Septic Tank Cleaning reviews in Portland

  • First I want to say that the prior owner of this home did not put in adequate drain field for the size of this home or properly account for how many people would be living in this home.  This is no fault of Provider name locked. & I do not hold them responsible for prior home owner errors.

    That being said Provider name locked. did diagnose problem and installed a new drain field that was supposed to accommodate the size of the home and the people living in it.  It didn't work

    Speedy suggested we decommission the current sand filter & replace it with a commercial grade filter.  Again this did not work.

    Our home has the capacity of over 3000 galleons of septic waste with tanks installed by speedy.  Currently these tanks have been converted with the city of Portland's approval and with necessary and required permits to a holding pond situation.  We currently have an approved plan by the city to connect out home with the sewer.  Design took eight months to complete and an additional 2-3 months while speedy sent or took bids for work to be completed.  Speedy claimed that delay was the fault of the city, claiming that design had to be submitted and resubmitted multiple times.  Speedy provided no documentation of delay and very little communication with us.   Whenever WE contacted speedy we were told "it's almost done" or city this or city that.  Final estimate is upwards of $68000. We have not determined what course of action we are going to take.

    As my wife and I run an adult care foster home from this location our options are somewhat limited. Issue will ultimately be resolved. What form resolution will take remains to be seen.

    I must say I have looked on other websites and was very surprised at the rating speedy was given

  • We live below the sewer main so our house uses sewer pumps to push all household water up hill to the main. The pump system alarm sounded, and the pump manufacturer recommended that I call RCE to work on them. Provider name locked. from RCE came out to diagnose the problem, and correctly told me that one of the pump motors was shot and the capacitor had blown. We asked him for a recommendation on what to do next in terms of replacement. He came out again and had a representative from the pump manufacturer on the phone. They walked through the electrical on the system, and said that our 240V home electrical was too high and that I needed to call the power company to have them push less electricity to the house. Seeing as 240V is standard in all houses I knew this was not right, and confirmed that with both the power company and two different electricians. 
    Nevertheless, since there are not many people who work on these things, I asked him to provide me with an estimate for replacing the pumps. He never called back. I also followed up directly with the office staff for an estimate and they never called back. 
    The only reason they didn't get straight Fs was because Provider name locked. did come out twice and showed some dedication those two times in trying to figure out the problem. But the lack of follow through was very unprofessional. I will not use them again.

  • It went great.  They came by later on the same day I called, brought a van with a large supply of parts they could choose from depending on what they found, and then quickly diagnosed & replaced the failing septic tank pump.  Their price was slightly higher than I expected for the replacement pump & service call, but they made up for it with same day service and an immediate fix for the problem at hand.
