This provider was at my neighbors house this morning when I approached him and started asking questions. Told him we hadn't had our tank cleaned in the 9 plus years we lived in the house. He said he could do it right away that morning. I told him we weren't sure where the opening was and he found it for us at no charge (it was very close to the top of the ground, deeper ones that would really have to be dug out would incur a charge).
He worked hard and did a thorough job. Answered our many questions and gave us good advice on maintenance.
I wouldn't hesitate to call this company again. .

The septic tank provider of service "
Tacoma Septic Tank Services Provider Name Locked
" was prompt and on time scheduled for service. Septic take was located and quickly was pumped out. Area around septic tank and truck did not have any of the sewage left around them or on the road and driveway. When finished He ask me to flush all toilets (4) before lid replaced on tank. Also he explained to me how to check at any time if the toilet reservoirs' seals closed correctly after flushing . He had me do the test in each toilet to see if any showed a continual slow leak. One of the toilets reservoir had a slow leak and was quiet easy for me to replace a washer. This preventive measure for me to be able to identify and decrease possibly amount of the unknown flow of fluid into septic tank was appreciated. He took the time to help me be part of a preventive care solution. Thanks to him and his associate - Both were very professional, clean, and seamed to enjoy their work

pumped the septic, snaked the lines, inspected the lines with a video camera and cut and cleaned roots. They explained each step and had me watch. They did not leave until everything was working properly. I recommend and am completely satisfied with all their work. I will use them again in the future.

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

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.
