“I spoke with the owner (Craig) on Sunday afternoon and he came out early Monday morning and drained my tank and offered instructions on how to handle problems in the future. Very prompt, professional, and a really nice person to deal with. Comes when he says he will.”

JP Schaubeck

“Had a septic tank back up on me over the weekend. Called herring, and they helped get me through to Monday. On Monday, they showed up when they said, knocked out the job, explained some of the basics of the septic tank to help get me through any future issues, and charged a fair price. Great service, military discount as well.”
