Customer Comments & Testimonials


Fred impressed me with his knowledge and straightforwardness on how to take care of my septic tank. He most definitely maintains his equipment and truck with excellence. I will be passing my experience on to my friends to call on Fred and D&S Sanitation with all septic problems as I've finally found someone with the integrity I've been searching for.


We had 5 days from the day the contract was signed to get the septic system inspected at our new home. Our county guy wouldn't touch it, so our realtor called Fred. Not only did he come out within the 5 days, but he came out on Labor Day! He completed the inspection, drained the tank, and chatted with us like an old friend. He gave us advice, and left us with a hand shake. We are sure to use him again in the future at our new home!


D&S is the one to call. This guys is A #1. We've had bad experiences and wished we had found him first. No doubt first class. I tell my friends he's the guy to call.


GREAT SERVICE!!!! we called him as he was closing, he had already cleaned out his tank on the truck and was walking out the door when we called. he came right out and pumped the tank, after hours, and did not charge us any extra for the after hours service! and to top it off we live about 30 miles from ottawa, and he still came out! He was really friendly and talked with my husband the whole time he was pumping the tank. We found out the person my parents had just bought the house from had lied to them when they told my parents that they had never had problems with the septic and had never had to have it pumped, cause he is the one who has pumped it for the last many years! it is time to have septic pumped again and we are DEFINATELY using d+s sanitation! would recommend him to ANYONE! You won't be dissappointed!!!


Last summer Fred came out for a quick "couple of hours" fix that ended up (because of a bad original installation that neither of us had anything to do with) being an all day project that he did wonderfullly. Then last week prior to my schedualling the tank clean out (yes Fred warned me but i kept putting it off) The tank plugged but he showed up that same day and got me going again. I will make sure I schedule the next tank cleaning but if something else does happen I know I can depend on Fred doing what he can to get things working. Fred I thank you again and will recommend you to anyone who askes and even those who don't. THANK YOU!


They say ignorance is bliss, but not when it comes to septic systems. Not only did Fred Hornbaker do an outstanding job of pumping my tank and installing risers, he gave me a detailed Septic System 101 education. This included helping me to locate all my lateral lines and pointing out various drainage problems on my property which impacted the septic system. Wish I'd known about D&S Sanitation long before today. Fred’s info would have saved me much time, effort and money to correct septic and drainage problems I'd created for myself due to ignorance. Thanks much!
