R&E CHIEF SEPTIC LLC

Chief Septic drained, cleaned, and inspected the septic system for a house we were selling. They were wonderful!!! I called several companies and decided to use Chief Septic because of their prompt response, flexibility in scheduling an appointment, and reasonable cost for services. Without hesitation, I would use Chief Septic in the future, and I highly recommend them to anyone in need of septic service.

Shenandoah Septic Inc.

Tom from Shenandoah Septic has been out to my property several times. The first time was to check my septic field on a house that was built in 1935, and has never had any septic work performed since it was originally install. After video inspection of my system, and jet test we had to replace the distribution box and we had to parge the septic tank. Tom did a great job and I would recommend them to anyone needing septic work.

LOUDOUN SEPTIC TANK SVC

I called to make an appointment and was told they could come out that day to evaluate the septic system. They were very clear, on the phone, that the cost would depend on the depth to the septic connection and that they would bill us the complete amount after the work was finished. They came out to evaluate the depth of the septic tank and determined that the tank was buried below the current standard of 18 inches. My husband was home and watched them stick a measurement stick in the ground where the septic tank is. They scheduled the work for later that same week and brought the heavy equipment necessary to get to the septic tank connection. They dug down to the septic tank connection, pumped out the septic tank, filled in the hole they had created and left. The bill arrived and was the amount I expected based on the depth to the septic tank and the work that was done.

Great Falls Septic Service Inc
5.0
I originally called another septic company to do my five year pump out of the septic tank. This was our first time having this done because we didn't own the home the last time the septic was pumped. The other company was so incompetent and couldn't find the hole to pump out the septic tank after looking for about 15 minutes. They told me they would need to git a backhoe to come out a dig. I assured him that I remember the selling real estate agent telling me that the previous company that did the work didn't have to go through all that hassle. I was able to find out that the previous company that did the work was Great Falls Septic Service so I gave them a call. The technician was able to find the septic tank riser, which was buried about 10 inches down in about 2 minutes. I am extremely pleased with the service that I received. The technician was extremely efficient, technical, professional, and courteous. I would highly recommend Great Falls Septic Service.

Every four to five years, we have always called on AITES Septic Services to empty our septic tank. They are always punctual and courteous. We have not used other septic service companies because AITES have always been reliable to us.

COPSEY'S SEPTIC TANK SERVICE
5.0
He did a great job. The clog was right inside at the mainline of the septic tank. He pumped out the septic tanks contents and just took a heavy stick and hit the opening and the clog fell right out.

TRIPLE R CONSTRUCTION CO
5.0
I called Triple R when our septic alarms when off. A receptionist answered and let me know that I would be contacted by someone shortly. Within 15 minutes, the phone rang and Mark called me. He walked me through several checks and helped me identify the likely issue (a leaky toilet, not something wrong with the septic system). He was patient as he walked me through the steps and was reassuring about the situation. Him taking the time to help me on the phone instead of immediately sending someone out was excellent customer service.

Brown & son Septic Service Inc

I was quoted a price of $350.00 to drain my septic tank. The problem is that price is $120.00 OVER any other septic service provider in my area for the same job. I'm sure Brown and Son Septic Service Inc. does a very good job. But I can't justify $120.00 difference.

Company is professional, punctual and very friendly. I informed the person performing the work I had never owned a home with septic. She showed me what to do in case of an emergency with our septic and explained how the septic works. She also informed us about what NOT to flush down our septic. I was very grateful for all the information and time she spent with me explaining everything to me. I will use them again in a few years (when necessary) and can HIGHLY recommend their service

Stewarts Septic Service, LLC
5.0
Stewart's performed the septic inspection (whatever it's called) when we bought our house 3.5 years ago. I had heard my neighbors complain about some other companies, so I decided to give Stewart's repeat business. They quoted $265, came out and pumped 1,500 gallons. The workman took his time and explained to me the workings of my septic system, since I had never lived on septic before. He answered all my questions, and replaced the dirt from where he had to unbury the septic box lid. I was pleased with the service.

LOUDOUN SEPTIC TANK SVC

ILoudoun Septic came out to service our septic tank. Upon request, they ended up spending a lot of time inspecting our very old and failing septic system (without any additional cost). They came up with options to save us large amounts of money. The previous company that come out did nothing to check failing components. I wish we had gone with Loudoun Septic 10 years ago. They REALLY care about their customers. They deserve an A+ rating.

These guys were amazing. First on the phone, Angie was extremely informative, answered all of my questions and made everything super easy. Juan was extremely thorough in his analysis, recommendations, and feedback. They had to "look" for my septic tank as it was buried. They accomplished everything as promised and explained every step of the process. I would strongly recommend them to anyone needing septic service, cover installation, inspection of the septic system.

Five Star Septic

I was extremely pleased with Five Star Septic. I called on a Wednesday to have my septic tank pumped, and they were able to schedule me right away. The people who answer the phone are very polite and professional. When the tech performing the service was delayed, the office called to let me know why and that he was on the way. The tech, Ariel, was very professional, very respective of my property, and very efficient. I would not hesitate to call and work with Five Star Septic again.

It went well without any problem. He came on time and located the manhole cover of the septic tank based on the septic tank map provided by the County. He dug 3 feet approximately to uncover the manhole cover and spent over 20 minutes pumping and cleaning the septic tank. Job was professionally done and they cleaned up the area afterwards.

This is the second time I have used Chief Septic to empty my tank and I am completely satisfied. Edgard's honesty was refreshingly welcome and he said I could have the septic system emptied at 18 months instead of 12 months (we have a small tank). I would definitely recommend Chief Septic to everyone.

However, we may have pros in another category that can help with your project.

Septic tank cleaning is an important process - debris can solidify and end up blocking pipes that lead into and out of the tank itself. With proper cleaning, all debris inside the tank can be removed in order to prevent issues.

How is septic tank cleaning done? What is the process?

The septic tank cleaning process involves the following steps:

  • Accessing the tank. Cleaning begins by accessing the main septic tank. The lid is first removed and special equipment is used to access the inside of the tank itself.
  • Removal of debris. Next, pumping equipment is used to remove all solid debris that has accumulated within the tank. A power hose is also used to dislodge any debris that is stuck along the tank walls.
  • Inspection of the tank structure. Your contractor may also inspect the inside/outside of the tank for any structural damage and surface effluent.

How much does septic tank cleaning near me cost?

Most homeowners incur $280 to $500 for their septic tank cleaning.

It’s advisable to have the tank pumped at least once every three years. If you let the tank overflow, it can result in significant problems that may require replacement (a $5,000 to $10,000 cost). If you notice pools of water around the home, slow draining sinks and toilets, or frequent foul odors, it may be time for septic tank cleaning.

What should I look for in a contractor near me?

Before you hire a professional for this service, here are questions to ask your septic tank cleaner.

  • What specific steps are included in your cleaning service?
  • Do you charge a fixed cost or by the hour?
  • Where is the waste taken for disposal?
  • What if I experience problems after the cleaning process?

These questions will make it easier to estimate the septic tank cleaning cost and whether your contractor is a good pick for the job.
