DO NOT HIRE HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hired Mr. Ron McManus to fix a septic tank issue where he had replaced a pump in one of two holding tanks. After 2 weeks, the alarm on my septic rang out and, as I was out of town, relied upon Mr. Ron McManus to fix the problem. He stated that both my pumps needed to replaced as did the entire drain field to cost me over $6000,he had already replaced the one pump for over $1000. He demanded $800 upfront, which I had to have my neighbors give him because I was out of town, then demanded another $3600 because his suppliers would not give him credit (red flag). I hired another company to come out and pump out the tank that would hold me until I got back. When the qualified company came out and subsequently fixed the problem, the problem was that Ron McManus did not put in a high enough horsepower pump in the first place and the liquid was not getting to the other pumping station so it filled the tank and the alarm went off. McManus put a 1hp versus the correct 2hp pump and that WAS the problem. My problem was created by Mr. Ron McManus which he was going to "fix" for over $6000. The other pump as well as the drainfield was inspected by the qualified technician and was found the be fine. I am currently trying to get my $800 back from Mr. Ron McManus because there is absolutely no evidence that he did anything at all but cannot find him now.
