Septic tank pumping, Digging, New lid
This was really smooth, called them first thing in the morning as our tank was already overflowing or that I though initially, which really was not the case after all. Anyways they showed up the same morning which was way sooner than I expected. The previous owner had used JJ Septic before so I let them do the digging as they already knew exactly where the tank and the lids were located. I decided that I'll pay the extra $100 for digging this time, which was a good decision as it was really hot day. ;-) Now that I know the location and have marked both lids I can do (or make my sons do) the digging the next time and save that $100. Joey who was the driver was really nice guy, I had ton of questions about septic system as this is the first home we have with one but he was able to answer all my questions like how long the concrete tanks last, how often they should be pumped, what other tank types are available and how much it might cost if I need to install a new tank in near future. After Joey emptied the tank he figured out that the pipe leading to the tank which has a 90 degree angle was actually blocked so we (I was helping with the water hose) cleared that out. Also one of the lids was in pretty bad shape so that got replaced too which was additional $75. After all this Joey filled up the holes he dug earlier and was on his way about hour or so later when he came in. I must say that I was very happy with the service and will call them again when it's time to pump the tank again.

Septic tank pumped
When I made the initial call to the company, they picked up. Receptionist was cheerful and kind and more than helpful with identifying the problem, offering information on how to prepare for the service appointment, i.e., locating the two septic tank lids and digging around them to avoid having them do it at an extra cost. Even found out that the company had been to my house over 11 years ago before I purchased the property, and gave me information about the tank that I did not know. Very helpful!
When service man arrived, he was professional and informative. Offered referrals to companies we might need in the future for septic issues JJ Septic did not offer.
Overall I would use this company again and easily recommend them to anyone with septic pumping needs.

Had my septic tank pumped . .
They called on the day of the appointment asking if they could move the appointment time up, which was a pleasant surprise..so, they arrived early and pumped the tank..they did a visual tank inspection, providing a fairly detailed explanation of what they saw...they were respectful of plants/landscaping, keeping the septic area very neat & clean with no plant damage from hoses, etc.
Dan was friendly, courteous and knowledgeable...I will definitely use JJ Septic again, and highly recommend them to you.

They clean my septic tank and I have been using their service for around 20 years.
They always come on time. They are very responsive and answer promptly whenever I call them on an emergency basis. Their pricing is reasonable. They are professional and the quality of their service is very good. I have been satisfied with their service.

JJ Septic was recommended by McKenna Construction who appear to do extensive septic tank installation in our area (Solana Beach). I tried to contact 2 other highly recommended septic cleaning services on Angie's List. Unfortunately, their tankers were too large (2500 gal+) to reach our septic tank at the top of a steep driveway. So, I contacted McKenna and they referred me to JJ Septic who appears to do a lot of cleaning for their customers. JJ Septic contact was professional and their truck arrived on time with extra hose, just in case. Unlike the other references, it was a small truck (1200 gal) that was able to turn around at the top of the driveway. The extra hose was unnecessary and JJ was able to do the job with little difficulty.
The job was completed in under an hour despite the steep hillside to reach the tank. Recommend you tell them any special conditions you may have. Overall, I was apprehensive that this job could not be done but, was relieved when JJ was able to do it. Their charge was slightly higher ($415) than other quotes ($405) but, it was well worth it. Also, their office contact lady appeared more familiar with the requirements of this unenviable job than any other company's contact (she read a list of special service prices extra long hose cost, water clean out of tank with excessive solids). Based on my experience, I would give JJ a call if you have any special circumstances.

Pumped the septic tank.
We have had this company pump our tank for a number of years and have never had any problems with them. The price has almost doubled since the last time our tank was pumped. We were told this was due to increasing fees and they were very apologetic about it. They are usually on time unless they are held up by an earlier client who doesn't have their tank ready for pumping. The actual pumping if your tank is uncovered and ready is very fast. They send us reminders and call when it is time for pumping.
