Septic Tank Cleaning reviews in Coeur D Alene

    LITTLE STINKER SEPTIC SVC
    This company is amazing! They have awesome customer service and I would recommend them to anyone! Everyone is polite and just a pleasure to speak to. The job ended up costing us a lot more than expected but it saved us a lot of money in the long run. Our pump ended up going out so Tim ended up pumping everything he could to get us through the weekend. Because of him we didn't have to have an emergency service done over the weekend and were able to hold off until Monday. They went above and beyond for sure!

    This company is a joke and I would never hire them again. First of all the service people are arrogant and rude and secondly it took them over a week just to get an invoice!!! Very unprofessional! We still have no idea how much our service cost... It is also impossible to get anyone to return a phone call.

    CLOG BUSTERS
    The guy was professional and punctual, but sometimes he just wasn't thinking through what the next step was. It was really a four part sequence to think through and he kind of had the cart before the horse and I don't think he had done one of these before, but he tried to make it sound like he had a lot of experience at it. He claimed he had knew the pumps, but maybe part of the confusion was that he wasn't quite certain how the plumbing was inside of it. I think the communication could've been a little better and I was expecting a phone call from him Saturday and never got it and later in the weekend I was able to reach him and he finally admitted that he wasn't coming out. I was understanding that he was going to make an exception and get started and come out and at least give me a bid on the weekend, so if he was able to do that then I would've had some ammunition to make a statement to this other company that they were twice what they were. With the exception of the miscommunication he did get the job done. Something else happened and about a month later our septic system filled up and started overflowing again and I called him about it and told him that something was wrong and the alarm didn't go off. He and the electrician came out the next day and I had to get another pump truck, so the same guy came out and it was $200. He said his work was warrantied, so in other words only his work was under warranty and the electrician didn't say that he was warranting it, but he did show up. We had pumped it out and took a look and the float switch had short circuited and for some reason it didn't trip the circuit breaker and didn't activate the alarm. The float that went out was not the alarm float and the one that shorted out and melted was the pump wire. I asked them why did it happen and neither of them were able to provide me an answer and just decided to put a new one in. The electrician didn't charge me and Clog Busters didn't charge me either and so far it seems to be working. I think they probably had a malfunctioning plug switch and didn't destroy anything or damage any of the stuff and I was satisfied with that.

    Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Boise
    I think they did a terrible job. I called them on Thursday and they told me that there's been people in my area who were having the same problem and they knew what was going on. I told them that I really needed to have a diagnosis to figure out what was wrong before we start talking about what we were going to do. They showed up and had three guys and did not have a pump truck. They took the lid off of the sewage container and it was overflowing and the three guys had a couple of five gallon buckets and had no place to pour the sewage other than on my lawn. After realizing the level wasn't going down after nine or ten buckets full I told them to get a stick and now we could tell that it was a really deep container. They had no idea how deep it was and it was pretty apparent that they had little experience doing this type of work. They expected that they were going to take buckets and unload a 500 gallon container and empty raw sewage onto my yard which I thought was ridiculous. I asked them now what and they told me that I got to hire the guy with the pump truck. I said that I was expecting that they would come up here with one and they told me no and it was going to be $400. I told them that was nuts and I think they doubled every other service that they were going to have done that they didn't provide. I asked them what was wrong with it and they told me that they couldn't tell until it's pumped out and then they could look. I asked them if they could look at the electrical circuits and they told me that they didn't have an electrician.

    It was just some real fundamental things here like checking the circuits to see if the pump was running and I said it's not complex because there's an alarm system next to it and it's going off, so what's going on. They told me that obviously it just overflowed and it's got to be the pump. I asked them when could they get the truck out and they told me that it was too late today to get it, but it was Friday morning and an emergency and we were looking at a whole weekend without plumbing. The guy said that they'll send somebody out and they could pump it out on Monday and to not use the washer and dryer, dish washer, the shower and stuff like that. So, here I was stuck and asked what could I do to expedite this and they said that they have to order the pump and that it might take two or three days to come in. I asked them was it that uncommon and they told me yes and then said it would probably be Tuesday before they get the pump. I was thinking about it and told Mr. Rooter before he left that I needed a written bid on this and how much did he think it was going to be and he told me that it was $1,700 to put the pump in and then it's $400 to pump it out and you also have to have an electrician come in and that was $400 too. He told me that it will all cost $3,900. I told him we weren't carrying the sewage pipe out and replacing it and that this was simply a pump. It was confusing to me because when he said it was $1,700 to put the pump in and I thought that was his labor and the pump, so I asked again for a written bid. He told me that he'll have his staff email me the bid, so I gave him my email address and didn't get a written bid and I didn't accept the work at this point. I had actually asked him how was he going to know what pump it is and he told me that one of my neighbors had one and so it has to be the same thing. I told him that if we did it and it wasn't the same thing what were we going to do and asked was there a return fee. He said it was going to be the same thing and got kind of heated about me questioning this.

