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

, 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.

I called at around 11 and they were here by 12 even though my appointment was for the following day. The service was quick and beyond what I paid for. The issue I called for was fixed. Great Service !

I called early in the morning with my problem. `The problem had been going on for some time and I was a bit upset.

took my call and was Fabulous. While she explained that all techs were in the field with a list of jobs to be completed, she would see if she could get someone out to me that day. She called me back a few minutes later and told me

would be out later in the day. WOW.

arrived and had a difficult time getting the lid off as there was no handle on it as it had rust off. He worked to get the lid off and cleaned the tank and lines. He made sure that everything was flowing perfectly. He was very helpful with information on what may need to be done to improve the lid. Explained that the tank looked great with no interior problems.

The day before this service, we had an emergency issue which we thought was plumbing-related. When the plumber arrived after hours (because the problem arose in the late afternoon when it was very difficult to get someone out on the fly), he said that before he could do anything our septic tank would need to be pumped. --It had been about three years since our last pumping, and just two of us live here, so we were certainly going to do it, but it wasn't the top thing on our agenda. --And because we had to do it sooner than we anticipated, I had no idea who to use.
By the time the plumber came out, it was after six p.m., and I knew the prospects of finding someone to pump the septic tank after hours were
Effingham Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
to none. Funny thing is, for almost all of the companies who claim to offer 24 hour/"emergency" service--they don't. Period. I called several of these places, and for all I called except one, either no one answered the phone, or the person I talked to didn't think it was "emergency"-enough--which was incredibly frustrating. And the one guy who did say yes said that his REGULAR charge to pump a tank was $475, and that after hours would be $800. Are you KIDDING me? I'd done my research and I knew what it cost for a basic tank pumping... We were prepared to go stay at a hotel for the evening, but ended up staying home because it was so late anyway.
We also stayed home because

?, from
Effingham Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
, returned my panicky phone call, asked us some really good, detailed questions about what was going on, and then said he could be out at 8 am.
Since it looked like no one else was available for "emergency" service, we said yes to that time slot. --This at least let us sleep easier knowing someone would be coming early in the morning.
Not only was it an early appointment--he came EARLY!!!
He was nice, professional, knowledgeable, and fast. He was done in about 20 minutes--which had him out of the door before our scheduled appointment time! He didn't think we needed the enzyme treatments that the plumber relentlessly kept trying to push on us... It was also nice to know that he'd recently serviced the home of one of our neighbors.
We wouldn't hesitate to bring

Services back out.

After 11 years the old septic pumps failed.

came and diagnosed the situation for a small fee. Once hired, they installed

pumps. They credited the diagnostic fee. They worked with the county completely independently in getting the permit. County inspector certified their work and gave a satisfactory certificate.

Overall it went ok. The dripping was all resolved and also the
Effingham Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
faucets. The hot/cold issue was not. So overall the job was done. However it was a total 1 hour job and litterally it was about tigtening some screws and bolts (now that I have seen how it works, I can do it myself and have actually done it it to other faucets). The total bill was over $200 in addition to the Angie's list deal and I think that's a pretty crazy price. I mean... my lawyer is cheaper than that!
Also, the day of the original appointment the guy did not show up as he got lost... I live on the mountains so I am sort of used to that, but a call would have been appreciated, rather than make me wait 2 hours... The following day they were timely.

After another provider we had selected from consulting with the list did not want the job, my wife a bit in panic called out of the yellow pages. Following up this morning I was concerned by the mixed reviews of this provider, but for the past year they have been quite strong. And my experience was very positive. Called by their scheduler first thing this morning, originally scheduled for tomorrow afternoon. But with a cancellation they came this afternoon. Very efficient. Got things open and pumped. Verified that the pump had failed (which matched the symptoms). Even though late in the afternoon, they arranged (third party?) pump/alarm electrician to come for that part of the work. Good steady communication throughout. Arrived 3:30 p.m., complete by 6:00 p.m.
I did capture part numbers and look at costs of the pump and alarm. The markup was reasonable, especially with labor included for an unpleasant job.
Glad to have an alarm now. Our pump had been in service since the mid 80s...not expecting to repeat this exceptional performance.

We contacted Lakeside base on its stellar reviews. In the end
Effingham Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
said "I can't make money digging" and we had to go elsewhere.
Effingham Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
was responsive and straightforward. We never talked price and so I'm not sure he can't make money digging. I'm a senior citizen and digging needed to be done and I would have willingly paid for it.

was able to schedule us within a week of our phone call about 3 days when our septic was backing up. He was able to locate and pump all tanks of our septic. He provide helpful advise on septic to avoid future issues. I would use his services in the future and recommend to others.

They were very friendly, professional and courteous. We discussed our need to inspect the unit and they described how their services work and the cost. A time was scheduled and the service person arrived as planned. He completed his job and we could not be more pleased with the overall experience.
