Not what we were planning on getting into 2 days before vacation!! But Advanced Septic Services is the best! Great men, great work!! Thank you, will recommend always! Quick response to our urgent call over weekend.

My wife and I would like to thank you for all your dedicated service in dealing with our septic system. Our driveway was a challenge but you never left us without coming out. We always could call and you would help us.

They replaced the wiring and flotation devices in my septic tank. They were extremely professional and stayed late till the job was done, all for a reasonable price (came out less than they had originally estimated). They gave me the option of assisting with digging a trench for new wiring in order to save on labor costs. Will definitely be using them again.

If you ever need to have a Septic/plumbing problem solved this is the company you must use. Highly Professional, quick response and dedicated to doing the job right the first time. I highly recommend any service they can provide. Been with them for 16 years and was never disappointed.

“It’s been years since Advanced Septic Services brought all the clean outs up to the surface with extensions. Before we had to dig out the tank coverings. Much easier, cleaner, faster, and cheaper in the long run. Very professional workers, too.”

Thank you for the work that was done to fix our septic alarm system. The professionalism and courtesy by everyone involved was superb! We will not hesitate to refer your company to others.” 

Thank you for helping us last Thursday. Obviously, we feel much better & cleaner. Especially noteworthy, we compliment both of you on your engineering of the stand pipe on the system in our back yard and your skill and success in replacing the three stone sections on the walk. Attention to detail certainly makes you successful! We compliment also the care you bestow on your equipment. Thank you again and Godspeed.”

“I am telling anyone that will listen about the excellent service you all provide, so I hope you are not inundated too badly with new customers. 🙂 You just can’t imagine how happy and relieved we were to have Mark show up so fast today and get our problem corrected so quickly and at a very reasonable cost. Thank you again. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”

Was recently at a softball tournament and had to use other facilities by a different company, and just wanted you to know how much we, as the organization as a whole, appreciate how wonderful your company is!!!! Can’t say thank you enough for what a wonderful job you all do!” (KH, Duncannon)

Thank you for such clean portable toilets! We could never get my grandson to use one willingly, but we were at a carnival and he had no choice. He could not stop talking about how good it smelt and it was clean, he said. Now he says if it’s not an  Advanced Septic toilet, I am not using it! Just had to tell you this. Not only do adults appreciate your clean units, but kids also. Keep up the good work!!!”
