I have never seen such professional and knowledgeable crew in my life. I have owned 7 new homes yet this was the first one with a septic field and when I had difficulty because the original plumber had plumbed the entire thing wrong (and this is in a very nice neighborhood with reputable builders) and it began to back up, (what a nightmare), Byron originally came out and then Russell and helped us to resolve the issue. The supervisor Carlos exhibited outstanding customer service and we are very grateful to the entire team. Thanks again! You are the best!! Denise D.

I wanted to let you know about the great job and service provided by your techs, Scott and Clarence. They called me on their way over, were on time, answered all my questions, and were extremely courteous. They exemplify professionalism and superior service. I will definitely recommend your company in the future! Dawn Whigham

…I just wanted to pass on my pleasure with your company, and that Dianne, Scotty, and Tavaris should all be commended. I couldn’t remember the septic company we used until I Googled Fayette Septic and I saw Bishop listed and it jogged my memory. I wanted to send you the review I posted on listed below. Please extend my gratitude towards, Dianne, Scotty and Tavaris, they are all truly great people and I could not have hoped for better service.

There is nothing worse than finding out at the last minute your septic tank has filled up and sewage is backing up in your bathtubs as it did for me this morning. Mr. Bishop installed our original drain field in 1998 and there’s never been a problem. I don’t know why in the world anyone would write a bad review about this company. This morning when I called I got Dianne on the phone, she was one of the most helpful people ever, sent out 2 great employees (Scotty and Tavaris), they were here by 10am, where another septic company told me it would be 3pm before they could come. I would highly recommend this company to anyone who needs any septic work. Scotty and Tavaris went out of their way, did extra work, and the price was an excellent value. If you live anywhere near the Fayetteville area you would be a fool to call any other company. These days you can’t hardly trust anyone anymore and it’s a pleasure to know that there are still trustworthy companies like Bishop Septic. Highly Recommended!!!!! Charles Little
