Our History


Please CLICK HERE to be view Baltimore County Maryland's free Handbook which is an excellent overview of septic system design, maintenance, and just an overall good read for any homeowner who has a septic.


​Maintaining your septic system by periodic pumping is the most effective way to protect your investment in your home's septic and prevent future septic system repairs.


The math is simple: Paying a little bit today to regularly maintain a septic in good, working order can save many thousands of dollars in the future. As the cost of a septic replacement has risen alarmingly in MD in recent years due to B.A.T. (Best available technology) and related state regulations, there's never been a better time to keep your current system well-maintained by pumping.  Pumping your tank regularly extends its operating lifespan, saves you considerable money over the long term, and protects the environment around your home.

How Are We Different?

Over 37 years ago,


Tom Cossentino set out to build a small septic service business with a unique focus on educating his clients about how their septic systems work and helping them learn how to best care for and maintain them. With a dream, a single truck, and the unwavering support of his wife, his son, and beloved dogs (can't forget them), he built the business into something much bigger and more impactful than he ever imagined.


​Today, many years, many gallons, and many satisfied and loyal clients later, Tom's mission has not changed. We still focus on educating our clients, taking our time to do quality work, and on keeping our personal touch. We still do all of the work ourselves because building a business doesn't always mean making it big. To us, smaller is better because that is how we have gained our excellent reputation- by passionately serving the needs of one well-taken-care-of client at a time.
