These guys are awesome! I just bought a home in Julian and about 6 days in my downstairs bathrooms flooded.

I have a septic system which is new to me. All I had to go by was some paperwork from an inspection done in March. SLUDGEBUSTERS was closed by the time I got home from work to this disaster. I called the emergency phone number online and within an hour, Edward and his partner were here, in Julian handeling what turned out to be a clogged pipe leading to the system due to the house sitting for almost a year. They explained what happened and here comes the kicker.....they didnt charge us because they had just been out in March. THANK YOU SLUDGEBUSTERS, EDWARD AND HIS PARTNER for helping us out!! Life-savers!

A great big thank you to Sludgebusters here in Ramona!

We were totally up to our armpits in you know what.

The entire staff was very responsive to our pretty immediate needs and never once were upset with a few and frequent phone calls...the technician Peter was/is terrific and is the very postive face of this local company.

The price was reasonable as compared other locations I solicited.

I highly recommend Sludgebusters and especially Peter!

Ed and Brad did a fantastic job. They were able to fit us in quickly, arrived right on time and were very knowledgeable. I appreciated them taking the time to explain what needed to be done and answering all of our questions. They clearly take pride in their work and have the experience to troubleshoot issues related to plumbing and septic tank functioning. Great work, great people. We highly recommend!

A big Thank You to Sludgebusters (7703742112) who gave advice on minimizing problems including preventing flooding when we realized septic backed up, and were there bright and early to deal with problem next morning. System pumped out and back to working order in no time! Nice folks, good job!

We used Sludgebusters for the first time. Great communication and very punctual. Peter was our technician and he was knowledgeable, informative and friendly. We learned a lot about our system while he worked. The price is competitive and we will definitely use them again!!

This company is top notch from beginning to end. I have used them 3 times over the years and from the setting of the appointment to the service call, nothing but professional. I will recommend Sludgebusters to anyone who has septic. Thanks Ed!

Ed and Brian... You guys are amazing! These two guys found my wedding ring in the septic tank!!! I will never be thankful enough. From receptionist to the pumping, I was always treated kindly and professionally. They found my "Diamond in the Rough"

Peter came out today from Sludge Busters to pump septic tank. He was extremely professional and helpful. He had no problem driving down the long steep driveway. Would not hesitate to hire Sludge Busters and any of their employees again!

Re: Septic pump out & repair 5/5/16.

Ed is a true veteran professional that assesses situations and performs the tasks methodically. I was kept informed and witnessed quality workmanship. Enjoyed his presence. Thank you. Jerry Upham, Valley Center

Ed was awesome. I called this morning to see if he could come out today because our toilet was backing up into the shower and he was here before 2 p.m. and had it pumped and working again. I really appreciated his quick response.

Juanita C., El Cajon, CA Via Yelp Testimonial

This company really knows about customer service. An emergency arose at my house (the day before Thanksgiving) and I had 24 people coming for dinner. Sludgebusters was the only business that would help me out and allowed our celebration to take place. Every other business was "out" for the holiday! Wow! Emergencies happen and Sludgebusters were there to help! Can't say enough about their service. I am incredibly grateful to them. Thank you!!!!

Great costumer service. I was so nervous how much it would cost. When they told me I was thankful their pricing was very reasonable. Joe came out immediately and saved the day. Thank you Joe.

Veronica T., Ramona, CA Via Yelp Testimonial

We had an issue with our tank on a Sunday morning. I called several places and, only Sludgebusters had an Emergency Phone Number easily visible on their website. I called the number and it was answered right away by Ed which was awesome. He was out at our place within 2 hrs (he was finishing up another job when I called) and took care of the problem. Not to mention, we had great conversations while he was working. They've got another lifelong customer here.

Recently has our septic pumped and they showed up on time and got the job done quick. Great people!

MR M., Ramona, CA Via Yelp Testimonial

I have used them twice now and each time they surpass my expectations. We used them to pump and inspect our septic when we sold our home in Ramona. Ed came out and explained everything, he was very informative and conversational. We used them again when we needed to suck the sludge out of the bottom of our pool/swamp that had been sitting for years. It was much better than hauling it out by the bucket and was definitely money well spent. Even the office people are awesome to deal with. Thanks again guys for all of you help!

Sludgebusters Septic Service understands how to deliver excellence in service. Cost effective, courteous service delivered in a timely manner... and during the service, Peter answered all of my questions regarding the hows and whys of my septic system. I wouldn't even think of calling a different company.

Dave, Ramona

I know it sounds weird giving a review for a septic tank company, but believe me,if you need them you need them. I've been dealing with Sludgebusters to pump out my El Cajon property for the last 20 years and they have always given me fast, courteous, and expert service. I have no qualms recommending them to anyone.I know its not a glam business but thank goodness they are there. Yes Sludge Busters is a small family run business that bends over backwards to meet your needs, and give you the service and relief that you need.

Jason, San Diego

My neighbor and I just had Peter from Sludgebusters pump out our septic tanks. Great service, knowledgable, courteous, quick, clean and a good price. If you need your septic tank pumped, these are the guys. I highly recommend them.
