Hopatcong is an amazing place to call home, isn't it? First settled by the Native Americans because of the abundance of game in the area and the spring-fed lake supplying both fish and fresh water, Hopatcong would later emerge as a picturesque summer get-away resort and eventually become the year-round living community that we enjoy today.

The borough lies on the western shore of Lake Hopatcong and Bear Pond, providing its 15,000 residents with an abundance of Mother's Nature's beauty. And, those of us lucky enough to live in the Hopatcong area have the advantage of enjoying the tranquility of a small-town atmosphere while having the easy accessibility of a nearby major metropolis. 

If you live in the Hopatcong area, and are looking for a reputable, reliable, and trustworthy septic service, take a look at what we can do for you. At Aaron Septic Service & Excavation, our focus is on quality and getting the job done right the first time. That's why we've been around for so long. 


Your septic system is designed to function effectively for many years. The tank itself could even last forever, depending on what it's made of. The drainfield is another story. It won't last forever. But if the system is maintained, it should last for at least 25 years or longer.


Having your system inspected on a yearly basis is a great way to get the most out of its longevity. Here is what our team will be looking at.

  • We’ll want to make sure that the lid to the tank is in good shape, with no cracks or other signs of age. And, we'll be looking at the ground around the cap to make sure there aren't any leaks.
  • We'll check the inside of the tank to see how high the sludge level is. Once the level reaches about two-thirds to the top of the tank, it's time to get it pumped.
  • The baffles on top of the septic tank will also be checked to make sure that they are clean and operational. They are what keep the solids in your tank from getting into your drainfield.
  • The pipes leading out of the tank will also be checked to make sure there aren't any blockages.
  • And, we'll be looking at the soil on top of your drainfield to make sure it's in good shape. Pumping and Cleaning

How often your tank needs to be pumped depends both on the size of it and how many people there are in your home or business. Most septic tanks will need to be pumped and cleaned every one to three years. Having it pumped is as simple as giving us a call and we'll take care of everything.
