San Marcos Septic Tank Maintenance Articles

Sample Reviews


This was an emergency called on a Saturday. The main drain line in the house was backed up with standing water in the shower, toilets unable to flush. A

of drain opener had provided only temporary resolution. Since it had been about 3 years since the septic tank had been emptied, it was logical to believe that emptying the tank would be the solution. Chapman was the 2nd choice, as the first choice was unable to respond that day. Chapman agreed to service, and charged extra due to the emergency. That extra charge was unfortunate but I had no choice.
Chapman arrived on time. Oddly enough, the service guys had to borrow my adjustable wrench to open the septic tank's cover. Interesting, I assumed they would have brought their own tools. But at least they are here on short notice on a Saturday. After the septic tank was drained, the main drain line appeared to be fine, as everything in the house worked. Problem appeared to be resolved. The service guys suggested something might still be wrong with the tank's drain field. I disagreed because there was nothing to support this idea. They still wrote on my invoice "bad drain field" even through they have nothing to support this idea.
An hour later, the main drain line backup again. Re-checked the tank, and it was differently empty. Empty tank, but still the mainline is not draining? That can not be the drain field. Thus the problem had to be in the mainline. Called a plumber to snake out the mainline, and swoosh! the mainline drained ! Problem resolved for real.
Chapman : great and draining a septic tank, but not so good at resolving the overall problem.

Great! What a terrific, responsive guy

was. It was a pleasure working with him. After waiting weeks for the buyer to make up his mind, suddenly, we are to service the septic system and close on the home in less than 2 weeks. We made arrangements for
San Marcos Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
to do the work, they would come on Thursday. It rained all day Thursday, Mr
San Marcos Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
called, and told us he would be here at 11am on Sunday. He arrived right on time, was efficient and neat in completing the work- even tolerated the prospective buyer hanging over his shoulder throughout his job.

We were very pleased with the service provided by

was very responsive to our initial contact and scheduled the work quickly. He was proactive in ensuring that we got the permit issued quickly so the work could start. Once the work started, his team was professional and they took pride in doing the job right. Once the work was completed and inspected, the team did a nice job of filling and cleaning up the work area.

We were just about to leave for a family function when my husband heard the toilet in our first floor bathroom making gurgling noises. I jumped on Angie's List and looked up cesspool service and we called
San Marcos Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
. He wasn't able come last night but said he would be here first thing this morning. He arrived at 8:30 am and diagnosed the problem quickly and efficiently. He pumped the cesspool, snaked it from inside and poured in chemicals to prevent future issues. We had forgotten to mention that we found him here but when he asked how we had found his services as he was leaving, he called us 15 minutes later and told us he would be sending us a check for the 10% discount! He was courteous, punctual and professional and there was no nonsense involved in the entire process. Hopefully, we won't need his services again but if we do, I would definitely call him again and I would unequivocally recommend him!

and I immediately hit it off as we started discussing permaculture and other natural gardening and food cultivation topics (

, food forests, hugelkultur). He is extremely knowledgeable about not only septic systems in general, but also about how it might affect the surroundings, placement of future fruit trees and gardens, etc. He suggested a genius idea about something unrelated to the septic that had my wife and I scratching our heads with, 'why didn't we think of that?'

the foreman and crew came out on the scheduled day and immediately began the excavation work. He and the other operator were *arteeeests*. Amazing control of that heavy machinery. Everything went very smoothly and all the while they were very open about any questions I had and about the process, maintenance steps, etc.

did upsell the final soil type but he only suggested it after I expressed interest in planting fruit trees in between the drainfield pipes (apparently this is fine to do with LPD systems) and was very upfront on what that would do to the final price.
I found

to be very reasonable, upfront, and professional throughout the entire process. I have no qualms about recommending them, and am actually speaking with them now about some unrelated excavation/permaculture work. I also can't imagine them giving anyone anything other than an A+ experience. Highly recommended.

It went just fine there are ruts in the ground in the front yard were they had to drive to get to the back that is the only not so nice thing but the yard in the back was pretty good

The first truck sent was too big and had to be rescheduled for the next day with a smaller truck due to our narrow driveway. Communicaton was exceptional. Punctuality and care for the property could not have been any better. We were given a senior discount and yet treated like royalty. THIS is the only company we will be using in the future for this service.

We had our aerator tank cleaned/pumped last fall. This summer my wife complained that the system was smelling. Over the next several months the smell became worse. We called

is very respectful and professional. if you have a septic problem be smart and call hachuk inc.. great company!

They were prompt, courteous, pleasant and very careful with the landscape. The project went quickly and efficiently without a hitch and minimal yard damage. They had to dig some by hand to find buried electric lines which I had hired Blood Hound company to locate--they were just where indicated. Hiring Blood Hound was suggested by
San Marcos Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
, and was clearly a very good idea. The lines did not run as we had assumed.

A month later when some of the ground over the old septic tank had sunk much more than expected, they came back with some extra dirt from a nearby project to help level the hole. Clearly they bend over backwards to make everything right.
