Lake Hopatcong Septic Service

Lake Hopatcong is New Jersey’s largest freshwater lake offering residents and visitors outstanding boating, sailing, kayaking, swimming, fishing, water sports and more year-round. Nine miles long, three miles across and as deep as 65 feet, Lake Hopatcong is surrounded by the townships of Jefferson and Roxbury, and the boroughs of Mount Arlington and Hopatcong. The exact origin of the name Hopatcong is unknown, though it is most commonly attributed to the Lenape Indian word for “stone water,” or “stone over water”. Lake Hopatcong flourished in the 1920s, and many famous people owned property on the lake, including Vaudeville’s Joe Cook, who owned Sleepless Hollow in Davis Cove; Vaudeville’s Owen McGiveney (father to Maura McGiveney), who owned a house in the River Styx section for more than 30 years; actress Lotta Crabtree, who owned the Attol Tryst home in Mount Arlington; and inventor and chemist Hudson Maxim. Their presence attracted many famous visitors, including Babe Ruth, Bud Abbott, Bert Lahr, and Milton Berle.

Septic Tank Pumping in Lake Hopatcong

Once at your location, our qualified and experienced technicians visually inspect your septic system and thoroughly clean it. We then discuss the usage of the system and proper septic tank maintenance.  We will also inform you if our visual inspection identified other factors that can affect your system’s performance, such as deteriorated baffles, ground water infiltration, cracked lids, a tank level that is too high, or if it looks like solids have been pumped to the drain field.
