I first encountered
San Marcos Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
and Drains several years ago when I needed a new water heater put in on an emergency basis over the weekend. The old one had started leaking overnight and had flooded the garage.
San Marcos Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
was onsite within a few hours of calling and did a great job, and didn't gouge me on the price - which many plumbers would have done for an emergency call on a weekend. I've used them a few times since them for things like replacing valves on toilets, leaking faucets etc. I think they have been here a total of 4 times - always professional and fair pricing. When I got a call from my brother in law yesterday telling me there was a sudden leaking toilet, I asked him to simply turn off the water to the house, and I would take care of it --- knowing when I got home I would call
San Marcos Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
and have him handle it. I had no question who to call, or that I would get a fair price on another emergency service. While I hope I don't need a plumber again for as long as possible - if I do, I'll call
San Marcos Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
and drain.

I found the firm on Angie's List by searching for Septic Services. I narrowed the choice down to
San Marcos Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
because of the many positive reviews and absence of any negative reviews. I coordinated with
San Marcos Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
, the
San Marcos Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
representative, by telephone, since I was out of state and wanted the service completed before I arrived, some months later. Ms.
San Marcos Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
was pleasant and responsive. The work was performed within the time window that I requested, and without any problems or complications. A
San Marcos Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
Service worker called me on the day that the work was performed to confirm the address and general location of my Septic Tanks. I paid by credit card and was entirely satisfied with the experience. I would use their services, again, in the future.

The service by this company was excellent! The owner,
San Marcos Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
, answered the phone on the first call. I explained the situation, and unlike many other Septic servicers I called who wouldn't even show up to look at the project, he was ready and eager for the challenge and made an appointment for the next morning at 8:00. He was punctual, efficient and thorough. He definitely knew what he was doing. He completely cleaned the septic tank of all liquid and sludge (which the previous company had done inadequately), and hosed it down so it was nice and clean. There was minimal noise from his truck, and virtually no odor. The cost seemed a little high, but if you get routine service it is apparently much lower. I highly recommend

I have an engineered septic system with 2 tanks, I showed him where they were and he cleaned them both out and sprayed them down with water. When he was finished (less than 30 minutes) he told me about a screen on the top of the tank I should clean every 6 months (just spray it not remove from the tank) He also informed me if I had problem with my "water tank" who to call for service if the pump goes bad they use lifetime guarantee parts so I'll never have to pay for a pump again. I have used them in the past and am very pleased with their service and staff. I would recommend them and reuse them in the future.

I gave the service a call and
San Marcos Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
immediately picked up the phone. I told him that we were looking for a new septic system and he began guiding me through the process at a high level. They don't even provide this service (just pumping and Title V) and he was willing to spend the time with me. He provided recommendations for engineering and installation service and coached me on things to look out for. Really appreciated the honesty and willingness to talk with someone who isn't even a customer!

They arrived when they said they would. They had quoted us a different price, but that was before they found out they were going to have to make the repair. But they showed my husband what needed to be done and gave us a fair price to repair it. They also filled in the hole where they dug down to the tank and left the landscaping around the tank just like they found it. t's a dirty job, but they did it quickly and efficiently.

We have used
San Marcos Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
before and will use again.
Called him, told him what we thought was needed, he pulled the permit, came out, dug up the old drain field, and installed the new one. Worked through the rain to get it done!

Our septic alarm went off one day unexpectedly. Since we had had the tank pumped out just a year before and had a wiring repair and new float installed (by different septic companies) we were really not expecting any problems. But the alarm when off and when we investigated we saw that the holding tank was full of water....I did a quick
San Marcos Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
on Angie's list for a new septic company as they last 2 we had were a little dodgy and I called
San Marcos Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
at 9 am in the morning. They had someone out at our home by 11.
In order to fully diagnose the problem they of course had to pump out the system which their tech did cleanly and efficiently. He was then able to diagnose the problem - our pump had died and the float switch that we had paid another company to install less than a year earlier was done incorrectly - which actually
San Marcos Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
to the death of our pump (the float switch controls when the pump comes on and off - get the wrong kind installed incorrectly and your pump is endlessly cycling on and off - which shortens the life of the expensive pump dramatically.
The tech talked me through the problems and showed me all of the parts that were done incorrectly - including having wiring for the pump down in system vs having in outside of the system in a water tight box like it should have been. He promised to return later in the day with a new pump and install it. I was a little nervous as he drove away - but crossed my fingers that he would return like he said he would.
Sure enough later in the afternoon he reappeared. During the time he was gone they had pulled the original plans for our septic system with the city and discovered that the pump that we had been using was woefully inadequate for the system - so a previous owner of our house had had some repairs/new pump put in and it was the wrong one and undersized to serve the needs of our system. Mind you we have had 2 other septic systems out and had an inspection when we first moved in and no one bothered to check to see if the pump was the right one....until
San Marcos Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
figured it out.
He brought the new pump, and installed it. He brought the correct float switch and installed it. He then moved all of the wiring out of the holding tank where it never should have been and moved it into its own water tight box next to the holding tank. He cleaned up everything and was incredibly polite and knowledgeable during the entire time he was on our property. I really liked the tech and will definitely be hiring

for any future septic needs as a result.
To contrast this great service with
San Marcos Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
with our last 2 septic companies- the first company we had out last year came late, did the pumping and said we had a bad float switch. Installed a new switch (which as it turns out was the wrong type of our system and eventually cost us the pump!). The second company we had out about 6 months later said we had a wiring problem and refused to do anything with wiring and made rude comments like "I smell money" when he opened up the septic system. Ugh!

was on time, clean, neat, polite and very efficient. Really no comparison!!!

The cover was cracked and falling apart when he removed the dirt. he call his boss and by the time he was finishing up his boss was there with a new cover. Normally $65.00 but the boss told him No charge. We have used this company from the time we moved in 12 years ago. He also mentioned that all septic tank owners should not empty discharge from water Softeners (Salt) because the salt would damage the tank, only use single ply paper for the bathroom, and never clean paint equipment of brushes in the sinks. the pain gets into the leach fields plugs them up. Just wanted to pass that on.

I took a day off to meet with the provider for an estimate on Friday August 22, 2014. He was supposed to be at my house between the hours of 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM. No one showed up. I called the office number provided by Angie's List, and the person answering the phone indicated that the provider was not going to be able to meet with me because he was doing an emergency job. She said that he was going to do a drive by estimate and then they would call me back with a price. I have yet to hear from them.
