We have been using A1 septic for many years and our experience has always been a pleasant one. The new owner took the time to answer my questions and actually explain what was going on in my aged septic system. NOTE TO SELF: BABY WIPES ARE NOT SEPTIC SAFE!!!!!!! All work was completed just as promised and workers respected my Covid fears by wearing PPE'S I received 4 quotes from other Plumbing companies however A1 septic was the only one who came out immediately. VERY REASONABLY priced $$

They made me feel like they genuinely appreciated my business. I'm sure I will be using A1 for many years to come. They are the BESTEST!!!!!

Got here on time, was very friendly and informing us about our septic tank and what we can do for a better septic tank experience. I would definitely recommend this company for septic tank waste removal. Thank you very much.

Phil was very helpful. He tried to help out with our problem. I would have gave a tip but wasn't sure if it was aloud. I was also wondering if Phil was single. I know that's not very business like. But I found him to be very attractive. I loved his attitude. Very nice. He saw me at my worst but was hoping he could see me in a better light.

Looks like the new owner of A-1 Septic is making things right. Thank you for contacting us on our previous encounter. You made it right and that is what matters. We will call A-1 Septic again.

From the first phone call the end of the servicing of our septic service Daniel, Cheyanne, Phil, and the two technicians (whose names escape me right now) all provided fast and friendly service, with excellent communication and punctuality.

I would recommend calling them for your plumbing and septic needs.

Rogelio A., Morada, CA Via Yelp Testimonial

Very Friendly and Professional.

After they were finished with the Service we had a Question about the tank and a lid that we were replacing. The Owner himself gave us a call back and came out the next morning to look at a concern we had. They were very helpful and promp.

Honest and good work is hard to find these days and A-1 actually provided that service. Thank you !!!!!

Wayne Heffington Via Google Review

Thank you for your help and prompt service. Ladies in the office were knowlegable and friendly. Guys came out and pumped it and suggested new leech line. Got a great quote and had it done quick. I would use them again.

Robert D., Oakdale, CA Via Yelp Testimonial

Awesome prompt service, they came out and pumped out multiple septic tanks for our company already before we demo them and tie the sewer lines to the city main. The drivers are always super nice and make sure they clean up after themselves. We will definitely be doing further business with this company.

These folks are the real deal. Helpful, and honest. People that gripe about changing prices; myriad of variables can change the price on what they do.
