Reviews for Septic Tanks in Norfolk

Forrest Sewer Pump Service Inc
5.0
We highly recommend Forrest Sewer Pump Service. They have been assisting us with our sewer pump for over 25 years. They are excellent. Always responsive, fair and thorough in their work. They recently did a complete replacement of a 30+ year old sewer pump system and we are extremely satisfied with their work. Took away the old above-ground pump house and put it all underground – while replacing all of the components including the electric system with an alarm.

The repairs to the sewer lift station could not be repaired by the plumbing company before church services started the following morning. They recommend Forrest. I called Forrest and worked out an agreement to be charged $215 per 1,000 gallons pumped and that they would arrive at 7:30AM the following morning. When I arrived around 7:45AM the truck was in place, and pumping had started. It was at that time John Forrest said he would be charging $215 per hour, not $215 per 1,000 gallons as agreed. I told him I felt he had an unfair advantage to which he responded "I don't want you to feel that way. Please call around." I had 900 people showing up over the next 4 hours and had no time to call around on Sunday morning for another provider. I had no choice but to allow Forrest to stay. After Services, when all was pumped and dry, I requested Forrest, Inc to provide the details for a new quote to replace the failed equipment (this required going into the wet well to extract pump information). John said they would come back the following day to do this, which they did. A week later an invoice for $325 was received for services to enter the well and retrieve information to provide a quote. With legal consultation, I paid this company $325 for services provided on 2/8 and $0.00 for services provided 2/9. I've received no response from the company.

RILLCO
5.0
My septic had backed up into the house. We were looking for an answer beyond just pumping it out. I called RILLCO. I talked with the owner's daughter who runs the office for 20 minutes. She was professional, courteous and answered all of my questions. She explained all of the services that RILLCO could do for me. We scheduled the service which would be a septic pump out and septic field restoration. The workmen arrived on time and worked on the septic field for 6 hours. They pumped out the septic field, did a roto-rooter on all the drain field pipes, added a chemical restorative to the field. We discussed long term solutions. We plan to have RILLCO back in the spring for more work. I would highly recommend this company for all your septic needs.

The 1x tank pumping and 2x filter cleaning was fine. When it actually got done mind you. No shows, no returned calls, no respect for other people's time or schedules. Pretty much the same deal as everyone else. How is this person still in business!?! We wised up and finally hired a different company. So glad we did.

I was very pleased with the service. I called the day before and the woman I spoke with was very nice and when I explained the problem I've been having said she would send someone the next day instead of four days later. I would definitely use this company again.

I called first thing in the morning after our septic system backed up the night before. A truck showed up less than 2 hours later and began to fix the problem. The technician Chad was very personable and took the time to show me exactly what the problem was. He fixed the problem and recommended some steps to prevent it from happening again. I was very pleased with my experience, and the way we were treated. I would recommend their services should the need ever arise.

They were wonderful. They came out. They were prompt. I didn't know exactly where the septic tank was so it took the guy a long time to find it and he just kept on until he did. I don't have anything bad to say about them.

They didn't let us know on the phone that it was extra to pump the lines. Otherwise I was satisfied with everything. They were extremely punctual.

We contacted him on the advice of a friend. Even though there was a negative review here, we went with our friend's recommendation. We are happy to say David was early for the appointment, professional, answered all of our questions and explained how our septic system works. He also took the time and effort to place the soil on a tarp and you can't even tell they were here. We highly recommend him!

Recent Review: The service tech arrived at the scheduled time. He attempted to locate the main drain clean-out on my property with negative results. The house had been constructed in 1974, and the clean-out apparently had not been installed, which is now required in the city code. He excavated an area in my flower bed, after carefully removing one of the plants to provide more access to the area. He located the main drain near the slab and foundation of my house. He punched a hole in the pipe and checked the full length of my main drain with his video camera. The tech discussed the condition of my main drain line, and I inquired about installing a clean-out on my property. He told me what would be required and the approximate cost. I told him I would like to have a clean-out installed. He backfilled the hole he had dug after temporarily covering the hole he had made in the pipe. He returned on 9/24/13 with the required materials and reopened that hole to gain access to the drain pipe. He installed the clean-out after power flushing my main drain to the city clean-out. He backfilled the hole again and replaced the plant he had moved. The tech was very knowledgeable and friendly, a credit to his company which I have since learned, also, maintains my whole-house generator annually. I was very pleased with the quality of his work.

Recent Review: I called first thing in the morning. Got on the schedule for later in the day. Twenty minutes later they had a technician ready to come to the house. Both ladies I talked to on the phone were courteous, friendly, and professional. The technician, Matt, was on time. Once I explained the problem he cleaned and inspected the line. He gave me several alternatives from practical and inexpensive, to expensive and unlikely. And he answered all my questions. As important, he cleaned up after himself. Great service and are worth the cost.

Recent Review: Don's Plumbing Service did an excellent job and charged a very fair price! I called Mr. Don Ashby on the evening of the 18th of February and asked him if he could come over to fix my sink the next day. He moved some appointments around for me and we scheduled an appointment for 5:00pm the next day. Unfortunately, I was the one late for the appointment because of rush hour traffic, but he waited for me, even though I was 20 minutes late. He was very professional and polite. He examined the problem and gave me a very fair quote. He went to work immediately and fixed the problem within an hour. He left the work area clean and the drain working perfectly. I will definitely use his company in the future and I highly recommend his company to anyone who needs the services of a plumber who does great work and charges a very fair price.

Recent Review: They do plumbing, electrical and several other things. I guess I spent $250 or $300 or something like that on their services. I wasn’t here when they did the work unfortunately. From everything I’ve heard, it sounds like they explained what had to be done and how it had to be done. It sounds like they provided professionalism appropriately from what I can tell. They mainly installed the pump and it worked for me. I came home and I didn’t detect that they had left things around a mess. So I guess they did a good job cleaning up. I didn’t see anything that was left and so they obviously took care of it. They did okay for what I needed at that time. It was a last minute kind of thing. They came and got it done, and it didn’t have any crunch. I don’t know about the price because I don’t know how much it should have cost. I’m assuming they might be a little high compared to the other plumbers only because they’re such a big company. They do some big jobs. At the time they were willing to come out and do the job. So the job wasn’t done based on price. So far the quality is good. The sump pump is still working and it’s doing what it’s supposed to do. It sounds like they did good work. They needed to do an electrical outlet and so they ended up doing electrical at the same time. They were responsive and they came right out. I will use them again in the future.

Recent Review: When I called to schedule service, the person who answered scheduled me quickly and made sure I knew how they billed, and the hourly rate. I agreed, and was scheduled for later that day. The plumbers that came out were a little gruff when they were trying to find the cause of the problem but cheered up considerably when they did. They got everything fixed, and finished as quickly as something like that can be fixed. They also suggested several long term solutions that were both cheaper and made more sense than our previous plumber.

We were without all water service 2 days before Christmas & they came to our rescue for a very reasonable price. Definitely use again! 5-stars all around! NOTE: They are "old-school" cash or check, no credit card payment.

Recent Review: The repair was made timely and professionally. The price and quality of the product delivered was excellent. David took care of everything including City inspection. In addition, he followed up to ensure everything was working properly. Service should be define by the manner in which Richardson Plumbing performed this service
