    I’m so sorry for your loss, Diane. Perhaps if you call the last company who emptied your septic tank they’d be able to locate it for you?

    Good suggestion from FrugalFamilyTimes, if you can't remember the name of the company, perhaps go through some old receipts , checks, bank statements, or credit card statements. They might remind you or give you a connection of when it was done and who serviced it. Maybe a neighbor or a family member might know or can help you.

    Additionally here are some steps that might be of value to you:

    So sorry you lost your husband. As long as you can her his voice and see his face, he will be with you.

    Hi Diane: So sorry to hear of your loss. I would imagine that you have some idea where the septic is. This is a job for professionals. If you have had it cleaned before, call the same company, they may know where it is. If not, if you can point the new company in the general direction of where you think it is, they can find it. They are very good at doing that. Again, my deepest sympathy for your loss.

    I'm so sorry for your loss! I agree with the last comments any septic cleaning company will be able to find it for you.

  • I'm so sorry, Diane. You don't need to use the old company or even know the general area of the tank. We moved into a very old home with no idea of either and all three companies we called for estimates were able to locate it in minutes with their tools. I hope that helps.

  • Sorry for your loss. I would maybe see if a neighbor or someone close by can help, otherwise I am sure you could call in a company to help you.

    Can you just replace the brick? And if you need the septic tank cleaned, you would need to call a septic tank company to suck it out and clean it.
