 Are you looking at building on property that would require a septic system and you’re wondering, “How much does it cost to install a septic tank?” Maybe you already have a septic system but it needs replacing and you’re worried about how much money you’re going to have to invest to keep it working well for you.

While the cost of your septic system will depend on factors specific to your home and your family’s needs, we’ve included some general guidelines below to give you an idea of how much it could cost for septic system installation.

What is Included in a Septic System?

Some people ask, “How much does a septic tank cost?” when they really want to know how much an entire septic system costs. Others just want to replace their current tank.

If you choose to install or replace an entire septic system, you’ll get:

  • A septic tank
  • Piping running from your home to the septic tank
  • A drainfield
  • Drain gravel
  • All pumps, etc. necessary to make your septic system fully functional
  • Permits
  • Installation of the system

If you’re not sure what you need, our experts can help. We can evaluate your system and let you know what needs to be replaced and how much it would cost you to do that replacement. You can call us anytime to get help choosing the best option for you and your family.

How Much is a Septic Tank?

The cost of your septic tank depends on:

  • The type of tank you need
  • The size of tank you want

Installation costs depend on:

  • Whether we need to excavate to install the new tank
  • The type of soil you have

In general, replacing an existing septic tank (in the same spot) runs about $7,000 – $12,000, depending on the tank size and location. If you’re getting a whole new system, you should expect to pay between $35,000 and $45,000, including the construction costs, engineering costs, and surveying costs. Prices for complicated systems or systems in difficult to reach locations could cost more.
