Septic Tank Cleaning reviews in Waukesha

    Stanley Walters Septic Pumping
    Very pleased - originally, thinking I just had a blockage I had called for a routine pumping. But when I didn't find the blockage that I was expecting, I had to call back for an 'emergency' pump out. They were here 1st thing this morning. And while they couldn't be 100% sure, it is quite likely the problem is simply too much rain. We've used Stanley Walters for over 25 years - has always been reliable and when you have a private septic system a reliable septic service is well worth it.

    They were very easy to deal with. Very professional and knowledgeable. When Steve came to the house he was on time, efficient and prepared for everything that needed to be done to perform the water test, examine the septic tank, repair one of the septic tank vents and he even added air to the pressure tank when he saw it needed it. They were able to get the water testing results emailed back to us in just a week. The process went very smoothly.

    Back in 2012 my 48-year-old septic system failed. In the
    previous few years several systems of like vintage on my street had failed and
    needed replacement. But you tend to be optimistic that you?ll get another year
    or two out of your system. Then kablooey. It just can?t get the job done and
    you need a replacement.
    This can be a pretty scary event financially. Chances are,
    that unless you buy a new house or a high-end luxury car, this may be the most
    expensive thing you will ever purchase. You have a million questions and this
    is something that Google may help with, but it won?t necessarily give you the
    answers for your state, town, or particular situation.
    You have to rely on trust. My long-time pumping service,
    Sunset Septic, did what they could, but it wasn?t as simple as clearing a
    clogged line. The guys did, however, give me some leads on who to approach
    about a repair (if possible) or construction of a new system.
    I contacted John Kienbaum of Kienbaum Excavating &
    Septic and he investigated. What they discovered was a failed system that was
    not built (two owners ago, back, in 1962) correctly.
    Did I mention my septic tank was under my garage? I guess
    the 60s were the wild west. Anyway, they did several soil tests, measured the
    size of my lot (which had a pretty good down hill slope to it), and concluded I
    needed a mound system, versus an enhancement of the old-style.
    My first concern was being able to physically fit it on the lot (there
    were a lot of mature trees that would have probably added $3,000 for removal to
    the final bill).
    Second was cost. The economy isn?t exactly humming along for
    everyone and it wasn?t something I wanted to use a home equity loan on, so
    there was a pretty fixed ?no more than? price I could afford.
    Third was preservation of as many trees as possible. Hey, I
    like trees, and only one of three smaller Spruces I transplanted didn?t make
    We came up with a pretty good plan to attack the problem.
    An outside engineer examined the property and designed the
    system to fit the tight spaces and downward angle.
    Before the target date Mr. Kienbaum measured and re-measured
    the property lines with a GPS system, and identified where the system could be
    installed. He also did some chainsaw work where needed. John also designed the
    re-routing of the interior piping to run out to the new tank (running through
    the old tank, in the garage, wasn?t really a sound option). Once the
    battlefield was prepared, we agreed upon a start date.
    Note:  He gave us time to remove as much of our garden as we could for transplantation. Due to the downward
    slope of the yard, compounded by the north slope of the mound, would make it
    unsafe to mow. This, then, provided plenty of space to transplant the day
    lilies and cone plants and let the flowers take over.
     Once the heavy equipment arrived, what impressed me most was
    that basically, two men built the system, from digging up the yard, spreading
    the sand, installing the pipes, and delivery of the tank (another vender
    hoisted it into place).
    From start to finish, it took three days, and if memory
    serves, the new system was usable midday on the third day (there was just a
    modest window when water couldn?t be used) The last half of the third day was
    largely cleanup work, grading, filling in and sealing the old tank, and putting
    down grass seed and hay.
     When I asked him how long between pumping?s (I had been
    pumping every 18 months), he told me three years and that the system would have
    at least a 50 year service life.
     I resolved to write a review after the first pumping to flag
    any concerns. It turns out Waukesha County sends you a card to remind you about
    the three-year pumping and system inspection. (When you start to receive
    postcards offering to pump and inspect your system from firms you may never
    have heard of, that is a clue the date is near).
     I can say that I have had no problems with the system and
    the check by Sunset Septic confirmed that all was well with the tank and the
    pump. I am still a happy camper.
     In the end, John listened to our concerns, and delivered a
    quality mound system within our target dollar amount. Should you find yourself
    in a pickle, and needing a new septic system (or major repairs on an older
    system) I highly recommend using his service.

    Stanley Walters Septic Pumping
    Stanley Walter is the only service that has pumped my septic tank since 1968. He is always prompt and reasonably priced and gives a quality report on the condition of the system. I recommend him to anyone.

    Sunset Septic Service Inc
    Had been having problems with back ups in the basement. It took a 2nd plumber to figure out that our septic filter was plugged causing 2 pumps in our basement to fail. We called Sunset Septic and they were able to be at our house within 2 hrs and they pumped both tanks and then fixed and cleaned filter that was causing the problems with our basement drain and pumps. They were polite, punctual and when I paid, I asked about if they took competitors coupons, they said they didn't but that they would give me $15 off. Something they didn't need to do but was a nice touch.

    Doc's was the second opinion after another co. Said the system needed to be replaced for 19000.00 . This was at our small church and we really didn't have the money , but we needed a quick repair. Doc's responded quickly assuring us that some repairs and a good clean out of the pipes to the septic bed would provide us with many years of service and with the updates to the system, clean outs would be easier and cheaper in the future. Vary professional and friendly, repairs were done in a few days. It's not always about the money, should be their motto,

    Kons Septic Service Inc
    Dave was prompt and very informative. He gave suggestions and advice on how to keep the tank in good working order. When the tank alarm started going off, Dave returned on very short notice and replaced the pump switch float. Dave was very professional and likable.

    He came out the same day that I called and was very friendly and explained to us what had to be done. He came back the next day as promised and replaced the pipe and reseeded the lawn per our agreement, however the lawn is very uneven with large dips and valleys in it and now I have to get a load of dirt to fill in these holes and reseed that area. I feel that it was a waste of money to pay him for something I have to redo. I will still give him an A for the pipe work but a C for his backfill work.

    Docs Sewer & Water
    Were very prompt.   Made sure we knew what the price would be before they did the work.  There was one trip to pump the tank with pumper truck and another to clean out the line to the bed.  Don't know if the price was right because we didn't check anyone else but it seemed in line with when we had the same thing done 10 years ago (higher of course)

    Stanley Walters Septic Pumping
    Rick Walter is the one who did the work.  He was AWESOME!  Being first time septic users, he was very helpful as to how to use the system and what we can and cannot do.  Having just experienced a back flow into the basement due to a clog in the tank, Rick was able to tell us what likely caused the problem.  I chose this company off of Angie's due to the closest location - (others charged more for the drive distance).  I was a little leery at first when the receptionist over the phone wasn't as helpful and friendly as I found with another company, but ended up trying them out anyway.  Glad it did!!!  Will use them again.  I know more about septic systems than I thought I ever would!
