Septic + Utilities


They say you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone-- and that’s especially true when it comes to septic. If you’ve been avoiding your septic tank replacements, repairs, or new installations, don’t wait until an emergency forces you to enhance your septic situation.

With two licensed septic installers on the team, septic tank replacements are our specialty. In most cases, tank replacements are up and running within four hours.

We specialize in new and replacement systems, including Mound, Advantax, Nu Water, Gravity Flow, and Sand Filter systems. Not sure which system is right for you? We offer free estimates, and we’ll go over the pros and cons of the different systems, making a recommendation for the type that will suit your needs, location, and budget.

New Septic System Installations

Spencer’s Trucking & Excavating has two certified septic installers on staff. Those two employees are licensed to complete new septic system installs in Cowlitz, Lewis, and Wahkiakum counties. We’ll set up a free consultation with you to go over your septic tank system options and will provide a free estimate for your consideration. We’re confident that you’ll be impressed by our competitive pricing and extensive experience.

Septic Tank Replacements

Our certified septic installers are authorized to complete septic tank replacements in Cowlitz, Lewis, and Wahkiakum counties as well as the surrounding area. If your home or commercial building is located within a 100-mile radius of our shop in Kelso, we’ll travel to you to replace your septic tank.

When you choose Spencer’s Trucking & Excavating for your septic tank replacement, you can rest easy, knowing you’ve chosen the best in the business. Once you’ve booked our team for the job, we will secure all necessary permits, arrange for the pumping of your old tank, and dispose of it properly. Then, we’ll get to work installing your replacement tank. Don’t worry about being out of commission for too long. Our team will have your replacement tank up and running within about four hours!

Septic Tank Repairs

You may not need a septic tank replacement-- yet. With regular repairs and maintenance, you can increase the lifespan of your septic tank. When you request a free estimate, we’ll let you know whether your septic tank needs a repair or a replacement.

Install and Repair Drain Fields

A functioning drain field is the key to a functioning septic system. The buried, perforated pipes remove wastewater and prevent overflow of the septic tank. The team at Spencer’s is certified to install and repair drain fields that will keep your system functioning properly long-term. We’re also trained to install risers for easy pumping.

Perc Hole Testing

Choosing the right location for a septic system is an important decision. We complete percolation tests (often referred to as perc tests) to ensure your chosen location is the right spot for your septic system. Perc holes test the water absorption rate of your soil-- a requirement by many jurisdictions before permits are granted.

    Yearly Filter Cleans

    Did you know that yearly septic filter cleanings can increase the amount of time before a septic pump is required? Without proper cleanings, solids build up in the tank and the tank’s holding capacity is diminished. Save money and increase the lifespan of your tank when you choose yearly filter cleans.

    While we don’t offer septic pumpings, we complete a full inspection of your tank with every cleaning. No septic surprises here! We will give you an estimate of how long until your tank needs to be pumped.

    Utility Ditches

    There are specific regulations regarding utility ditches. The separation between gas and electric lines must be maintained. To stay compliant, it’s important to choose an excavator who understands the regulations. Spencer’s has built our business on excavations, and we follow every law to the letter to keep you safe.

    Need water and sewer tapping, too? Just let us know!

    Whether you need a new septic system or an old one replaced, the team at Spencer’s Trucking & Excavating has the tools, the certifications, and the experience to get your septic system functional. Give us a call and set up an appointment to get your free estimate today!
