If maintained properly, a septic system can last many many years. 20 years is not uncommon. But if it is not operating properly, you may have to dig a new drainage field, even a new tank. Depends on the scope of work and the distance to your house, a new septic system may cost from $30,000 to $60,000. You may have to apply for a new license if there is no permit for a backup septic system.

Find a local septic maintenance company and they will be happy to recommend a good contractor.

I would suggest you get a couple of opinions from local experts.
I had a plumber once that quoted work that was shocking and then got three others and found that it was a very simple fix and saved thousands of dollars.

There are a lot of variables involved when it comes to a septic system. 1. Age of the system. 2. Size of the system. 3. How the system has been maintained. 4. Regulations of the township. 5. Inspector who inspects the system.
I would be happy to discuss this in detail. Feel free to contact me.
