I am looking for a referral to get my septic tank pumped. I am in Orange County. We've been in this house for a little over a year now, and the original home inspector referred JC Johnson Septic Tank Pumping Service in Hillsborough, but I can't find any reviews on them ---- does anyone have any experience with them?

Another thread here recommended Bailey's, but their site indicates they only service Wake, Franklin and Johnston Counties.

I have a big yard, that's completely fenced in (where the septic is). They would likely need extra pipe to access my tank, so I'd rather find a flat-rate company.

Thanks!

Is a referral really necessary for this type of service? It's not like you're building an addition to your house.

giffman for the win. Its true, a septic tank pumping is a septic tank pumping. I would just call around and find the best rate.

It wouldn't hurt if you knew the details of your system too. As an example, our neighborhood typically has separate solids and effluent tanks. A few neighbors had their effluent tanks pumped and their solids tanks ignored. Needless to say, it was quite easy but rather ineffective.

We've used Lyons in Morrisville. Would definitely use them again.

So responsiveness, reliability, honesty, trustworthiness don't matter when selecting a septic tank pumping vendor? Any Joe Schmoe with a vacuum truck and hose will do? Maybe it's mostly about price, but surely these other things must matter a little?

We recently used Clean Septic. After he finished pumping the tank, the man (whose name I forgot) stayed to answer my questions about our drain field, then walked back into the woods with us to look for the drain field.

Something that matters to me is that a service person is willing and able to explain things to me.
