The team that showed up consisted of the owner's grandson and another employee. They were very professional and did a great job of finding the tank, talking me through the process and finishing up promptly. I was very impressed with their knowledge and willingness to give advice on how the tank looked, what we were doing right and how often to schedule a follow-on pumping (turns out every five years is about right for us). I would definitely use their services again!

The idiot
Harrisburg Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
showed no professionalism installing it. He left the old cooler in the yard instead of taking it to the Dump. Azzwipe That's just being lazyyyyyyyy!!! The Water pump was defective went bad in the 1st year. he put a 1/2 hp motor when we agreed to a 3/4 one. He changed it. He didn't have correct supply line. He had to reuse the one I had on there already.
The Bearings went bad this year on the fan had to replace both of them it cost me $200.00 dollars. They should last 5-10 yrs.
The SOB was a real azzwipe when I talked to him of all the problems! He needs to be Banned from plumbing.
Pulleys were all misaligned with fan. That's why the bearing s wore out.
Sincerely, Zooluum

(the owner) came out personally to assess my situation. We have a very weird septic system which empties into a field on the far side of my neighbor's house, UPHILL! It's a nightmare on a good day. When the original pump died,

came to inspect it and determine what would best suit my needs. We had a little hiccup - the guys who installed it didn't get the pipes reconnected quite tight enough, so in a couple of days they came loose and we had sewage seeping out around the tank again.

came out immediately, emptied the tank (on his dime) and fixed the situation. No problems since! Then last summer I got a notice from the health department that my septic field was failing and that there was standing sewage on the field. NOTE:

did NOT install this system, the builders used someone else. But I called him right away to come help me! He (again) came immediately and spent over 30 minutes trying to figure out why it would be leaking or backing up in the field. Turns out - It wasn't my field leaking! The field I owned wasn't the one that was actually hooked up to my house (the builder hooked the lines up incorrectly during construction)! (Again,

did not install it so none of this was their fault).

is the one who figured it out for me. After all that investigative work, I didn't actually need any work done since it wasn't my system leaking.

and

came out and looked at a big sink hole in our yard that came about while we were on a weeks vacation. They determined it was being washed out by our septic tank corroding away and all the excess water due to heavy rains we have been having this summer.

, having the experience he does, realized that our leach lines were not affected (in fact, they were not being used at all by the former septic system) so he came in much lower then all the rest with his bid, as he did not include a leach line in it. They were punctual and professional and did a great job but still need to come back (if & when our rain ever stops this summer) to level out and re-seed where they had to dig up our lawn to replace the septic and distribution tank.

we've used
Harrisburg Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
for almost 15 years, but the quality of service has fallen badly over the past couple of years. Our most recent service calls have resulted in incorrect recommendations by the service tech. First, an incorrect diagnosis calling for pumping my tanks (at least 5 years too soon), then warning of a bad water pump and most recently an incorrect diagnosis of a bad air pump, which was reported to the county. Asked for $650 to replace the pump. Since I was skeptical of the diagnosis I got a second opinion from another company. Turns out my air pump needed a 25 cent O-ring and the air filters cleaned. No problem with the water pump either, simply lines plugged at the sprinkler heads. I decided to change providers and asked for return of my annual fee (I had just renewed). Was told there were no refunds, per the terms of the contract I signed. So be it. It's OK, though, since I signed up with a new provider ( who correctly diagnosed the issues) for a 10% lower annual fee, 1/3 of the cost of the air pump that would have been necessary had I stayed at Aero Septic. Buyer beware.

These guys are awesome. They are *VERY* knowledgeable and won't lead you on or try to sell you a service that you don't need. My system was 35 years old and I've never had a problem but I did have 2 laterals that were clogged with tree roots. They worked all day at it and were able to fully clean out and restore all laterals to original working condition. I can't speak highly enough of Brendt. These days there are too many corrupt contractors that just want to sell you a new field even when you don't need one just so they can make lots of monay on you. This is not Brendt. Brendt knows his job and was the most knowledgable person of MANY contractors that I spoke too. They provided the full restoration service, which was "Full septic restoration. Inspect system, pump tank, hydrojet, map out system using cameras down the laterals in the septic field, clean out clogged laterals, refracture soil, apply chemicals to laterals'. They fully restored my system to original working condition and saved me the cost of putting a new septic field in when others kept telling me that was my only option. Thanks to Brendt I saved thousands of dollars.

I called to find out how much it would cost to fix a clogged toilet.
Harrisburg Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
quoted me a price of $250 and told me that he could schedule me for the next morning. I asked if it was possible to have someone come the same day and he said yes. Someone came between the hours of 5-7 pm. After checking out the issue, I was told that my toilet isn't clogged and the problem is that the ejector sewer pump is not working. He quoted me a price of $1,695 plus tax for labor and service. $1,695 !!! My husband and I thought it was too much and declined. I was told that I owed them $250. I told the guy that I thought $250 was too much since he really didn't do anything other than open the septic tank. He said $250 was their charge for the first hour just for coming. And that $250 was their after hours rate. I complained and told the guy that I wasn't told that $250 was an after hour rate and had I known, I would have scheduled the work during the day when someone was home. I also wasn't told that $250 was an hourly rate. I am just thankful it didn't take the guy 2 hours to open the septic tank. I was furious and left a message with the answering service for someone to call me back. I wrote a check for $230 (luckily I had a $20 coupon) so the guy could leave. Noone called me back (even the next day).
I called Roto Rooter the same night and this time asked how much they would charge if I decided not to get the job done. Roto Rooter said the estimate is free and they will only charge me if I decide to go ahead with it. The guy came the same night. Quoted me a price of $1012 plus tax with one year warranty. He was done in two hours. Job completed! Saved almost $700!
I would never go back to

! and I'm also warning my friends. They claim they have low, low prices. $1,695 is an outrageous price even when I asked what kind of part they were putting in, the guy couldn't tell me. Buyers beware!!

I noticed a small developing problem with my septic tank. I called

and they came out the next day, on-time and performed the services at the price they stated. In short, they did everything they said they would do. I'm very satisfied, will use again and would recommend their services to anyone

They pumped the septic tank in about 20 minutes. All the toilets and other shower stalls worked well except the MB bath which was still clogged. One fellow helped me out with a plunger as well as wire snake but we could not unglog it. He recommnded I call a plumber. Which I am doing now. However, I still needed to service the septic tank which I did. I also purchased the liquid chemical treament which they recommended. They were very helpful. I would use them again.
