Septic System Service Program
4 Easy Steps to proper septic system maintenance

  1. Install a septic tank effluent filter as part of the SET UP charges.
  2. Install a riser and locking lid to bring all access lid(s) to the surface (grade) for ease of regular servicing as part of the SET UP charges.
  3. Enroll in our affordable, Septic system Service Program.
  4. Schedule septic tank pump-outs every 1-3 years, depending on number of occupants and household habits.


Set up charges:
To be part of our Septic System Service Program you are required to have:

    1. An EFFLUENT FILTER installed in the outlet baffle of the septic tank.

  1. ALL SEPTIC TANK ACCESS LID(S) MUST BE AT GRADE (not buried), using risers and locking lids for accessibility during septic system service visits.
    Note: If septic tank does not have a lid directly over the outlet baffle, a poly riser access port may have to be installed to reach the outlet baffle for filter installation and servicing.
  2. LANDSCAPE PACKAGE (optional). All extended PVC ports in the lawn are cut to grade, caps & tank lids are painted green to camouflage into the landscape.

Costs for these items is based upon an on-site evaluation of your septic tank and the overall septic system. Call our office to get individual item prices.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Once NJSMG installs a septic tank effluent filter, it requires periodic cleaning. Septic tank filters work so well at collecting sludge and scum particles that they eventually clog. Left unattended, they will no longer allow septic wastewater to leave the tank and it will start to back-up into the house. Our Septic System Service Program will give you “Peace of Mind”, knowing that professionals are taking care of this important service.
