had to chisel slab floor to gain access to broken drain line in our bathroom. Drain was repaired and floor/slab was repaired. They also cleaned up after themselves. They did a fantastic job !

Our sump pump crock was filling up with waste water from somewhere in our house plumbing; we suspected a possibly full septic tank. We called first thing in the morning and they were able to come within a couple of hours. They called to let us know when they were on their way and appeared at the time they'd predicted. The technician located and opened the septic tank and discovered that it was not causing the problem. We had it pumped anyway since it was approaching full. He proceeded to trouble shoot what was actually causing our problem and soon discovered a plugged line, one coming from our kitchen sink. When he was unable to clear it with the equipment he had, he called an associate who, likewise promptly, came to finish the job. We would heartily recommend this company. They are prompt, courteous, professional, knowledgeable, and personable.

He arrived early, no problem for us and went right to work finding the tank and uncovering. We had a riser installed over 5 years ago so only a little gravel to rake aside. He pumped the tank and reported that he found an area where cleaning sheets had accumulated. He also found that the exit baffle was broken. Took extra care to check the line and be sure there were no clogs. Did not have the part needed for the repair so would pick it up and be back to repair it at the end of the day about 4. Put the cover back on and went off to his next job. Cost would be 175 for the repair. He had a long day and got back about 8 that evening to complete the job. When I looked out this morning when it was light every thing was back and you can't tell he was ever here the gravel is all raked in place.
This is the second time we have had

We called

after asking around for the best place in town,turns out it wasn't them! We had an appt. they didn't show up. Called again they said they would call back... They didn't. Made another appt. didn't show up again. So I can't say they did a bad job cause they never made it to the house. don't WAIST YOUR TIME!

was quite responsive and accommodating to need for quick work, given a scheduled event at our house occurring in a week. Was forthright about need to widen path to back yard to allow 40 ton truck carrying new tank to gain access, along with the backhoe and bobcat. Kept apprised of schedule in relation to rainy weather and need to act quickly. Also warned that they would provide rough grading only of yard afterward and that seeding or new sod would be needed. Responsiveness, timeliness, and basic work all get an A. Grading and cleanup get a C. Attached pictures show progress of work on day done. Grass and dirt was scraped off of the old tank and the backhoe used to break up the concrete of the old tank, then pull it out of hole. Major pieces of concrete were loaded into a waiting dump truck. Hole was slightly enlarged for slightly larger new tank. New tank was trucked in and crane on truck used to drop it into hole. Connections to existing pipework (with new fittings) were made. New tank was covered and bobcat used to push in dirt, clay, and rocks, with excess dirt then mounded on top of tank for "settling" to occur. Septic tank has worked fine since job was completed. Minor quibble in that I would have liked to have seen/understood fully the amount of drop between input and output pipes by demonstrating with a level or somesuch, as with sloping yard it was hard to gauge on my own, but since old input and output lines used, it is hard to see how it could have changed much. A bigger issue was the condition of the area after they finished. While I understood that the heavy trucks would leave some ruts and that the area over the tank would need re-seeding and some leveling after the rough grading, the backhoe and the bobcat did as much damage to their own areas as over the hole, especially since clay and rocks were dumped by the backhoe on the nearby grass, rather than a canvas tarp on somesuch, leading to damage when the backhoe scooped up the rocks. I, of course, did not expect perfection and I understand what rough-grading is, but three things about the grading bothered me. The first was that when the bobcat started filling the holes around the edges of the tank, he started by pushing in the segregated dirt and grass taken off the top, dropping it into the deepest parts of the hole, then went on to the clay and rocks, guaranteeing that the top

would be rocky and difficult to seed. Secondly, he mounded plenty of extra dirt atop the tank for settling, but the settling occurs around the edges of the tank--the concrete tank leaves no room for anything to settle above it. It would have been better to mound dirt in a rectangular donut around the edges of the tank where settling would and did occur. I spent a lot of effort digging up clay from the top of the tank and moving it to the side. Third, the workers did not do a good job of picking chucks of concrete from the old tank out of the dirt and making sure they went into the dump truck. Consequently, I ended up with some sizeable chunks of unsanitary concrete in the yard which needed to be policed and discarded--dirty, hard work. Pictures show the work on the day performed, some of the chunks of concrete collected when I was attempting to level the mound of dirt, and the progress of the yard by the end of summer.

showed up around 10, found the spot, dug up the grass gently, all the while answering any questions I had. He then proceeded to pump out the tank, which surprisingly didn't smell all that bad. He showed me where the leach field is and where the tank were located (surprise!) that my husband inadvertently parked on a couple of times (ouch), & he advised against doing that in the future. After that, he very carefully replaced the soil and grass, once it rains you won't be able to see where it was dug up.

was AWESOME! Very friendly, knows his stuff, efficient, and the best part, he was great with my 4 year old son too. He let him watch him work, hold the flashlight and even explained what he was doing and taught him stuff as he went about fixing our plumbing issues.
I would HIGHLY recommend D&B Plumbing to anyone, for any time of plumbing work that needs to be done!

Tech arrived early and got started right away. He was professional and answered any questions I had. Service required digging a hole in the yard to access the tank. Tech put everything back and you can hardly tell where it was dug up.

We have been living in this house for a little over a year, which means we don't know anything about the septic tank the former owner built in. It started to back up in to the shower about a month ago, so we hire some other company to pump it out. At that time, I searched online and there were some suggestion about we might have a filter which needs cleaning according to the year of the house. Therefore, when the other company was pumping we asked if we have a filter and we would like to pay extra to get it cleaned. They for sure told me that ours is an old system which does not have a filter. Of course, after the pumping, everything seems good, but they did say if it started to back up again in about 1-2 week, it is probably the field line's problem...After about 2 weeks, it started to back up again. We call the same company and they came over and inspected (LOOKED), and said we need to replace the field line, which cost 2500-3500 and it is going to be a huge mess in the back yard. I just felt so sick for a few days. But this is a relevantly newer house. I just don't believe there is such a big problem. I decided to sign up on here and find another good septic tank service to double check. This time I used

. When we called him and told him the year of the house, she seems pretty sure there is a filter in it. The next day, he came over to our house on time and did a REAL INSPECTION, and guess what, there IS a filter. AND when he pulled the filter out, the standing water just went way done and to the level it suppose to be. Then he cleaned filter and said PROBLEM SLOVED. Totally cost 100 dollars!!! Thanks
