Family-Run Business for Over 40 Years

A family-run business proudly serving the Orangeville area for over 40 years, Terry Hunter Septic Tank Pumping Service was started by Cliff Hunter, Terry’s father. Terry took over and now runs the business with his son. Terry’s wife, Cheryl, is also the face of the company. She answers the phones and books the appointments. We aren’t a big corporation. We’re the local little guy with the personal, professional touch.


We deal with the messy work that nobody else really wants to deal with. Our goal is to take that chore off your to-do list. If it’s time to schedule a septic tank inspection, give us a call at either 519-941-1177 or toll-free at 1-800-582-6842 to set up an appointment!


Proper Septic Tank Maintenance Tips:

  • Pump every 3-5 years.
  • Proper usage prompts long lifespan of systems.
  • Septic systems cannot digest oils, grease or fat that may be poured down the sink or toilet. Also, no paint or solvents.
  • Flush only toilet paper. No wipes, sanitary napkins, Kleenex, paper towels, etc.
  • Regular maintenance and moderate water use will help prolong the life of your septic system.
  • A tap leaking one drop per second wastes about 10,000 litres of water per year. A leaking toilet can waste up to 20 times that amount. Saving water starts with stopping the drips.
  • Don’t drive cars, trucks or heavy machinery over your drain field; you could crush it or compact the soil around your pipes.
  • Planting trees and shrubs near your drain field is risky; roots can plug or damage your pipes.
  • Signs of an ailing septic system include:

— Grass over the drain field may become unusually green or spongy to walk on.

— Toilets, showers and sinks may take longer to drain.

— Sewage odours may become noticeable, especially after a rainfall.

— Grey or black liquids collect over drain field.

  • IF IN DOUBT – DON’T POUR IT OUT! If something doesn’t break down naturally, don’t flush it into your septic tank.


All waste collected is disposed of at a municipal sewage treatment plant.
