Septic tank systems are complicated. Not just any handyman or plumber can deal with a septic tank problem. It takes years of experience, the proper equipment, and training to deal with something as potentially dangerous as a septic emergency or repair. Here are the things to look for in a good septic tank company.
Experience in the Community
While experience is probably a given when it comes to hiring a reputable septic tank company, the experience must be centered in the area where you live. Different states, towns and counties have various regulations regarding septic systems, so the company you choose must be familiar with all of them. Be sure to look at any potential company’s website carefully and check reviews from your community members.
Septic tank repairs require very specific equipment, so it is imperative that the company you hire has quality, up to date equipment and can handle any size septic tank. When it comes to pumping, septic tank companies will need a large truck with a vacuum hose designed for septic tanks. They should also have video camera equipment for thorough inspections, as well as various other specialty equipment.
Highly Trained Technicians
A septic tank company is only as good as its employees, so everyone they hire should be thoroughly screened and trained. Do not be afraid to ask a potential company what credentials they require of their employees and what sort of training they require.
Years of experience, the best equipment and trained workers do not mean much if the customer service is lousy. Be sure to look for a septic tank company that makes customer service a priority. Promptly returned phone calls, answered emails, and polite, quick service is never too much to ask for.
