Having a home that relies on a septic tank rather than being connected to city or county plumbing comes with some benefits. For example, it's more environmentally friendly and cost-effective.

However, when it comes to installing, emptying, repairing, maintaining, or replacing a septic tank, you need to hire the right contractor for the job. Otherwise, you could end up having problems down the road.

We're here to help make your decision process easier. Keep reading for our top tips on choosing between septic contractors in Calgary and within the Foothills region.


Pricing is one of the most important factors to consider when choosing a septic service company. While it's important not to choose the cheapest option available to you, you also don't want to be overcharged for parts and services.

We recommend reaching out to your local septic contractors to get an estimate for your home. For example, you can get a free estimate from High Country Vac Services and are guaranteed affordable options.


When choosing a contractor, ask about the septic services they offer. Not all Hydrovac companies in the Calgary or Foothills region offer repair and replacement services.

Additionally, inquire about emergency services. Will they be available in the middle of the night if your septic tank starts backing up? For this reason, High Country Vac Service offers 24/7 emergency services, so you know you're always taken care of with trained staff.

Finally, ask about preventative maintenance. Will the septic contractor help educate you on septic system maintenance? Do you know how often it should be emptied? Get these answers before deciding on who you can trust. Our team works to create long-term relationships by educating each customer on their septic tanks.


In the service industry, credibility is everything. When choosing septic contractors in Calgary, spend some time researching each company's customer reviews and testimonials. These will tell you everything you need to know about how a company operates, treats its customers, and more.

High Country Vac Services have fantastic customer reviews, averaging 4.8 out of 5 stars. When reading company reviews, think about the key factors you're looking for: quality service, affordability, safety, availability, etc. This will help you choose a reputable company that will deliver quality service.


Finally, while it's important to recognize that every company has to start from the beginning, experience and reputation are essential. You may feel more comfortable hiring septic contractors with years of experience and several certifications.
