We offer a variety of services for septic tanks in Lakeland, FL, from installation to repair to maintenance.

Septic Tanks, Lakeland, FLSeptic Tanks in Lakeland – Septic tanks don’t require a lot of maintenance, but a few routine procedures every few years can go a long way. Most properties that have septic systems are in rural areas, so they need a system that can process and store waste, since they are too far away from traditional sewage plants. When you flush a toilet or run water down a drain in a building that has a septic system, pipes move the waste into a large cement tank that is buried under the ground. The heavier solid waste remains at the bottom of the septic tank, while the liquid waste moves through the tank for treatment in the drain field.

Septic tanks can become overloaded, especially if there is a high utilization of drains in the home or office. At Lee Kirk & Sons Septic, we offer a variety of services for septic tanks, from installation to repair to maintenance. If any part of your septic system breaks or stops working, it can result in a backup of the sewage that can go back into the home or office, or seep into the ground around the tank. This is potentially dangerous, so regular maintenance of your septic system is crucial.

We service septic tanks and systems in Lakeland, Florida and surrounding areas. Our company has been serving clients in Central Florida since 1959. Over the years, this business has remained in the hands of family members of the original owner. We provide excellent customer service to each client to whom we provide service. Please contact us today for more information or to schedule a septic tank inspection.

Testimonial

"We have used these guys for years for our septic needs. We had a very old system, and they have always done a great job taking care of it and helping us get as much life out of it as possible. They have never tried to sell us something we didn't need, like some other companies do. Recently, our drainfield finally reached the end of its life and needed to be replaced. They did a fantastic job!!! Not only are they extremely honest, but their prices are very reasonable and affordable. They are always a pleasure to work with, and we know whatever issues pop up, we can trust them."

FAQs About Septic Tanks

We are proud to have offered high-quality septic services for so many years. We believe that part of our success can be attributed to customer education because when you understand what a septic system does and how to maintain it, you’re going to be that much more satisfied with the results of our services. Because we want to help you be informed, we have answered some frequently asked questions below.

What size septic tank do I need?
The answer to this question depends on the size of your home or building and the number of people who will be there on a daily basis since these factors will affect the volume of water you use. We’ll make sure to help you determine the right size septic tank for your needs when you call us for installation.
Why is septic tank pumping important?

Pumping is necessary for septic tanks because solid waste sinks to the bottom and remains there until we remove it. Without septic pumping, the solid waste can build to a level where it blocks the outlet pipe. This can result in sewage backups or other issues.

How often do septic tanks need maintenance?

According to the EPA, most residential septic systems should be inspected at least every 3 years and pumped every 3 to 5 years, but we can advise you on the best schedule for your situation depending on factors specific to the size of your tank and its usage. Proper maintenance and pumping help prevent your tank and overall septic system from failing early.

We do offer free estimates. To request yours, give us a call or fill out the contact form on our website.

Honest, knowledgable, family owned, lots of experience, responsible. In April 2023 Lee Kirk and Sons installed new drainfield including permits in fenced yard with pool. Despite confined space, Mike Kirk used equipment effectively and covered and raked yard after inspection. Yard has recovered to 90% in six weeks. Septic system works like new and work is warranted. Good value. I highly reccommend. One day delay in start date due to unexpected delay on previous jobsite. Thanks Mike!

I can't say enough how wonderful their service was in replacing our 41 year-old drain field. From the first time Mike (third generation owner) gave us the quote--a very reasonable price at that--to the time of install, he was a gentleman, funny, honest, & professional. I signed Mike a check to have the permit be obtained and he took care of that process without fail. We scheduled for the install midweek. He and his team came out & completed the removal of the old system and installation of the new system in just a few hours! A few days later, the inspector came out and we passed with with flying colors. Mike came back out to cover up the trenches, rake the soil flat and applied a layer of grass seed. My wife and I have been stressed for months with this whole draining ordeal and Mike's service remedied it with ease. Thank you for the outstanding customer service, pricing, and workmanship! If you need septic work done, I highly recommend getting a second or third quote and giving Lee Kirk & Sons a call--you won't regret it =) May God continue to bless you, your family, and your business for years to come.

We had our septic pumped and filter cleaned. Very professional and helpful in explaining and answering questions. Great service. Even though there were complications with irrigation being in the way of the septic covers he was very cautious and attentive to make sure they did not get damaged. Would definitely recommend and will be a returning customer.

These guys are my heroes! We rent our house, and from time to time (at least every 6 months) the lines get clogged with roots. He has identified the problem, but the landlord.....It is an emergency when all of the sudden you can't even flush your toilets, and stuff is backing up in the tubs. What do you do?? If this problem isn't fixed straight away you would have to vacate just to use the bathroom! I call them, and they come same day every time... It takes them just a few minutes and every thing is running smoothly. The price is great in my opinion. One time my landlord called a different company out......they spent hours poking and prodding (while I was on the phone with the owners etc trying to give them something to go on) and couldn't even find access. Eventually they left. It was a nightmare.Called Lee Kirk and Sons. Bam. Done. 5 minutes.

Called to get price for having my septic pumped. He gave a price & said he could come do it the next day between 3pm & 3:30pm. They got here on time, actually about 10 minutes early. They were way better & cheaper than the 1st company that we had pump for us. They definitely have repeat customers with us! Hopefully we don't have to see you guys for another 5 years though! 😉

If you are looking for a reputable company who is very knowledgeable with septic systems, Lee Kirk & Sons is the place to call. Mike Kirk is honest, loyal, and very informative! You will get good work at an affordable price. Do not go with any other company and get the job done right the first time. We purchased our home with septic issues that were to be repaired before closing. The company hired by the seller passed inspection but once we moved in our system back flowed. Mike Kirk came out and told us even though our tank was new the drane field was shot and needed to be replaced. We got a high tech system at an affordable price that works great! Thanks Lee Kirk & Sons 🙂

My parents had sewage backing up into the tubs and had overflowing toilets so they thought the septic tank was full and needed to be pumped. They called around and this service gave the best over the phone quote yesterday afternoon. They were told between 11:00am and 12:00pm today. The truck pulled in the yard ahead of schedule.Upon inspection, it was determined the problem was a clogged line between the house and the septic tank. 45 minutes and $85 later, everything is flowing as it should. Thanks guys.
