did I get 'taken' on a septic repair?
Had company come out to pump tank. Had to dig down about 2' and reached outlet baffle. The baffle is concrete, and I was told it is getting soft and needs to be replaced. Was charged $1750 to replace it with a white 'poly' pipe. Was charged $195 (very reasonable, I thought) for pumping and $450 to hydrojet drain field. The $1750 seems excessive, but had nothing to compare it to, and did not want to have problem with septic failure, so had it done.