    I called another company that afternoon and told them what was going on and that I was waiting for a bid and I asked them to give me an estimate. I told them that I got a sewage problem and needed it cleaned out before the weekend and he told me he could do it and had a guy who's got two pump trucks and they could get to me immediately within 4 to 8 hours. I told him that it sounded good and asked how much it would cost and he told me $200 and I realized that the other guy was double. He asked me if I accepted their bid and I told him it was verbal and I wanted it written. He told me that I wasn't in any obligation to work with them and so I asked when could he come out here to take a look and we needed to first check the circuits because it could be something real simple. He said he could get his electrician to come out, but he couldn't do it today. I told him to go ahead and pump the stuff out, so his guy came out and pumped out my sewage on Friday night in the bitter cold at 7:00 at night. At this point I still haven't heard from Mr. Rooter on their written bid and had checked my email and there was nothing. Well, Friday night before the pump truck came out Mr. Rooter called and asked if I got the bid and told him no and I told him that it seemed really excessive and that they got to work the numbers to the point where it's going to be reasonable for me. He told me again that he would make sure that they'll email the bid and said that people would be in the office tomorrow and that they'll get it done. I never got a written bid and for them to go ahead they needed to have me accept their bid. The second company had not showed up on Saturday, but I at least talked to him and he told me that the electrician can't make it and told me he agreed that the first thing we should do is have him take a look at it and that he wouldn't charge me if there's nothing wrong to begin with, but he'll add a half an hour total time if he use us or otherwise he'll bill me if I don't. He told me that he could come out on Monday afternoon to give me a bid. He told me that the pump is always $1,000 and he could get it the next day, so I said great and asked how much would it be and he said that he has to look at it and his work would be between $200 and $400 for the installation, a $1,000 for the pump, $150 for the electrician, and $200 for pumping the sewer. I told him that was about $2,000 and he told me until he give me the written bid that he thought that's how much it would be, but Mr. Rooter was $4,000. I still haven't seen Mr. Rooter and called them at 9:00 on Monday and they didn't show and asked to talk to the operations manager and they told me that was the owner and I asked to talk to him. They told me that he was out working in the field and so I asked to speak to someone who could actually give me some answers because I haven't heard from anybody about the written bid and they were scheduled to come out and take a look at it and at this point I wasn't going to do it.

    I asked them to call me back and so I didn't get a phone call and at 11:15 their truck shows up and I walked outside and told them that it was a no-go until I talked to their boss. I told them that I thought their prices were exorbitant and I really need to get a written bid in order for me to consider going ahead. He said that I gave them a verbal and told him yeah to order the pump so that it's here, but I also said that he told me that he'll have a written bid for me on Friday and when I talked to you Friday night you said it would be on Saturday and it never came, so I said forget it and at this point I didn't want to have anything to do with them. He told me that I would have to pay for the pump truck and I said that this wasn't scheduled and that they didn't call me. He then said that they were coming and it's going to cost me $200 to have them turn around. I told him to forget about it and then said I needed to sign something saying that I was responsible for them coming out on the original day and said that they were incompetent and it was a horrible experience and that I wasn't use them or signing anything. He then told me to sign something that says that we came out because their boss was going to want to know what happened, so I did and they left. I told him that I weren't paying their bill and he said that his boss was going to call me and he never did. The other company came out and gave me a bid and had it done the next day and it was under $2,000. He got the pump on Tuesday and on Wednesday morning the electrician had the time and they hooked it up and I was good to go.

    The first time Mr. Rooter came out they were on time, but the second time they were supposed to be here in the morning. I don't think they expected me to be there and I told them that I needed to be there to see what was going on and I wanted a phone call. When they didn't show up I called their company and didn't get any response from them, so I took time off of work and they didn't have the courtesy to call me to let me know that they weren't coming until noon. They should've gave me a call and claimed what happened was they couldn't get the pump truck started, but if they had a delay they should've called me because I could've gone back to work. I think that I was getting duped and I saw what the other company did and they were still making a lot of money for what he was doing. I actually met the neighbor who they've done and they charged him with tax $4,000.
