Goodman Sanitation Testimonials

Dear Goodman Sanitation,

I wanted to write a letter to say “thank you” for your exceptional service. Earlier this year your company installed a new septic tank at my residence. The old septic tank and related parts of our systems were failing and had to go.

I was pleasantly surprised by the professionalism of your employees and the careful attention they demonstrated to ensure that my yard and plants were treated well. Before the excavation started, they took the time to outline the steps that would be taken to remove the old tank and install a new one. The job was completed with minimum invasiveness, within the time allotted, within budget, with no surprises, and with components that I feel confident were right for the install.

Of particular note. Teresa of your office staff knew the details of my project and was always available to help me with advice when I needed it. I especially appreciated her experience, knowledge and humor. Without hesitation, I recommended “ Goodman Sanitation” to anyone with septic needs or problems.

Goodman has done all our work at the Ark R.V. since we’ve owned it (4 1/2yrs), you have been great!! Colbey came to my home today, unplugged a clog, pumped the tank, showed me how it all worked, etc. He’s a great kid!!

Thanks Goodman-

Dear Teresa,

I usually don’t praise service people who come out to my house unless they go the extra mile. I was completely impressed by your service technician Colbey Browne. Colbey was so helpful in taking the time to explain about the septic systems in laymen’s terms. His willingness to take the time to figure out that it was not our septic systems but the piping from the toilet to the piping under the house that was causing the problem. I chose to have the septic tank emptied since the service call charge would go towards that service. I also want to thank Teresa for not charging me for another service call since Colbey came out to my house yesterday. I will highly recommend your sanitation service to my friends who have septic tanks.

I sure do appreciate the level of customer service I received from your company from start to finish. It’s very refreshing when you realize businesses still exist that under promise and over deliver.

Thank you!

Thank you again!

I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for the services you provided on December 26, 2012. On Christmas day we started having septic back up problems. I called around 8am on Wednesday, December 27 and before 10a, your Technician, Colbey Browne was on the scene and hard at work. He pumped the tank, but unfortunately there was more to it than that. Colbey explained the situation in very understandable terms and gave his suggestions as to how the problem could be corrected. He said he had some other appointments that he had to take care of first, but that he, or another Technician would return as soon as possible. By 1p Colbey had returned and by 2p the problem was corrected and we were back in business. I highly commend Colbey for his fast, knowledgable and efficient service, and for the way he explained everything he was doing. And the cost of the services were quite reasonable. So, thank you Goodman Sanitation and Colbey Browne for restoring our septic systems (and our Holiday cheer), quickly, reasonbly and correctly.

There are inspections for homeowners who want to remodel their homes with additions to the house or property.

There are inspections for hardship cases for homeowners who want to add a mobile home to the property and attach to the existing septic systems.

There is the "time of transfer" inspection / evaluation when the homeowner is selling the property.

Each of these inspections require that the tank be uncovered, the distribution box(es) be uncovered, that there is an amount of water introduced to the tank, to watch the contents flow to the distribution box and be accepted by a "thirsty" drainfield, to pump the tank and note any deficiencies.

To do an inspection on any and all pump vault components and panels along with electrical connections. To provide a detailed plot plan meeting all DEQ Specified requirements with all DEQ forms filled in completely with our technicians "certified" number and identification on the reports.
