"Told him over the phone that we were buying house and not sure where the septic tank was, so wanted to have it located and pumped/inspected. He showed up 45 minutes late, unapologetic. Found likely location of tank and halfway probed the area, but kept complaining about how dry and hard the yard was. Effort was so pitiful that I politely offered to help. He then said that only way to find it would be to flush a small electric "beacon" down the toilet and then locate with a sensor in the yard, but the sensor would cost $150 if he was unable to retrieve. Feeling that we had no choice, we said okay. Beacon was flushed, then located in yard at stopping point. Again Mr.

probed with little effort, complaining some more. Then he said that the tank was too deep (3-4'?) and too hard to hand dig, that we would have to pay for beacon (in addition to $250), and get a backhoe to remove dirt before he could pump/inspect tank, with additional charges for his return. The yard had grass, and the dirt was dry but not "harder" than any other yard, so I even politely offered to dig the hole for him. From the moment he arrived he was very impatient and irritable, but at this point he got very temperamental. I asked him why he would get so mad when I was offering to dig the hole, and it just escalated from there. He was very threatening and my female friend ended up giving him a check, despite my opposition, just to get him to leave. Because he had not accomplished anything, we tried to cancel check within 30 minutes, but he had apparently gone straight to nearest bank and cashed already. Afterwards checked with another business referral network and many complaints have been filed. He has a big yellow page ad with "guaranteed lowest price" but this is the bait - probably not much repeat business. Extremely rude and unprofessional.

"Aweful customer service. He complained about his back hurting while digging the access hole, then convinced me not to fill in the hole and leave the tank uncovered so we could drill an access hole into the top of the lid. He left the solids and sludge on our lawn, stinking up the outside for days until it dried up. Overall, the job felt rushed, like he didn't want to be there, and his recommendations were more about getting my money and quickly getting out of there than objective recommendations. On the weekend while trying to make the hole safe for a party I discovered a 1/2" gap between the lid and the septic wall. Dirt kept falling into the tank through the gap. When I called, he told me it was normal for a homemade system and to just pack it with dirt. When I said any dirt I put in there just fell through, he kept repeating it was normal. I asked him to come out and put the lid on properly, but he refused. I wound up using several shovels to shift the lid into place myself."

"There were four people doing the work and they did show up on time. The people on the phone when I called to get an estimate were very nice. They price was so cheap. I jumped at the opportunity for them to do the work for me after I asked them a few questions. They were able to answer all of my questions and they explained the process very well. They seemed to know what they were doing. They ended up doing a good job for me."
A
"Service man called to say when he would arrive. Very courteous. Worked quickly to locate and dig out the septic system. Pointed out a problem with the trap and offered two solutions. Resolved the problem with a little ingenuity and at no charge. When finished, cleaned up the area and washed down my driveway. Charge was very reasonable for this area. I would definitely call this company again.

"We had a strange leak in the backyard, and it appeared to be sewage related. I called Able, they sent out

and he not only figured out the problem and fixed it, but suggested some improvements so, when we have any issues again it will not be such a problem. Then, he gave me the contact for the health department so I can get more information on our system, since we just bought the house.

"During several days of abnormally heavy rainfall I started smelling sewage in my basement. I assumed it was the result of tank saturation from all the rain, with the contributing factor that I hadn't had my tank pumped in 6 years. I called on

was kind, courteous, respectful, and informative. As a do-it-myself homeowner, I want to make sure I understand everything necessary to maintaining all aspects of my home. A happy septic system is of crucial importance!
Asheville  Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
was wonderful about answering all my questions and was genuinely interested in offering me lots of septic maintenance information. At one point I ran into the house to get paper and a pen to start taking notes so I wouldn't forget.
As it turned out, my tank was fine, in fact
Asheville  Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
said it looked really good. There was just the right amount of solids on the bottom and the liquid level was where it should be. This tank is fairly new, installed on an existing drain line in 2007, several years after the original tank was damaged while adding an addition to the house.
Asheville  Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
pointed out something I suspected, there is not enough slope on the drain line. Obviously the result of adapting the new tank to all existing drain lines. We discussed specifics on how I could fix that myself..... something else to add to my "to do" list.
All in all, I'm very happy with the work that was done. I got a 10% discount which was nice, and

"My tank was buried approximately 5' underground. My previous septic cleanout person of 15 years plus had long ago recommended, and installed, a 6" pvc tube that descended 5' to the tank lid, and the pvc tube was glued to the tank lid, so digging down to remove the lid would be unnecessary for clean outs. The hose was just dropped down the 6" tube for cleanings and that's how I had the septic tank cleaned for 15 + years. That sounded good to me and many years ago I had that work done.
Asheville  Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
demonstrated to me that when he dropped the vacuum hose in the 6" pvc tube, the hose essentially had no mobility and just sucked up whatever was directly underneath the 6" pvc tube. Think of using your own home vacuum cleaner and you drop the hose 5 feet down a 6" tube to vacuum your living room. You can't move the hose past where it drops down and therefore, you can't vacuum other parts of the room. You're stuck hovering over a 6" area. To show just how ineffective this was,
Asheville  Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
dug down to the lid, a 20"x20" square lid, removed it, and demonstrated how he had to get on his knees, and move the vacuum hose in all directions to pull the solids to the hose. Once the area was cleaned, he then demonstrated getting on his knees with a shovel and reaching back into the tank and pulling forward a disgusting and 6' think blanket of solids that had to be pulled to the lid opening so the vacuum hose could suck it up. It was clear after watching him struggle side to side, always pulling solids towards the lid opening for vacuuming that all of my prior septic cleanups only sucked up an area directly beneath the 6" pvc tube...a completely useless exercise.
Asheville  Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
was literally cleaning out 20 years of solids that was never vacuumed out for the past 15+years in all of the prior clean outs. Wow...and I was standing there and saw it with my own eyes. It does cost to have a person dig like this and
Asheville  Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
recommended that I install 24" clean outs over a 1' riser in both the intake part of the tank and outtake part of the tank to make future cleanings more effective and involve less digging. This large opening (instead of the sickly 6" pvc tube) in both locations would allow a clean out such as demonstrated by
Asheville  Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
..where using a 6' shovel, the solids can be pulled from all directions to the opening for clean out. I absolutely saw the need for this and bought the two 24inch riser kits, each lid screwed in about 8 locations to the two 1 foot risers. My outtake had never been cleaned as it has to be accessed through another opening in the tank that my previous clean out person never even lifted the lid all these years. The total add on for the 2 riser kits was $375. I also replaced the sanitary tee for $125 as the one in the outtake portion was completely rotted and fell apart into crumbs when
Asheville  Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
touched it with his shovel. So my total for the written inspection and report, plus stress test, pumping out 20 years worth of solids, two 24" riser kits and a new sanitary tee in the outtake was $900. I will never, ever use anyone but
Asheville  Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
to clean out my tank again. They are fabulous! And ask for
