Top-notch service from Downing Septic Tank Cleaning! Came within a few hours of us calling to pump our tanks. The price was very reasonable. Very professional and gave great advice on proper care for our systems and what to do if we have future issues.

They were very helpful and prompt to attend to our need. I would do more stars if I could. If you have plumbing or septic needs for sure give them a call. They also gave advise on how to avoid future issues that we weren't even aware of as new homeowners who have not had as much experience with a septic tank.
