    I am curious in anyone can remember over the last couple years what they paid for a new septic. Looking at 300' of drain field and a new tank.

    Just put in a 1,250 gallon pre-cast tank with 3 - 100' laterals for $6800 in November. This was with 180' of pvc to get from the house to the tank.

    Complete job for me, I helped for the 2 days and ran skidloader and a shovel. Materials arent even half that so i was surprised it was that high. I paid for the permit, perk test and to pump the old tank on top of that

    Helping a contractor does not necessarily result in a cheaper bill. Often times they'd rather not have the "help". (not saying that is your scenario)

    I agree. In this particular instance its a 1 man crew and since i have alot of experience in a skidloader and unfortunately more with a spade and underground plumbing he asked me to help to cut down time. Unfortunately i should have just worked since i could have made more. I think it would have taken him 4 days otherwise alone

    We bought a 1250gal tank for the farm for under 1500$, $300-$400 for 300' of drain pipe. Had 3 loads of rock, 3' trench with fabric. Be some added cost in the filter and junction box and misc pipe. I actually thought it was a little steep. I could have done it but was required to have a certified installer.

    Yes you did, and that filter pipe is more expensive and more work

    I just put in a poly tank with coco-filter. Bought the "pack". (tan and filter come as 1 unit) No laterals needed with the setup. 1 hole and a minimum 4' of discharge pipe, it was a little over 8k and took about 6hrs.
