I recently had my septic pumped out by a big company that offered the service for 199. While pumping this company told me that my drain line looked "dark" and told me I needed to have an additional $3,200 worth of work. I told them I'd think about it. I called JC Secptic Service and spoke with Jeff to ask for a 2nd opinion or if he could beat their price. Jeff explained that this was a scam and I didn't need that work. Just to be sure, I had Jeff come out for a service call to take a look inside and possibly replace the rear baffle. He confirmed that not only did I not need the $2,800 worth of chemical and drain pumping, but I didn't even need a new baffle quoted at $500. He said everything looked fine. I happily paid him his service fee and will be contacting him regarding my next scheduled pump service next time. Jeff may charge more for a septic pump than the big stores, but you're getting a quality pump without the scams. I keep learning the same lesson time and again with big companies (plumbers, electricians, septic, roofers...). Always go with a local small business and you'll end up better. Highly Recommended!

I needed my 1,000 gal tank pumped/pump inspected ($400) and a riser added ($750) because the tank had been installed too deep. JC Septic was easy to schedule, and graciously assessed my tank without my being there. I had to wait four weeks to get on the schedule. I like the that owner greeted me before starting work. Unfortunately, they cut an auxiliary gas line that was foolishly placed over the septic tank. This caused me a great deal of stress, trying to figure out what had been cut and wondering who should be held responsible to fix it. JC Septic initially said they could do nothing for me and there was no way to know the line was there, since it was past the meter and therefore would not have been marked by the utilities service. My husband and I had the gas company come out to cut off that line of gas and make sure we would all be safe. The riser was installed, the tank cleaned, the pump inspected, and the extra dirt spread carefully into some holes left from our previous stump grinding. (Where the tank lid was removed, we will need to add sod.) JC Septic later knocked $100 off my bill for the gas line hassle, which I thought was pretty generous. (This was in addition to my $25 Angie's list discount.) Although the day was not without its challenges, overall, I was very pleased with how JC Septic made such an effort to make things right. They also did not try to frighten me into having more work done, just alerted me to possible future problems.

The technician and his father arrived on time & cleaned up after his job was complete. He was fair in pricing and recommended future maintenance repairs but did not pressure me. I recommend this company if you need septic service of any kind, and I will be using them again for those future repairs.

I had to call JC Saturday at 4:00 pm because of my septic tank backing up, he was able to be onsite Sunday at 1:00. Very nice guy and left my yard in great shape after having to dig to the tank. He definitely took extra time to make sure the yard was disrupted as little as possible. I highly recommend this company!

They did an excellent job on repairing damage that a tree had done to our septic tank and the price was reasonable. Our neighbor had to replace his entire system and JC Septic was $4,000 less than the first quote. JC Septic finished his job quickly and he is overjoyed!

This is the second time I have used JC Septic and their service is incredible. They are very friendly, and do not try and sell you stuff you dont need. I was very impresessed with them, and will definitely use them in the future.

Found them on the web and called up. I was surprised when the owner answered. Great service. The price was a little higher but the service was worth it. A++
