


Needed a complete septic replacement, the tank was still good but everything else failed and needed replacing. Blackwater did everything, pulled the permits, dug out and replaced everything, did all the actual work in 3 days, inspection included. These guys work hard and get the job done. I hope to never need this done again, but if I do.... I recommend them. Thanks Blackwater.


Very professional and friendly service. Worked quickly but was thorough. Very knowledgable and offered advice to help prevent the problem in the future. Would definitely recommend their services.

FAQ: how do septic tanks work?

Living in an area without a city sewer system means that you have what is known as a septic system. Normally found in rural areas, septic systems treat wastewater from your different parts of your home: kitchen drains, the laundry room, and the bathroom.

Septic systems are composed of two parts: the septic tank and the drain field. Your house has one main drainage pipe. After the wastewater runs through this pipe towards the septic tank, it divides into in three separate parts. Solid waste goes to the bottom, crease and oil rise to the top, and liquid wastewater leaves the septic tank and flows into the drain field.  As the water filters through the drain field, it goes into the soil, is treated, and eventually is discharged into the groundwater.

FAQ: I've never had my septic tank checked. Should i get it inspected?

Septic tanks require routine inspections and maintenance to ensure it is running properly. Without this, many problems can occur and repairs can be costly. If you are unsure if your septic tank needs an inspection, here are a few indicators that it's time: 

  • Foul odors coming from your drains can indicate a full tank. 

  • A slow drain in your kitchen and bathroom most likely means that something is off with your septic tank.

  • If you notice pooling water in your lawn around the drain field, this could be a septic issue. Wastewater on your lawn can cause numerous issues to your health and environment. 

  • If you have sewage backup entering your home, you need a septic tank inspection. 

  • It is suggested that you have your septic tank inspected once every 5 years. If more than 6 people live with you, a septic tank is recommended every 2-3 years.

FAQ: how do i know if i'm on septic or sewer?

A septic tank is typically easy to identify; you'll spot a rectangular or cylindrical lump in the ground. You can also take a look at your utility bills to see if you're paying for a sewer system. If you're not being billed for a sewer independently, you water or garbage bills may include a sewer fee.
