was hired to install a septic tank system. They left piles of dirt behind, stating that they would use it when they came back to cover the septic tank. They" never came back. When I called to inquire about when they would return to cover septic tank, they said that they already had. They had not! Finally the general contractor came and covered it since they did not. At the time of installation, they installed an alarm on the system. On Monday, October 13th the alarm began to sound. I called them at least twice a day, morning and again in afternoon, asking them to return my call. Each time I left a nice voice mail message. After a few days with no returned call, I went to their website and completed a "request for service" as directed. Today
6 work days with no return calls. The alarm is still going off, so I suppose I have no other choice than to hire another company to come and check the system. I would never use this company again, and would recommend anyone who wants prompt quality service to choose someone else!

"After making the situation clear to the receptionist, the team arrived in less than 2 hours. They examined, figured out the problem, fixed it and were on their way in less than 2 hours" after arrival. They were polite, prompt and good. They got the job done, made suggestions toward the system running generally better and left. Really professional and pleasant. Plus they fixed the problem quickly!

"We have a rental that we were preparing for new tenants and live out of town. I use Angie's list because I had bad experiences with a HVAC, and electrical contractor that I found" through word of mouth. I found
on Angie's List, and picked him because he was local to our neighborhood, and had good reviews. He was amazing. What I liked best about him is that he would answer our questions and helped us out even when he didn't expect work from us. Originally, we got a quote from him to hook up to the sewer. During the quote process he discussed all the options with me. Once we found out the cost, we changed our minds and decided to continue using the septic because we didn't want to spend the money and upgrade, but we still needed help on locating the septic and emptying it. I called
for advice because I am unfamiliar with the process. He told me how to locate the septic, where to dig, how far to dig, and who to call to pump it. We found a mess once we located and accessed the septic, and it was going to be expensive to bring our septic up to code. Instead, we called
to connect us to the sewer as it was now the logical route. My husband works in construction, and
met with him to discuss the plan and discuss any concerns he had. He is easy to talk to and addressed all of his questions and alternative ideas. We needed it done in a hurry, and he fit us into his schedule. He also adjusted the price based on the work we did to locate and empty the septic. He worked with our tenants to make sure to minimize any interruption in toilet service. He did the work without supervision-as we live out of town, did it honestly, timely, and professionally. He mailed us the inspections and receipts quickly, and without us reminding him. He is awesome, and of excellent character. I never felt pressured or insecure in what he was going to do or what it would cost me because he was forthcoming during the whole process. I really enjoyed working with
, and I highly recommend him.

How to maintain a septic system

A highly rated Angie's List service provider describes how to properly maintain your septic system and drain field. Here are five tips to help.

Cleaning a septic system needs to be done every couple of years.

Septic systems

Septic systems are commonly used in rural areas and sometimes in areas not served by a municipal sewage system. Septic systems absorb household sewage and distribute the liquid waste into a designated leach field where natural processes can reclaim it. However, solid wastes and grease must be pumped out of the septic system periodically.

Just as your car requires regular maintenance, your septic system needs maintenance on a regular schedule as well, says Mills. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Diana N. of Chicago)

asked me again to explain what was happening and how long it had been since tank was pumped and which bathroom was having problems with the gurgling. He dug tank lid up and sure enough it was full. He had me flush every toilet one at a time so he could see how water was flowing.There was a clog at the master toilet line. He ran water through lines and a huge clog came out. FYI, don't use flushable wipes.

I was having difficulty finding the tank/lid. Their service technician stopped in twice to assist me in locating the lid, then came back to actually pump the contents. All was done very well and they returned the next day to put riser on the lid.

came out and checked the site himself and recommended a couple of different options for the job. Once we had the plan figured out he worked with my schedule and actually got the job done faster than I expected. By the time his guys were done all my yard needed was some grass seed and a bit of water to get it into better than original condition.

He came out 10 minutes earlier than the scheduled appointment which was great for me. He was courteous business very business like. He found my septic tank and pumped it out in less than an hour. I am very pleased with the service and I will use him again.

I recently moved and realized the house has a septic tank, which is a first for me. I found
Schenectady Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
on Angie's List and called them to schedule. Very nice lady on the phone, gave me all the information and pricing for different scenarios. Next morning an upbeat gentleman calls to confirm that he would be there. When he arrived I explained I didn't even know where the tank was, he said "no problem, I will find it" and sure enough a few minutes later he has found it and is pumping it. He cleaned perfectly afterwards and left the grass intact. I recommend them.
