Fantastic. Removed grass & lids then removed & cleaned filter. Pumped out septic & replaced all pieces. Cut off pipe as it was too long & nearly hit back wall. Replaced all items. Suggested we invest in a lid that would make access easier so we can clean our filter every 6 months. Will call back at a later date to get cost for them to do this for us as we never even knew there was a filter in the tank. Great service & response. Punctual, professional & genuine.

The guys were on time, early in fact. They knew what they were doing and understood that I was pumping as a preventative measure. (Note: do not use CostCo

brand toilet paper in a septic system. The basement lift station had been clogged with this paper and I wanted the rest of it out of the whole system). Unfortunately, when done, they let the hose drain on the ground. They said this was "normal" but not from any of my previous experience. My golden retriever ran out of the house and quickly found the hose drainage. Of course, she rolled completely in the black mess. That meant a cold hose bath for the dog and time I did not have to spare. It was not a happy experience.

Had to start looking for a new inspection provider due to my previous provider raised their price for the required 3 annual inspections. So I looked to Anglies list for service providers. I found All Septic s was offering the annual inspection for under a hundred dollars a year. Which I found to be very responsible for what is required.
Outstanding service. Contacted promptly after buying the maintenance contract at the beginning of the year. Service was not required until June. Was contacted prior to the tech showing up to do the inspection and asked what would be a good day and time. Tech showed up on time, was very friendly and explained the entire process. Once he saw that it was aerobic septic system, he needed to call his boss, due to the fact that they don't normally service this type of system. After the call was completed I was informed that they would honor the contract. Very impressed, they was no problems and they stood behind the contract that I bought.. Hope to continue this service with them for years to come.

No problems with their service and they showed up on time and I was provided with a report on the condition of our system. My only comment is that they should provide a handful or two of grass seed to reseed the area disturbed by their work. we've used this company since we built our home in 1993.

I contacted them because I thought I was the company that did the initial inspection (as part of the house sale) was over pricing the replacement of the boxes. They came quickly, confirmed the need to change the boxes, and accomplished the work within 2 days at 2/3 the price of the other company. They were careful in their work and cleaned up afterwards. I would definitely use them again.

Family company. Owner and son are really nice guys and have been in the business a long time. They came to the house twice. The first time they were on time but the second time they were 45 minutes late. Other than that they were great and would recommend them to anyone.

Nolls extended our drainfield 12 ft, moved the connection tees, and extended the stone base on the far end all per the design engineer's upgrade detail. Nolls was far cheaper than several other quotes, and they did it all in 1-1/2 days where the others were going to take a week (which meant we couldn't use our water or bathrooms that whole time).

were great, honest, up-front guys to talk to and deal with. They learned their trade from their dad,

. They knew the township's engineer and the septic design firm engineer so they were able to make the calls to have the inspections done and have any design
questions worked out for a smooth install. On top of all of this, they did this work on a very difficult, steep, narrow property which made hauling stone and moving equipment all the more difficult.

Excellent service. We moved here two years ago and previous owners never had it done, so 13 years total.

came out, found the tank VERY quickly. I had many questions since we came from NY and city sewer. He explained everything.

They had to dig a bit, but the entire process only took 45 minutes. All of the dirt and grass was replaced and it looks as good as when they came. Immaculately clean.... Even the truck was sparkling.

I HIGHLY recommend them. Thank you

This could not have turned out worse. I have lived in my house for 15 years and have worked with dozens of contractors during that time. I have NEVER refused to pay a contractor until these people ruined my front yard and then disappeared. I refused to pay so they took me to court and blatantly lied to the judge about almost everything that occurred. This included denying that we had multiple conversations about the job that I had well documented (notes with dates, times, names and what was discussed/agreed to). The judge had no option other than to split the bill down the middle and compromise. In my opinion, this company is owned and run by a group of unprofessional, unethical people who need money so badly they have to lie to get it.

On time and performed service as expected. A little pushy with the recommended powder sales. Did not appear overly experienced. A little pricey compared to others.
