About US

My name is Eric Daktar. I am the owner and founder of Independent Septic and Sewer. Over the past 13 years, I have worked for 3 different plumbing companies. I have developed my skills through countless hours of troubleshooting on-site septic systems. I have worked with residential and commercial clients, doing up to 3 or 4 calls a day. I specialize in locating tanks, pumping tanks, diagnosing problems, removing roots, cutting concrete sidewalks and driveways to gain access to the tanks, replacing broken tank lids, replacing main sewer lines to tanks, drain field repairs, cleaning and clearing clogs out of the sewer, drain field lines, and more.

I want to be open and honest with customers about their septic systems. If you have any questions at any time in the process, feel free to ask me! I will also ask you detailed questions about the septic system before I come out to your home and give you an offer. I believe in quality workmanship, honesty, and solutions to any problems you may have with your septic system at a reasonable price. The bottom line is if you hire Independent Septic and Sewer to pump your tank or work on your septic system, I promise you will get professional old-fashioned quality service at a fair price. We offer complimentary troubleshooting, second opinions, customer service, and diagnostics with every project we take on.

Reviews

We cannot say enough about this professional, local, family run business.The office has always been friendly, responsive, and accommodating with scheduling service. And the team that came out to pump our septic was cordial, organized, and efficient. We watched the process from start to finish and felt free to ask anything about what they were doing and what they recommend. Responses were always informative and helpful and never came off as an upscale or push for more services.

Our septic system backed up into the house. Independent Septic arrived in about 2 hours. They pumped the tank and found the pipe leading to the drainage field was blocked. They hydrojetted and pumped the line to free up drainage. Then installed a cap to make future pumping of the tank much easier. They were very informative, professional, and responsive. We will use them again in the future. Really liked Cody and Josh Daktar and their Dad handling the phone. Would use them again in a heartbeat.

Had issues with slow drains. Called to have septic tank pumped out. Josh and Cody came out and pumped out the tank. They checked the flow of water coming from the house to the tank and found roots in the main drain. They replaced the main drain and had eveything working with in a couple of hours. They were very professional, explained everything throughly with showing me all the issues. I watched them do the repairs and can tell you they difinitely know what they are doing! I will recommend them to my family and friends.

These guys are great! Had them pump my septic tank. They were on time, upfront about costs, and didn't try to pressure me on any repairs.

These guys were very helpful over the phone and in person when they came out for an inspection. They seemed very knowledgeable and patiently answered all my questions. Unfortunately they found some issues with the septic that led me to not purchase a home, but it likely saved me headaches down the line. Would not hesitate to use again and highly recommend!

Great company! I called to have our septic tank pumped, and they were able to send a crew out within 48 hours. Josh and Cody showed up ahead of schedule, we’re very polite, pleasant, and informative. They walked us through every step, had us review their work throughout the process, and patched our yard up really well afterwards. We will be using this company for all of our septic needs from now on. Thanks guys! See you next time!

I am a service plumber that needed a septic tank pumped unexpectedly to complete my repairs. Called and spoke to a nice gentleman that explained that they were booked. I explained the situation and he squeezed me in. Josh and Cody showed up 20 minutes later. Worked hard to get the tank pumped that full of solids to the lid. I will now be referring Independent for any septic issues my clients may have. Thanks for expedited service

Karen F.I called Independent Septic and Sewer for help with my septic problem on Saturday morning and they were at my house within 2 hours and had the job completed in about 4 hours. Eric went step by step and kept me informed about the problem and each step he was taking to bring about the solution. He and Josh drained the tank, flushed the field and the line to the house and also used their artistic skills to build a new baffle for the rear of the tank.They were prompt, professional, courteous, skilled and saved me in the throes of a major crisis.I will never again wait so long between Septic Suckings and will definitely call them to do the job the next time.Thank you Eric and Josh

Had a blockage in the septic tank backing up in the basement when we flushed or turn on water in the house. Me and my wife started calling around and companies were days out for service. My wife called independent septic and sewer as we make it down the list with a answer from Eric. With a opening now. 40 minutes later Eric and Josh were at my front door . polite helpful to explain what wrong how they will fix it and seem to be start to finish a hour . will always call them first and tell anyone with septic problem call independent septic and sewer. Great service willing to help your financial needs to get your service complete . AWESOME SERVICE.

Eric & Josh came out to my home today & I was absolutely amazed at the work those 2 men did & how fast it got done. With the problems we were having I assumed it would take well over an hour or 2 maybe even more to fix the issue & they got it done in about 45 mins. On top of that, they were so friendly & they both have amazing people skills. I would absolutely recommend these guys for the job again & again & again!

Called on Sunday and they worked us into the first slot on Monday due to an emergency situation. Eric was great on the phone and explained things. They communicated as they were arriving and showed up on time. Our tank was disgusting and had apparently not been pumped in many years, maybe never. UGH! We bought the house last year and falsely assumed the previous owners had it serviced. Independent Septic had a flat rate service for cleaning the tank. Had we gone with a company that added extra fees for removing sludge, we would have paid far more. Our line from the house was clogged with grease and he ran a camera down the pipe to show my husband what we were dealing with, so we felt having the line power flushed made sense, and the pricing seemed fair, all things considered. Best part, we can flush our toilets again! They were prompt, courteous, stuck to the price we were quoted to clean the tank, and took care of additional maintenance all on the same trip for a fair price in our opinion.
