I would highly recommend choosing Walt Steuer Pumping! Excellent service, very dependable, honest and high integrity! Tom is a great guy!

~ Alex Mitchell

Great service and truly cares about the customer. The honesty and customer oriented focus starting with our first phone call to the service call was a great relief as a first time homeowner. Wouldn't call anyone else for future needs.

~ Tyler Bartosh

First let me say, if everyone ran their business like Tom does, there would be A LOT more successful businesses in the world! Tom is courteous, honest and extremely knowledgeable. He came out and pumped our tank and fixed a backup issue when he said he would and was very reasonable. He knows his business and is very personable. He will address all of your concerns and talk to you like a human being and believe it or not, he takes ALL calls! So you will be dealing directly with the owner of the company. He understands the importance of "word of mouth" and goes above and beyond any service expected.

~ Scott Bendickson

This guy was great! After assuming that my septic was full to the brim and needed pumping, he came out and gave me an education on how the system works and that I DID NOT need it pumped and probably wouldn't for a few years. I was so relieved- for many reasons: first that his company responded to my call before the others and second- it didn't cost me $450 (like the other guy who was entirely too anxious to do). Thanks Walt Steuer pumping, you forever have my business and my recommendation.

~ Stacy F

Tom was on time and prepared for most anything. He honestly explained and educated me as to how my system works. He told me although my tank looked full to me and needed pumping that it did not need pumping as that is the was it's supposed to look. He also offered me a plan to maintain my system and help avoid problems and/or prolong it's life. Refreshing honesty, customer focused and priced fairly.

~ David Bayse

Honest and Hardworking! Great Price and courteous of my time! Tom called me prior to meeting me at my location so that I wouldn't be waiting around for him and worked quickly so that I could make it back to work on a tight schedule! I definitely Recommend Highly!

~ Isaac Knorr

Called on Friday as my lines were backing up in the house ... I expected to discover a huge problem when he arrived, and he could have told me that anyway as I wouldn't have known better. However, he took the time to show me that the filter was clogged and that the tank itself and the lines out to the tank were fine. I appreciate the honesty, and that he took the time to explain to me what was going on, how the system works, and what I should do to keep it running smoothly. Thanks!!!

~ Brian Soloman

Simply AMAZING service. First off I called them on a Saturday morning to check prices. The phone rang several times then went to voicemail. I opted to keep checking other companies and hung up. Literally seconds later the phone rang in my hand. They called me back! I arranged to have them come out and pump the system but only if they thought it needed it. The day arrived and I had to work. After digging around a bit and examining the system they called and said, "Hey you're good for at least another two to three years." I was also shocked at how affordable the inspection was. Can you even bring a truck out for that much I wondered??? Anyway I would recommend this company to anyone. Thank you!

~ Jason & Heather

Fantastic, honest team. Reasonable prices. Quick turn over times. You guys are great. Telling everyone about you.

~ Jason LaVanture

My wife and I are just finishing the paper work for our first home, wanting to know more about septic tanks i call the closest pumping service (Steuer Pumping).
Tom picked up the phone and had so much information about what go's into a septic tank (no pun intended).

I'm very glad i called, i will definitely be using Steuer Pumping in the future.

~ Andrew Dunlop

I recently moved into my house and I had never lived in a house with a septic tank. As a result, I did a lot of reading about septic tank care and asked a lot of people. As I did my research, I felt as though I was receiving a lot of conflicting information. As a result, I decided to have my septic tank pumped to make sure everything was OK.

I called Walter Steuer, as well as several other companies. I decided to go with Steuer because they were very polite and willing to answer any questions that I had.

Upon arrival at my home, Tom began to get set up in order to pump my tank. After about 10 minutes...
