Septic Tank Cleaning reviews in Elgin

    RIEKE SEPTIC SERVICE
    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 slim 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 Tim?, from Rieke, 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 Rieke Septic Services back out.

    Henry was very personable and answered the phone when I called. He was able to give me the price quote immediately for a septic tank pump out and set the date for the next business day (Monday). He gave me a time frame from 7am to 11am and was clear about what was happening on Monday to determine the time he would arrive. He called before 8am to let me know he would be at my house around 10am.

    The truck arrived on time and they promptly worked to locate the tank cover and were literally done in less than 20 minutes. He gave me instructions and pointed out the two sides of the tank, separated by a concrete wall. He said that some companies do not clean out both sides, and we should be aware this. He also told me to consider a HE washing machine when we are ready to replace ours, and to not get a garbage disposal. Also, we should never throw anything (i.e., baby wipes, diapers, etc.) into the tank as this will clog it up. We should also get the tank cleaned out every three years in order to not introduce sludge into the septic fingers. This will keep the septic field running well for many years.

    MY FIRST CALL WAS RETURNED, WITH A PROMISE OF FOLLOW UP TO SET AN APPOINTMENT. THEY DID NOT FOLLOW UP. I CALLED AGAIN, AND RECEIVED THE SAME ASSURANCE THAT I WOULD BE CONTACTED. BUT THEY AGAIN FAILED TO MEET THEIR COMMITMENT.
