Septic Tank Cleaning reviews in Lake Oswego

    Arrived, had the tank open, they checked it out, pumped and I still have a clogged line under the house and since they are not authorized for plumbing work - could not do the work, but had recommendations and will follow their advice.  Was great to get to me so fast - as next service would not be available until Tuesday.
    It pays to have Angies List recommendations

    When I call twice, leave messages and send an email requesting a call back regarding a new septic tank and drainfield for an upcoming remodel, I would think I'd get a response.  But I did not, and was very disappointed as I have used the company to pump my tank before.  In any event, I can't recommend the company anymore and will get septic services elsewhere.

    I called earlier this week to arrange to have my septic tank pumped. The appointment was set for 8 am this morning. I called at 7:50 to confirm that the person who was going to pump was really on his way. I had read in previous reviews that communication, scheduling and punctuality are not the strong suits of this company. I was assured the worker was on his way.  At 8:15 - still no one arrived, I called again and was assured he would arrive soon. I asked the receptionist to please to call him to confirm.  The receptionist said he was stuck in traffic and would be there in 15 minutes.  Marty arrived at 8:30 and promptly went to work. He was not stuck in traffic, afterall - he was sent to another address.  Marty was careful to minimize disturbance to our yard. He called me when he was done to report that everything went well, no problems to report.  I was very happy with Marty and his service. This company still does not have scheduling down.  I would not use again unless I didn't have any place to be at the time of appointment. Marty gets 5 stars - the professionalism grade is for him, his demeanor, his service and responsiveness.  The organization behind him gets 2+ stars. If I hadn't called twice, I would still be waiting for Marty to arrive.

    Discovered that our toilets and showers were backing up at 8:30 pm. Called and talked with someone on call, which was very nice to have! She talked me through what we should do so that we could take showers in the am. Although they have techs available for emergency calls, we decided to wait until the next day. She indicated that someone could come out the next afternoon. They did and discovered that that the issue was in the main line and attempted to unclog it at several places. They worked hard until they got it done, they were professional and cleaned up after themselves.

    Three phone calls which were taken by Jolene resulted in the assurance that we were on the list and our questions would be answered by one of the repair team. No calls were returned, tried email still no response.

    After a month with tank uncovered and distribution box open, we found another company to complete the needed repairs

    Marty was hard working and professional but the follow up by such a highly rated company was unacceptable and future customers should be warned

    Our septic system suddenly backed up into the house early one morning.  A call to A-Affordable Septic Service was made based on Angie's list reviews and a one hour window was obtained for a service appointment that same morning.  The office staff was upfront and clearly stated that a $110 hourly charge would apply to locate and excavate the septic system, to which I agreed.  This was in line with what competing service companies were quoting.  The tech (Marty) arrived 30 minutes into the estimated 1 hour service window.  He was very professional and quickly assessed the situation.  The septic tank access cover had not been excavated prior to his arrival so he located the tank and hand dug the hole.  He was careful to remove the sod separately and neatly pile the dirt.  Our soil is infamous for random rocks from fist sized to boulders.  He was again careful to pile them separately so they would not be used in the back-fill and impede future excavations.  
    Unfortunately our tank orientation and an inferior, home made riser installed by the previous owner required Marty to spend several hours to gain full access to the septic tank.  After nearly 7 hours of work that continued into the dark evening, Marty persevered until he had pumped and cleaned the tank, found and removed the blockage and then confirmed free flow from the septic clean-out access point near the house to the septic tank inlet.  The work site was cleaned up plus made safe and secure in preparation for a second crew to come the next day and install a properly sized riser.  Marty said he would not leave until our septic system was functioning properly and he delivered. The cost for the amount of work provided by Marty was extremely fair and I unreservedly recommend his services.
    A two man crew arrived in a clearly marked company vehicle the following day as expected to install the new riser.  Robbie patiently answered my many questions about the installation and possible options.  The installation went as explained and was completed in a little over an hour.  The crew groomed the site until I was completely satisfied with the appearance.  They were definitely aiming to please.  Again, A-Affordable provided excellent service. 
    The total cost for both services was very reasonable, especially when considering the amount of services provided and the quality of work.

    They delivered as promised. It was timely and efficient. What more can you ask for? Service agent gave great advice about the setup - above and beyond the work - which I will act upon in the near future.

    We've had work done on our septic system over the years and no one was as knowledgeable, honest, and efficient than Dave with West Side Drain. He is very responsive and a good educator as well. We are extremely pleased with his work.
