Years ago it was owned by
Austin Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
and then
Austin Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
and all went well --and then
Austin Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
took over and it has been awful ever since. We had just renewed our contract, more out of loyalty than trust in his abilities. When he didn't show up for 2 inspections in a row and we had to call and bug him each time, we decided to terminate. The contract said to send a certified letter and we sent a certified return receipt requested letter informing him of our decision to terminate, why, and a request for the amount of money left on our contract to be returned. What was returned was our letter unopened. We called and left messages which were also not returned. The BBB is now involved and their requests have also been ignored. Do not hire this company!

I phoned and explained that the tank had not been pumped in several years and was possibly over flowing. I was quoted $400 over the phone to pump our tank.
Charges:
$95 service call (was not disclosed until work completed. Vendor could not explain what a "service charge" is and why it was being charged.)
$170 to cut foliage in order to get to tank
3 men 30 minutes
$800 to pump what he claims was 2500 gallons
competition is FAR LESS they claim they could not get up my drive with a large truck so had to bring 2 small ones. We had a 30 foot semi the week before. This claim was ridiculous.
$270 for moving the slush around (??)
5% (he could not explain this charge)
Our pump was broken and when the gentleman came to fix he told me that he had numerous complaints about this company from clients. When I checked what i was charged with the competition I had been grossly overcharged.
I complained to pop a lid, BBB, YELP and one of their suppliers. They sent me a refund of $235. Although that amount was not an equitable settlement I preferred not to argue any longer.

I called
Austin Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
on a Friday afternoon when the toilet and bathtub in our house poured dirty water into our house. He was in the middle of another job right then, but took the time to give me some ideas as to how to dislodge the clog in the line, in case it was a
Austin Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
job. It wasn't.
We scheduled
Austin Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
to come out Monday morning, And he was there right around 9am. He and his assistant
Austin Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
sent a snake-type thing through the pipe and cleared the problem area right out. He did say that there might be other things causing the clog since there was some resistance, and that the same thing might happen in a few months, but he installed a cap to the over-flow pipe that will let water into our yard instead of into our house. We agreed that he would come out and dig up the pipe at a later time to investigate the problem further, but at a time when we could plan to not need the septic tank.
Austin Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
explained things very clearly to me, asked if I had any further questions about our septic tank in particular and septic tanks in general, and charged me what I considered a very fair price. I will definitely call him back the next time I need the tank pumped out

Hard to schedule and I had to call them a couple of times, once to ask if they were coming and when. They didn't seem to know, since the truck was way up north from me. I suggested they reschedule when they have other jobs in my area. Then on re-schedule I suggested that we re-schedule again due to the icy weather and closed roads. They agreed they didn't want their trucks out on the ice.
When they finally came, the guy dug a little to expose the tops which were from 1993. One top was cracked, so he said they both needed to be replaced. He pumped the tanks and said someone would get back to me to replace the covers with the newer green ones.
I called their office and asked them to estimate cost and get out to replace the older tops. The woman who answered said that someone would call me back right away. No one ever called back. Guess they are more than busy just pumping which they are good about.
After waiting a couple of days for them to call, I looked up Ausitin Septic Supply Company, Inc. on Hwy. 620 and went there to get what was needed. They were very helpful.
I'm 70 yrs old, but decided to do it myself. Not a huge deal, but if a company advertises they 'repair septics', then they should be able to do it or at least call back and give advice on who might or where to go to get the parts to do it myself. don't bother waiting for this company to call. Just put on your big girl pants and "Do it!"

I was really impressed by their outstanding service. They were easy to get on the phone and arrived on time. They cleaned up after themselves and were very careful around some equipment I had in the yard. They were also polite with my family, which I very much appreciate. The section of sewer line they had to replace was bigger than expected, but they stuck to the original quote and did a great job.

We were supposed to get a quote. Evidently
Austin Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
sent his son who went to the wrong house then accused me of not being there even though my husband and I were up waiting since 7am in the morning. I said he must have the wrong house when I asked him to discrib the house it was indeed not my house. He said did not want to bother with people like us that waste his time.

promptly arrived at 11:30 with the rooter snake but without any of the other tools he would need to do the job.
Austin Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
did not bring rock crusher, dirt digger, pipe cutter, extension cord or a level. Without the necessary tools, the rocks had to be crushed by hand and the digging had to be done by hand which required many additional hours.

Austin Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
replaced a PVC pipe that was not broken but was not draining to septic. He replaced the pipe without a level, saying that he forgot his level at the last job but that he had a "good eye" for leveling! Laying a pipe that must drain without using a level is totally unprofessional and I fear that the line has not been adequately fixed.

One of the worst moments in my experience with the Provider was trying to pay him as he was finishing. After laughing at my attempt to guess how much to pay him and refusing to tell me exactly how much he wanted; he then stated that a plumber charges $150 per hour, even though the bulk of hours he expended were due entirely to his own fault in not bringing the right tools to the job. There was no invoice or receipt provided for the $1300 check I gave him.

The provider left a horrible mess in my yard. First, he dumped raw sewage in my yard and threw hardened cement over the fence line. PVC cutting debris along with clumps of mud and sewage were strewn all over my driveway and sidewalks.

I found Bill on Angie's List, called and spoke to Bill, set a time for him to arrive and pump our septic tanks. He not only personally answers his calls, but arrived promptly as scheduled. Thank you Bill and thank you Angie's List! Bill has been placed on our contractor list for ALL future needs!
