Dealing with Bowen was great. Everything went according to the plan, and I got a call before the service to confirm and get directions. Everything was done efficiently and with quality in mind. I received a lot of good advice and the gentleman was truly very knowledgeable. This is not the first time Bowen comes to our house, and the experience is excellent every time.
No nickel-and-diming with Davis Septic
My tank had not been pumped for 10 years, but there are just the 2 of us in the house and we are very careful not to put anything down the drain that should not be put into a septic system. Everything went very well with the septic pump. It was just a matter of time until I would have had a backup, caught it just in time in my opinion. Davis Septic was wonderful. Nice guys, knowledgeable and polite. Pumped both sides (my tank is a newer 2 chamber type), cleaned filter, pressure washed the tank and in and out lines. Put sod aside and put all dirt onto tarps. Did not leave any mess. $575 well spent. They charge one price no matter how deep, mine was 33 down to the top. I highly recommend...
I called for my mother. they came out the same day. jimmy explained our options and answered all of our questions. seemed friendly and polite.
The Honest Septic Man
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...
Before replacing our 30yo system, we did extensive research. But who the heck understands what all the tech terms mean? Not us. We contacted the company that we've had a service contract with for 10 years and their representative spent barely 10 minutes and explained virtually nothing. He didn't seem like he cared too much that we were concerned about spending several thousand dollars with his outfit. Then we made an appointment with Joe, who came and explained EVERYTHING. All the terms, all the options, compared new tech with older, suggested different models and gave us reasons why they would be good or better than another. He explained financing options. He didn't pressure us. He was...
